Are You An Alpha Female? 12 Qualities Of A Total Boss

When you think of alpha females, you might think of bitchy, bossy women who don’t take no for an answer and bulldoze through anyone who stands in their way. While strength and motivation are part of the picture, being a boss is about so much more. Does this sound like you?

You don’t suffer fools. By this I mean you don’t put up with BS. You’re not into gossip or unnecessary drama and you left playground games back in the schoolyard. You’re a grown woman and you act accordingly, with dignity, respect, and maturity. You expect and demand the same of anyone you interact with.

You know what you want and you’re not afraid to go after it. You’re certainly ambitious in all areas of life. You’ve probably had a list of short- and long-term goals made since you were a teenager and you’re determined to work your way through them even as you add more to the ever-growing list. You know that life is there for the taking and that’s exactly what you plan on doing. You’re unashamed to want more from life, and that’s exactly how you should be.

You never accept less than you deserve. Whether it’s a toxic guy cheating on you or your boss undercutting your work, you’re not here to be underappreciated. While you don’t expect a round of applause for every task you complete, you know you’re a smart, strong, worthwhile person with a lot to offer the world—and you expect to be treated accordingly. If people won’t comply, you’ll move on and find someone who will.

You stand up for what’s right. Whether something unfair is happening to you or a total stranger, you don’t hesitate to use your voice for the greater good. You know that if everyone continued to accept injustices just because they’re the status quo, the world would never change for the better. You have a brain and a voice and you’re going to use them both to stand up for what’s right.

You uplift and encourage other women. Instead of feeling competitive with your fellow females, you know there’s enough success to go around and you encourage the women you meet to be their absolute best just as you’re doing in your own life. You know that we’re stronger together than we are at each other’s throats.

You embrace your imperfections. Just because you’re a total badass doesn’t mean you don’t have flaws. You have plenty, you’re aware of them, you’re working on fixing the ones you can and you’ve made peace with the ones you can’t. You’re beautifully human and you love it.

You play as hard as you work. You bust your butt day in, day out to meet your goals and to continue creating your best possible life, but you also know that everyone needs to let their hair down every once in a while. Otherwise, what are you even working for? You know the importance of having fun and you make sure to have plenty of it.

You always come from a place of kindness. The world can be cruel and people can be unkind to each other, but you’re not about that. Instead, you aim to be warm, considerate, and respectful to everyone you meet, even when they wrong you. Kindness may be in short supply in the world in general but you have plenty of it to dole out.

You don’t need a relationship to be happy and fulfilled. While it’s great when you do find someone you really click well with, it’s certainly not a requirement for an amazing life. You make your own happiness and don’t depend on anyone else to make your world a better place.

You know there’s always room for improvement. You have confidence to spare but that doesn’t mean you’re not aware of all the ways in which you can still better yourself and your life. You challenge yourself every single day to level up and you’ll never give up on doing just that.

You’re curious and informed about the world around you. You’re intelligent and informed about world events, your local community, and the latest in science in technology. Whether you read the New York Times every morning or prefer to do your research online, you know knowledge is power and you can’t get enough of it.

You always trust your gut. At the end of the day, you know your intuition will always point you in the right direction. That’s not to say you’re not open to hearing advice and different perspectives, but no one knows what’s best for your life the way you do and you know it.
