If you could sum up all women into six categories, what would they be? Throughout history, women have been stereotyped and generalized in many ways. While each woman is unique, some common female personality types seem to recur repeatedly.
Here are the six most common female personalities, along with a little about each. Once you understand the various types, it will be much easier for you to understand her behavior (or your own) and connect on a deeper level.
Let’s now dive into each personality and find out how they differ from one another.
The Alpha Female Personality Types
This type of female can be found everywhere, from celebrities such as Beyoncé and Angelina Jolie to diligent office workers taking their lunch break at work.
Many women out there believe they possess some alpha traits but have several beta or omega characteristics that overshadow their alpha qualities.
For example, an attractive businesswoman might dress provocatively to catch the attention of colleagues or clients, yet may hesitate to express her sexuality in most other areas of her life due to fear of being labeled “slutty”.
Although the alpha female’s social instincts drive this behavior, it can be considered beta or omega behavior because it does not reflect her natural personality.
Characteristics of an Alpha Female
- Strong Willed
- Decision Maker
The Beta Female Personality Types
A beta female is submissive, caring, nurturing, and understanding. She wants to please others, especially men. She’s interested in romance, family, and children. A beta female is generally more emotional than an alpha female. She tends to put other people before herself.
She’s willing to sacrifice her own needs to ensure everyone around her is happy. She’s always looking out for others’ feelings and is concerned about how things affect them.

The Gamma Female
A gamma female would technically fall somewhere between an alpha and beta personality type, but I believe there are significant enough differences to warrant its own category.
The gamma personality is what we might normally consider the “normal” female personality: not too alpha and not too beta, just right in the middle. She has all sorts of emotions running through her mind at any given time and can be quite indecisive at times, which means that she will often go back and forth between alpha and beta behavior patterns.
She can be very good at manipulating other people’s emotions but has great difficulty controlling her own. She is usually the first to cry during a sad movie but may also be the first to laugh during a comedy show, reflecting an ocean of changeable emotions within herself.
A gamma female might be what some men consider to be “the ideal woman” because she possesses alpha and beta traits without any of the negative aspects of either gender. She is friendly, caring, nurturing, intelligent, socially capable, and sexually aware… And everything else that most men would want from a life partner.
The only major problem with this type of female is that they can be very difficult to understand because they tend to change their mind and behavior patterns so often.
Characteristics of a Gamma Female
- Well Liked
The Omega Female
Like the gamma female, we have the omega female somewhere in the middle between alpha and beta personalities.
As opposed to a beta or gamma personality, an omega female has more than enough alphaness within her mental makeup but prefers not to show it all the time. She changes her behavior every now and then as she moves from one thought pattern to another, but overall remains pretty much unchanged as she goes through life.
This type of woman is usually attracted very easily by males who display dominant behavior, yet she tends to see through all of their crap and will quickly lose interest if even the smallest of beta behavior patterns start to emerge.

The Sigma Female
The concept of the omega female is often discussed in the context of female personality types, particularly in relation to alpha and beta personalities. While the alpha female is seen as assertive, confident, and dominant, and the beta female is described as more nurturing and submissive, the omega female falls somewhere in between.
The omega female is described as having elements of both alpha and beta qualities within her personality. She possesses a certain level of assertiveness and confidence, but she may not always display it openly or consistently. Unlike the alpha female who is consistently dominant, the omega female may change her behavior and thought patterns from time to time.
In terms of relationships, the omega female is said to be attracted to males who display dominant behavior. However, she is also described as being able to see through any insincere or manipulative behavior from these dominant males. If she detects any signs of beta behavior, which can be seen as more submissive or less assertive, she may quickly lose interest.
Characteristics of a Sigma Female
- Feels inadequate
The Delta Female
Delta females are described as falling within the “normal” range of personality traits and lacking a strong dominant or submissive trait. They are seen as being able to work well with both men and women and often have good interpersonal skills.
One characteristic often associated with delta females is their tendency to become emotionally attached to romantic relationships. They may invest a significant amount of their emotional energy into their relationships and may have a strong desire for emotional connection and intimacy. This can sometimes lead to them becoming too emotionally attached, which may impact their well-being if the relationship ends or does not meet their expectations.
Delta females are also said to have an aloof or mysterious demeanor. They may appear reserved or distant, which can make it challenging for others to understand or get to know them initially. However, if someone manages to engage a Delta female in a conversation about her feelings or personal experiences, she may open up and share a wealth of interesting information about herself. This can create a sense of depth and intrigue in their interactions.
