Alpha and Abusive Aren’t the Same

I looked at the Which Alpha Male is right for you? quiz that I’ve seen in sev­er­al of my friends’ LJ entries. It is yet anoth­er test I could­n’t actu­al­ly com­plete because the author’s idea of an Alpha Male sounds like an abu­sive, con­trol­ling, inse­cure bas­tard. Not my kind of anything.

I know these quizzes are intend­ed to just be fun, but most of them reveal a heck of a lot more about the authors than about any­body who takes them, so I’m unclear as to why peo­ple post the results of them. I’m not slam­ming peo­ple who do it, I’m just curi­ous as to the reasoning.
