    I have mind-blindness, so I find this an unfathomable area of psychology. I think control has a certain relevance.

    Exactly the same thing that drives men to be bossy.

    Generalising much? I am bossy, however, I am a boss

    My Sister however, is so laid back she may as well be asleep.

    The beta "man" usually enables it. I could never let a girl boss me around let alone talk down to me.

    It's a kind of test to see if you would make a suitable mate to support her and her children.

    If she can dominate you then you don't cut the mustard and she will trample all over you because you are worthless.

    Borrowed time.

    Using labels such as Beta and/or Alpha you are so cool.

    It's my personality. I think it does have something to do with my Sister. I've always been independent and done everything myself. She's the type of person that needs a push - so I push (boss) her and it just stuck with me but it makes me good at my job.

    However, I do know when not to be bossy. I never am in relationships or with friends.

    It's not about being cool, I just can't find a single worded alternative to describe those men. There's nothing more unattractive to a woman than a man she can boss around, they have no respect for them. Women want to be put in their place whether they like to admit it or not.

    Even though I do not completely agree with him (2ndClass), don't go overboard with your claims, it's ridiculous.

    Generalisations are damaging. I'm bossy, and I'd far rather a man who says "yes dear" and go along with what I want (Arthur Weasley in Harry Potter, for example) than a guy who constantly wants to override me and boss me around. I would respect a guy who did what I wanted more than a man who didn't.

    If I were to be in a relationship with another bossy person, sparks would be flying pretty darn quick!

    That said, I could fall in love with a very dominant person and become the "submissive" person in the relationship, I don't know what is yet to come in life.

    He explicitly stated that woman like to be humiliated and undermined in anyway possible. It's not really a stretch to imagine what his views are on sexual abuse.

    Once an alpha comes along the bossy women can no longer compete.
