Really ?

I know a hell of a lot of 2nd in command people that are simply fantastic at what they do, but have no desire to be in charge.

I also know a lot of people who operate just out of the lime-light, letting alpha-male wannabes knock themselves out before nipping in and getting what they want. Bit like the clever monkeys letting the alpha-male defend the pack, get into the blazing fights but then quietly shagging away while the alpha-male sleeps.

Depends if it is a perceived social position in the heirarchy that you crave from your peers - or the actual rewards

Being so one-dimensionally an alpha male is also a weakness.

More than one way to skin a cat.
