Where are you in the wolf pack?
by Brian Whitney

As humans, we feel that we are above wolves because of our ability to progress as a civilization, but when it comes to building their own little tribes and societies, wolves simply can't be beaten.  Every wolf in its society knows exactly what role it has, and every wolf is also totally suited to its role. 

The Alpha is the leader of the pack, and usually the toughest wolf.  They make all the tough choices and decide what is going on, when it is going to happen, and dictate roles in the pack. Betas are the right-hand man of the Alpha, they help with the hunts and with keeping the pack in line, and every once in a while they try to take over the Alpha wolf's role. Then you have Deltas, who are the leaders of the middle of the pack. Then come Iotas, who are pups that just grew up to adults or newcomers to the pack who have yet to prove themselves. Then you have the Omegas, who are wolves who are either troublemakers, or disrespectful, basically, these are the wolves that don't care a whole lot about rules, or what they are expected to do in the pack! Take this quiz to find out where you rank in the wolf pack.
