I’ve been on a talk-radio binge lately, tuning into the “Sirius Stars Too” channel on, you guessed it, Sirius satellite radio, interestingly enough i’ve always previously thought talk-radio was a complete waste of time. Why would anyone listen to random people rant about useless shit that’ll never affect my life. Let’s just say i still haven’t changed my mind, but my routine at work needed to be changed a little.
So listening to these bozos talk, Jason Ellis, Covino, Rich and Jay Thomas, i noticed they all had one recurring theme, they all sounded Alpha as fuck, and treated everyone around them as lesser beings, especially the callers.
Jay Thomas called his woman co-worker “plump” and proceeds to tell her she eats all the wrong things.
Covino called a woman caller entitled, and asks her if she always had a princess attitude.
And Jason is just Jason, hyper dominant.
All this led me to think, are men talk-radio hosts more Alpha than the rest of us. One has to wonder are naturally they are on the radio, or if it’s all an act in order the get more listeners. I’m sure some of it, if not a majority of it is, but they do get some pretty retarded and nasty callers, therefore there has to be some natural Alphaness in there to deal with these kinds of people, i would assume.
I don’t think it’s possible to have a radio persona that goes completely opposite of you natural self outside the radio and at home. But on the other hand i don’t think being the way they are on the radio would fly with most friends and loved ones.
Anyways i’m rambling on. I guess if you want a good example on assholish retorts, how not to take anyone seriously, frame control and general conversational Alphaness, listen to talk-radio.
What do you guys think?
