I'd say that all Satanists are staunch individualists, so because a lot of us tend to be very firm and determined when it comes to doing what we want to do and getting what we want to have--whether openly or more covertly--some folks might erroneously assume that we're all alpha dogs, when a lot of us are at our happiest and best when we get to lead a pack of one.
Roho, some psychological studies have actually found that second-in-command is actually a much more rewarding, much less stressful position to be in for many people. Being alpha dog or the big boss comes with a lot of responsibility and stress, and it tends to wear a lot of people down, especially those who don't have the right "alpha dog" personality type.
