Where has this obsession with comparison come from ?

Social Posturing

As social animals, humans posture to situate themselves within groups and when they feel they're outside a group.

Almost no males think they are 'betas'.  They act like alphas at home, and when there are no other males in proximity.  So, here on the fora, they can chest thump, brow beat, strut, preen, and primp in self-aggrandizement and self-affirmation.  After all, who want's to admit their LOMUX 524-Ultra-Zoom is a flop, and that they're stuck with it?

To answer specifically, it is self-affirmation and not wanting to give any quarter.  Otherwise, they've become betas yet again.
