Wolves live, move and hunt in packs, and despite their savage nature, they abide by rules, and they have a leader, the alpha.

If you possess the strength of the alpha wolf preferring to lead rather than follow, and you have the qualities that set the alpha apart from the other wolves, then you aren’t just a wolf, you are an alpha wolf.
6. The wolf is true to its nature
Even the wolves in the zoos retain their savage natures. They are wild and unapologetically savage. They do not change themselves like the chameleon does, choosing instead to adapt to circumstances for survival and even in their adaptation, they remain true to their natures. Do you ignore the boxes society has placed on everyone to live your life to the fullest, do you kick against conformity and stereotypes instead of choosing to be yourself? If your answer is yes, then you need to look no further for the wolf in you.
5. Wolves define freedom
A wolf lives on its own terms. Its wild nature alone ensures it’s freedom. Wolves are free animals, who never let themselves be chained down and changed. They are their own bosses. If you see the wolf in you through these qualities, then you need no one to tell you who you are. Your very non-conforming nature branded you a wolf even before you knew you were one.
4. The wolf is fair
Wolves practice one of natures own laws. Treat me the way you want to be treated. The wolf believes in being fair, If you treat them fairly with respect, then you get respect. If you come with threats, then it will unleash its savage nature on you. Does this principle look like yours? Do you treat everyone according to the way they treat you? If you do, then your inner wolf is alive.
3. Wolves are not merciful
Wolves are fair creatures, and if you get on their bad sides, they never show mercy. This is what makes them dangerous. You are either their good side or get ripped to shreds. This is one of the things that fuel their legendary determination and patience when it comes to stalking their prey during a hunt. You are a true wolf if you neither give people second chances to mess up nor hesitate to dole out the punishment they deserve.
2. You love the dark of the night
The wolf loves to hunt in the shadows of the night, letting the darkness mask its presence. They are most active in the night, letting the darkness of the night become it’s most trusted ally. If you prefer the shadows of the night to the brightness of the day, then there must be a wolf lurking inside you.
1. The wolf is a loner
Yes, wolves hunt in packs, live in packs, and move in packs. However, it does not negate the fact that they are loners at their core. They can live on their own, carrying out the most daredevil explorations without the need for company. You know you are a true wolf in every way when you crave the solitude that comes with being alone.
If these characteristics above seem like you, then you truly are a wolf in every way.
