What Is Charisma?

What Is Charisma?

Charisma is a skill that can be learned by anyone! It has nothing to do with how introverted or extroverted you are.

Charisma = warmth + competence

It is essential to have both of these qualities because without warmth people won't like you and without competence people won't take you seriously. They should feel like they can trust and rely on you.

Easy Tips To Enhance Charisma #1

  • Show your hands, especially the inside of your hands. It will make you more trustworthy and shows that you have nothing to hide.
  • On zoom calls, don't sit too close to the camera as you might appear as too upfront. Instead sit at a distance of 1 to 1.5ft away. In person you shouldn't be standing too close to them.
  • Lean in and raise your eyebrows when something is interesting.
  • Don't end your sentence as a question on a high note. Don't uptalk. You can prevent this by speaking on the out-breath as it will make your voice deeper and hence sound more confident.
  • Don't fake smile. People will notice it.

  • Nod three times. The other person will talk 70% more because nodding is a sign of warmth.
  • Tilt your head.
  • Add vocalisations such as "uhm, mhm, aha, oh". They also show warmth.
  • Use warm words that you want the other person to feel. "I can't wait to collaborate with you" will make the other person more collaborative. "I'd love to hug you right now" will make them feel the warmth of a hug on their skin.
  • Completely front the other person. Angle everything towards the person. The toes show in the direction someone wants to go, so they should be pointing to your partner.
  • Mirror their behaviour.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
