What Is It?

What Is It?

Charisma is defined as "compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others."

But if something can inspire devotion, that doesn't mean it will.

So charisma is "compelling attractiveness or charm."

Charisma is the ability to make people happy, based on your appearance and/or conduct.

How It Works

How It Works

You'd probably be more effortlessly charismatic around your friends than you would be around the President of Mexico.

You know how to make your friends happy. They already find you and your company enjoyable. You don't know the President. You don't know how to make them happy. To the President, you are no more or less enjoyable than any other face in the crowd.

Charisma depends on the person and situation. If you feel like you're not being charismatic, you simply haven't figured out how to make the people around you happy in an effective way.

Types

Types

People tend to disagree on the types of charisma that exist. I've found there to be 3.

  • Competent
  • Relatable
  • Enticing

Competent

Competent

Those who know what they're doing. Someone who is good at their job or has knowledge on a topic you find interesting or important.

Build competence by familiarizing yourself with things related to your job and community. Practice reading comprehension and pick up a philosophy book.

The easiest way to appear competent is to listen more than you talk.

Relatable

Relatable

Those who are similar to others. Someone you can find common ground with.

We both wear glasses, we both work in retail, we both like coffee. There isn't a single person alive or dead who has absolutely nothing in common with you. At the very least, you both have flesh and bone.

Pay more attention to those in your life. What do you have in common with the bus driver? Your mother? What makes the strangers around you less strange?

Enticing

Enticing

Those who have things others desire. Someone who represents or offers a more interesting life.

The enticing type is the one we initially think of when we think of charisma. The wealthy, good-looking, and famous are examples of this. They live the lives we want. They have the things we want. They are the people we want to be.

Figure out what you want in life, and then the steps to get it. When you have the life you want, others will see that and want it as well.
