by X-factor, do you mean someone that others want to connect with sexually/romantically?
it's very interesting ... because i would consider myself to be a pretty charismatic person -- lots of really lovely friends (real friends!), nice acquaintence, have been told i have great stage presence, etc. but in the past i have found it difficult to connect with people on a romantic/sexual level. i get a lot of "you are too much woman for me" etc. etc.
so, i dunno if personal charisma is directly connected to x-factor. it seems like most men have either wanted to be my friend, or have sex with me, but very few have been up for the (perceived) challenge of actually dating me. it's like they think they are going to drown in the madge or something.
seems kinda silly to me ... but if someone tells me that they arent up to the challenge (that challenge being me), then i pretty much have to accept that as the truth and just keep looking...
