It seems as if you're looking for the extreme limits of charisma. I don't think your definition and the article's definition are different except in scale.
The article focuses on the middle ground, but mentions the extremes (i.e. famously charismatic people). I would say it's important to be aware of that distinction because the extreme edge of charisma is unattainable for most people (if everyone were like that it would become the norm), so if someone wants to become charismatic they'd be more likely to see results if they focused on the kind of charisma that is more common. And then push for more
And how? *shrug* I'm too self-conscious to be considered charismatic...
