Charisma -- that's such a nice word, don't you think?
Yes the word makes it harder than necessary...
I have seen people who can completely own
a crowd. And some are charismatic (i guess?), but couldn't they just also be only
fantastic story tellers or speakers ?
The concept really puzzles me. Does Eckhard Tolle have charisma? I don't think you would even notice him in a subway or crowd. But then, according to my own definition above, he might just have the certain "it" in the eyes....
