AdamLover, most definitions of charisma i found are the same as what you say- positive and interesting personality. The question is, are the charismatic qualities related to the unique ‘presence’ (can’t find a better word) which is described in the original post. In my opinion a person may be really charismatic (positive, energetic, social skills, etc) and still lacking such a ‘presence’. So it must be something else. Any ideas?
