I'd like to know more about charisma. Some ability to influence people is essential to success, otherwise no one will ever do anything you ask of them.
A relative of mine has an unbelievable influence over people, mostly women. Even when he was a child I remember watching women in the family gather around to talk to him at length. I listened in once and he was talking a bunch of nonsense...he was never a very bright kid. But they gave him their attention as if he was The Beatles.
Now he's probably 19 or 20. I have witnessed an older woman approach him at an ice cream shop as if she couldn't resist talking to him, then walk out sharing her ice cream with him. His dad told me some people who sat next to the boy on an airline flight gushed how much they had enjoyed sitting with him on the plane, almost like they had had a religious experience!
With no prior job experience this relative was hired for a job that pays more than double what many of my friends earn.
It's like he gives off an energy that people are drawn too. Women especially are susceptible to his influence. From what I have observed, which is not much, it doesn't even look like he does anything to cause this to happen, or in terms of earning, or working for it. People approach him so they can give him something he wants!
I don't think he has a dark nature, but he has learned he's able to take advantage of people, and he does. He also has a short fuse and will fight other men quickly if provoked.
I'm very interest in how this takes place because I tend to have the opposite effect!
No, I'm not jealous at all.
