I've been pondering charisma lately. There appear to be so many differing views on what makes a charismatic person. Even within this forum, without most of us not really knowing one another in person, some people just come off as charismatic. They seem likeable perhaps by the way they write or interact with others. I don't feel it has to do a lot with the number of posts, as I've watched many people post a lot as well as interact a lot and not thought they have a high level of charisma. Some people hardly post at all but seem to have that "presence". I'm happy to admit I have as much charisma as a empty wall. Hence the questions I suppose What do you think makes up a charismatic person, and how charismatic do you think you are on a scale from 1 - 10?
