Charisma and the ways of its developing

People often talk about charisma however when the discussion becomes more detailed, the
dialogue gets less active, even scientists waver about this phenomenon. The word “charisma” is
derived from the Greek language and means “favor freely given” or “gift of grace” and, according to
the ancients, was understood as the ability to attract and keep the attention of other people.
Ancient Greeks applied charisma to their gods; for example, attributing charm, beauty, nature,
human creativity or fertility to goddesses who they called Charites. Nowadays, the word “charisma”
reflects not so much the ability to attract with external beauty, but the aspects of inner attraction.
Let’s figure out how it works!

In psychology, charisma is generally understood as a person’s use of emotional and mental
abilities to capably and effectively influence others. In this case the simple mathematical formula
whereby the total is the addition of two or more numbers does not work given that charisma is
more of a qualitative result than a quantitative sum of character traits.

The core of charisma is based on communicative abilities. Successful communicators know what
to talk about, how to cheer and how to impress, remembering that communication is a two-way
process and that what they hear is often more important than what they say. Charismatic people
are not narcissists, they are passionate and primarily focused on the interests of others.
The second quality of a charismatic person is their pliability, not fussy and torn, but confident and
calm. These people are not artificial, they are very natural. As a rule, they may be distinguished
with a straight back in that consciously or intuitively they reproduce the archetype of the masters of
life who always walked with their nose up-turned, shoulders straightened and feeling free.
Another special feature of charismatic people is their marginality, which implies an “outside of the
box” mentality. They do differ from accepted norms and habitual behavior, depending on the
community, era or country. Charismatic people respect customs, but, as a rule, do not follow them.
Finally, almost all charismatic people may be characterized by their positive thinking and optimism,
their emotional expressiveness and inspiration, all of which attract everywhere and everyone.
Psychologists have also pinpointed a certain sexual and mystical feature of charisma. While
charismatic people are not necessarily beautiful, they do possess a certain energy irrespective of
their occupation or income. Charismatic leaders can be present in a small group of friends and
among heads of state.

Charisma can be developed at anytime. To do this, try to ensure that people communicating with
you feel more confident and that their faith in themselves and optimism increases… Afterwards
these people will reach out to you. An excellent way to develop charisma is the language of your
body — a straight back demonstrating your confidence along with kind smiles and eye contact to
establish rapport. There are people who were born with a certain charisma, but this does not mean
that for others charisma may not be developed and this is exactly what I wish for you.
