The book Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism

In her book, author Olivia Fox describes three components of Charisma (Power, Presence, and Warmth).

She gives a series of examples of charismatic leaders such as Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, and Steve Jobs and describes how the blend of these 3 things makes them charismatic.

For Example, It’s a common knowledge that Steve Jobs was not someone famous for his warmth. Most of his staff used to dread him and avoid meeting him as much as possible. But people would still find him highly charismatic.

Yes, Jobs lacked warmth but he was full of presence and power. And he learned at a young age how to use it for his advantage.

That’s the most important part. Different people drive Charisma for different things and they can be classified as follows :

  1. Focus Charisma
    A deep listener, someone who just not listen with ears but there the whole body is directed towards you when you say something. And their eyes tell that they are listening to you. Oprah is the perfect example of it.
  2. Visionary Charisma
    Someone who has so much belief on his ideas and able to describe in such a manner that you are able to visualize it and come to believe on it. Steve Jobs is the perfect example of it.
  3. Kindness Charisma
    Warmth is the key part of it. These people exude charisma and as soon as you meet them you are able to feel an emotional connection with them. Usually, religious or social leaders comes in this category.
  4. Authority Charisma
    Someone who has high power and status. This is the earliest form of Charisma. From the early days, people with high status generally had a more authoritative and firm attitude. And that may be the reason people find authoritative people more Charismatic.

In short, anyone can be charismatic and one doesn’t need to transform their personalities. Being Charismatic is more to do with discovering yourself rather than developing yourself.
