Course number : 19867   
« back to classes page

Mahatma Ghandi had it. So did Marilyn Monroe, Jim Jones, Winston Churchill and Rasputin. Personal charisma is a pattern of complex and refined social and emotional skills, which allow charismatic individuals to connect with others on a social and emotional level. We all know present-day examples of charisma. They are friends, family members, co-workers and often, political, religious leaders or celebrities. Charismatic individuals stand out in any group, attracting, influencing and inspiring others. We find ourselves naturally drawn like moths to their light. But what is charisma? Can one develop personal charisma as a character trait, or like eye color, is it something that’s predetermined? We’ll explore the psychology behind this thoroughly recognizable but little understood human characteristic.
