What is Charisma

What is Charisma?Bruno Martins & Fabricio Astelo

Charisma as a personal quality is often surrounded by a certain aura of mystery. People dont really know what it is or know what to explain it. They just know that some people have it and others dont. So the first step is to really understand what is charisma.

And to keep things clear, Im not going to talk about this in a sociological way quoting Max Weber (Max veber), the charismatic authority, among other more scientific descriptions. The goal here is to think and define charisma in a way that can be useful for you and me, the everyday man who wants to become more magnetic. So if youre writing about charismatic authority for your sociology class, its better if you search elsewhere.


A spiritual power or personal quality that gives an individual influence or authority over large numbers of people.

A rare personal quality attributed to leaders who arouse fervent popular devotion and enthusiasm.

A personal attractiveness or interestingness that enables you to influence others.

Extraordinary power and appeal of personality; natural ability to inspire a large following.

Here are just a few definitions of charisma from online sources:

A spiritual power or personal quality that gives an individual influence or authority over large numbers of people.A rare personal quality attributed to leaders who arouse fervent popular devotion and enthusiasm.A personal attractiveness or interestingness that enables you to influence others.Extraordinary power and appeal of personality; natural ability to inspire a large following.

A power, a personal quality or a natural ability, this is the dictionary charisma definition. You can recognize those who have it, but you cant say exactly what it is. Just that its a rare personal quality of appeal of personality.


If you ask 100 psychologists, youll get 100 different answersIn short, most of all, if you ask 100 psychologists, psychiatrics, academics or sociologists, the charisma definition will always be different. Itll always be dependent on the background of the person giving it. A psychologist will most likely give a different definition of a sociologist. Maybe some will deny thespiritual qualityorextraordinary powerbecause they dont believe in that. And thats ok, thats their belief. The fact that no one can deny, is that there is an unexplained quality that, in certain people, its viewed as charisma.


Its not a physical quality, its a PERSONAL quality

Some people say charisma its almost like a physical quality, like the height or eye color. In the sense that we need to be born with it. We disagree. We consider it a personal quality or a spiritual quality, and as such it can be developed. Just think about it, a thief can become honest, and a honest man can become a thief. There are also many cases of people who were never spiritual before, yet they developed their own spiritual qualities later in life though their own practices of spiritual disciplines like yoga, tai chi and similar teachings.

So we consider charisma among this category. Since its a personal quality and a spiritual quality, it can be developed with the right intention, the right effort and the right tools.


You can only see it when youre around othersAnother fact about charisma is that it doesnt exist by itself. Unlike physical traits, charisma only happens when you are with others. In other words, although its something inherent to you, you cant tell if you have it when youre isolated. its not like you can go on a spiritual retretat to develop charisma, you need to stay grounded in society, because only in the interactions of your daily life will you know that youre being successful or not. Ive had a few people that once they start develop charisma with our courses and techniques and notice the energetic nature of it, asked me if they should spend more time doing exercises at home. The answer is always the same, theres always some exercises to do at home, but above all, everything must be tested and practiced in your daily life with the interactions with your coworkers, friends, family and strangers. Charisma or personal magnetism must be developed with others. 5

Everyone had Charismatic moments!

In Charisma School, we tend to use the term more related to Personal Magnetism. Exactly the way those few online dictionary definitions mentioned. This perfectly describes our framework. We believe its a personal quality, a spiritual quality, a personal attractiveness that attracts others to you. So we develop our own internal states in a way to become magnetic. Im pretty sure that even if you dont consider yourself charismatic, you can think of a time where you were in a magnetic or charismatic state, and as such, people were drawn to you. In can be a particular situation, and right afterwards you lost that charisma feeling, but you had it for a moment or event. Or at least most people, even if they arent charismatic, had such an event or moment happening to them.

This proves that everyone can have a charismatic state. Now its just a matter of increasing the time length and being able to sum it up at will.


But you can unleash you Natural CharismaNow you can ask me, is there a technique that can sum up this charismatic state? And Ill tell you: yes there is. In fact, theres much more than one. I share a few on the CS Personal Magnetism course. And still they are much diferente and more efficient than the usual tips on body language, or smiling more, or being nice to people. We go to the subtle energetic flow. But these are only good in the contexto of the course, if youre doing outside of it, youre merely summing up the state without knowing why.

Sol in CS we take the high road. Not just give you a few techniques or tips to get you in the state. Our mission in this school is tohelp you unleash your natural charismawhich is buried under layers of negative personality traits, years of sabotaging your own inner power, unconscious and energetic blocks, and inefficient relationships with others and yourself. So instead of merely developing a charismatic state, we develop a charismatic and magnetic personality. Its more work I know... But how good will it feel when youre simply a charismatic person and can naturally attract people around you? No techniques, no methods, just simply being charismatic and magnetic. 7
