Today lets talk about this particular word called charisma. Do you know what does this word means? For those who don't, here's a short definition of the word which sounds like

"a rare trait found in certain human personalities usually including extreme charm and a 'magnetic' quality of personality and/or appearance along with innate and powerfully sophisticated personal communicability and persuasiveness"

Hard to understand? put it simple based on my understanding, its a skill that can "bomoh" or "charm" others either by physical or emotionally". They also say that this skill is very essential to develop good PR and is an effective way of communication.

I have met many people that can be very convincing and persuasive out there. Most of them are from sales, multi level marketing and entertainment industry. One thing that i notice when i interact with them is their confidence level is always at its peak. The substance which they deliver can be lame or non logical, but they have method of twisting the story till they seem correct.

Some research say that charisma is a trait that is natural while others claim that this skill can be learned through life. Well for those who have the skill naturally, of course it will be an advantage. but those who don't,learning it will bring future benefits without a doubt.

However, in my case, i am not that charismatic but i try not to let those who have this skill con or persuade me.hmm..although there are many times that i almost got brain washed by them, but no worries, my experience will grow with time and will only make me stronger. To summarize, this skill is very important because no matter what it is be it in work, social or even relationship communication takes place and CHARISMA pawns..

Will be doing more research on this.
