A few years ago I picked up the book "The Charisma Myth" by Olivia Fox Cabane and thought that it would be the solution to all of my life's social problems. It wasn't. I'm not going to delve deeply into the details, but somewhere I still fall short. People aren't rushing towards me asking me to come and hang out with them on a Friday night, nor does anyone seem to love helping me when I'm stuck on an assignment. I just don't have the social magnetism that the book promises. I'm looking for some movies to show top quality charisma in action. That way I can see what they do and I don't. Tom Cruise seems to have the magic, but other actors I'm not all that familiar with.
