Are you talking about the universal idea of charisma and the ability to magnetize others to them? The people with that x-factor thing called charisma often seem to be agreeable, at least. Charismatic people have to be somehow unique outside of their ability to draw people to them. I wouldn't know how to describe charismatic people past that.
Or are you asking about people's preferences in others? In that case, I like people who are cool. =/ I don't know what to say.
Still using a needle to break apart a grain of sand.
I would say that would be true more for me in the case of the opposite gender. When it comes to guys however it's most certainly not a requirement. I like people who have interesting thoughts, are quick, flexible, curious, and have a knack for phrasing things and viewing things in another way. I also like people who are up for a little competition and argument, I don't like the compliant types much. People who aren't afraid to challenge and don't withhold their comments and can support them at will.
My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
