    But I digress.. you're asking about charisma itself now, so.. carry on.
    hmmm....I guess its possible, but is being aggressive and forceful a form of charisma?

    Type-indipendent, in my experience.

    It may not have to do with the functions, but it definitlely has something to do with EP or EJ.

    From my experience it's not Te or Fe, seeing as how I have very little of both. Charisma has nothing to do with actually being a capable leader and I'm a good example seeing as, for all the "fun" people had, I'm always behind schedule or don't get much work done when charged with leading a group.

    I think if anyone were to call me charismatic, Fi would be the function most responsible for that. Ironically, it's the distate for authority that people seem to admire most in me. It's the "doing what I want to do no matter what others say" and also the ability to empathize in most situations, when there is a problem (people like me but they also know I'm kinda lenient - and this is why I'm a lousy leader;charismatic, maybe, but not very successful).

    Ne really helps too but Fi is most present in the most serious situations and gets more admiration, I think.

    anyone, regardless of type, can be a leader. anyone, regardless of type, can be charismatic.

    I don't recognize function usage enough in others to know but I'd say the most charismatic people that I've seen were ENFPs and ENFJs.

    and...i don't know a whole lot of people's types.
