    Default What is Charm??

    I have noticed a lot of people using the word CHARM, when it comes to NFs (especially ENFPs). Words like:

    - "She is Charming"
    - "He will charm you into changing your mind"
    - "Natural Charm"

    So it got me thinking, what exactly is this CHARM??
    Is it flirting? Is it certain attributes or attitude? Is it same as Charisma?
    How does Charm play out in the real life situation?
    Any examples would be appreciated.

    Charm is a way of getting the answer yes without asking a clear question. ~Albert Camus

    Charm is the quality in others that makes us more satisfied with ourselves. ~Henri-Frederic Amiel

    Charm is a warmness--a lot like charisma--that people give off when they are with other people. Sometimes it feels sleazy and fake when people "turn on the charm" but it's different when it's genuine. Then it feels like someone definitely cares about you and is present with just you in that second they are talking with you. It's a wholesome feeling!

    Charm... it is a certain playfulness... and a lack of judgment... an expressed interest in others... someone with charm appears to enjoy themself because of your presence.

    That's what people have when they are not good looking...
    Sorry, I couldn't help to write this definition of a friend, even though, I don't really agree with.

    Good definitions ladies and or gents
    Very true to the genuine article

    Now that you have your question answered,
    i would hope that you would only allow a relevant spin off,
    and not some discussion about Cheetos and how much they give you gas
    it happens quite a lot on these forums

    Get somebody with charm, and take a personal inventory.

    Then do the same with me.

    Whatever shows up on his list and not mine is charm.
