Prior post on Chiron and charisma – You Can’t Buy Charisma
I’m thinking about charisma because my husband and I watch TV together and we see things so differently. Our Mercuries oppose (100 + posts on Aries vs Libra) so it’s no surprise but it fascinates me, that things that are critically important to me are not even a consideration to him. As an example, we’re watching all these crime solving shows on Netflix lately. I enjoy some of them but quickly lose interest in the stories when they are poorly told by people who lack charisma.
The animated Italian kid talking with heartfelt candor about his girlfriend who had been murdered, engaged me. The person who is generic and predictable did not. I wind up sitting through the latter stories wondering why I am sitting through the stories at all.
In contrast, my husband doesn’t notice anything on this level, at all. He just doesn’t see why charisma is important in this context.
Without charisma, a person does not inspire me to care about their loved one. It’s a bunch of dry facts about a horrible thing and I just want to get away. I realize this is probably not pc to say, but it’s my reaction. Likewise when the cops on these programs lack energy or brains, an an appealing way of communicating, I am just bored out of my mind.
Because my husband could care less, I’ve concluded that I place a high value on charisma. Perhaps it’s too high, I don’t know.
How important is charisma to you? Are you more like my husband or me?
Also, how do you think you got to be the way you are?
