Art of Manliness Podcast #72: The Charisma Myth with Olivia Fox

In this week’s episode I talk to charisma expert Olivia Fox Cabane about her book The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal MagnetismFor those who have been following the site for awhile, you may remember our series on improving your charisma based on The Charisma MythIf you enjoyed that series, you’re definitely going to enjoy today’s podcast.

Show Highlights:

  • Why the idea that you’re either born charismatic or not is a myth
  • How increasing your charisma makes you look taller, smarter, and richer than you really are
  • The three pillars of a charismatic personality
  • The pitfalls of charisma
  • Why you should mimic a gorilla to be more charismatic
  • Why you shouldn’t worry about being “inauthentic” as you strive to improve your charisma
  • And much more!


I definitely recommend picking up a copy of The Charisma Myth. It was one of the best books I read last year. It’s backed by legitimate research and is filled with practical, actionable steps to help you become more charismatic.
