The Challenge: Does the speed at which you think predict how appealing people will find you? Is charisma nothing more than a quick brain? Professor von Hippel, defend your research.
Von Hippel: We were expecting to see that fast thinkers were charismatic, and we did. I think we all sense that charismatic people tend to be quick on their feet. They say things that you find compelling but that you don’t expect. They come back with an entertaining answer or a surprising association, and you never quite know what will happen next.
Fouad Bendris’s insight:
Being quick on your feet may matter more than being smart or personable !
