Is Charisma a Source of Social Power?
Jason
What about personal power or call it charismatic power? Certain people can be powerful through their charisma, energy, stamina, strength or verbal skills on top of the mentioned sources of power.
 

 
Additional base of social power?
Sean
When I took his class at UCLA, we students discussed with Professor Raven another possible base of interpersonal influence and social power: CHARISMA. Is charisma another base of social power, or is it already represented by one or more of the above-mentioned bases of social power and interpersonal influence, such as referent, informational, expert, synergistic, or others bases? It seems to capture some of these, but does it capture something else as well, such as the ability to inspire, to have others participate in a cause/movement, to influence others to reframe their social, economic, and political realities, to inspire hope, etc.?
