“Charismatic leadership theory (p.392) is a leadership theory that states that followers make attributions of heroic or extraordinary leadership abilities when they observe certain behaviors. Individuals are born with traits that make them charismatic. In fact, studies of identical twins found they score similarly on charismatic leadership measures, even if they were raised in different households and never met. Personality is also related to charismatic leadership; charismatic leaders are likely to be extra-verted, self-confident, and achievement oriented. For example, I scored 18 on management of attention, trust, self, and risk. On the other hand, I scored 17 for management of meaning and feelings.”
