Gary Vaynerchuk For President? [Charisma Machine]

Gonna make this a quick one, dude.

I was recently watching a lecture by the great
investor/entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck, and noticed something…

He is super Charismatic for this one compelling,
and often overlooked, reason… his ability to connect with the audience.

And once you see how he does it, you’ll immediately
see how you can implement this into your own social life…

When Gary V talks, he changes his body language like so…

One second he is leaning back into his chair, and
making himself comfortable.

This communicates to the audience, “Listen, I am
comfortable. You can make yourself comfortable too. It’s ok.

And the next second, when he is about to make his point, he leans forward.

Also notice how almost the entire time he speaks,
his head is tilted down so that his eyes are closer to the audience.

This little eye trick is so powerful because, as the
saying goes…

“The Eyes Are The Window To The Soul.”

When his head is tilted slightly forward, and his eyes
are the closer to you, then you instantly feel like, “I can trust this person.”

If you have ever read Influence by Robert Cialdini,
then you know about the 7 triggers of human psychology.
[If not, then I highly recommend checking out that book].

Gary already has his “Authority” established within
the group because he is the person speaking at the front
of the classroom. However, on top of authority, he has 3 other
things going VERY well for him, which add to his overall Charisma:

1. He makes himself comfortable.

Most speakers get in front of their audience and stand.
Gary sits in a chair. Leans back. Puts his arm over the back of the chair.

This makes the audience feel comfortable in his
presence –> Charimsa, and Connection

2. He tilts his head forward when he talks, and
when making a point, he leans his entire body forward.

Leaning forward conveys to you “Listen up because
this is important.“… And when you throw in that little “eye trick”
he does –> Charisma, and Connection

3. He speaks freely.

If you go and watch this entire lecture, you’ll notice
that he is in an academic setting. A college lecture hall to be exact.

According to society, classrooms are supposed
to be professional settings. You are supposed to act “proper”
and “well-mannered” in those places.

However Gary V gets up there, sits down, and drops
the “F-bomb” so many times, the teacher was probably shitting himself.

In fact, in the first 11 minutes of this lecture alone,
he dropped the word “Fuck” 18 times, and “Shit” 4 times.

Talk about speaking freely…

What this does is it puts the extra emphasis on his
message, interrupts the pattern of what the students are
used to, and subtly inspires the class to be more “free” like
him. –> Charisma, Connection, AND Inspiration.

Now let’s look at an example of someone, who
for all intensive purposes is pretty Charismatic, yet he is
subtly breaking rapport with his audience because he does
the opposite of Gary’s “Eye Trick”

Barack Obama clearly already has “Authority” established with his audience…

However when he speaks, he has the tendency
to look down his nose, which takes his eyes further away
from you, and subtly breaks rapport.

Also notice how when someone talks down their nose,
they are also slightly lifting their chin up.

“Keeping your chin held high” is cool and all. However
when done in this sort of manner, it is a micro-expression
that can be used to convey “Confrontation.”

Doing this breaks rapport with some people, thus, it is a
polarizing thing to do – a Charismatic trait on it’s own…

However, this is a certain mannerism that even Obama himself can work on.

For someone who is as high status as the President,
breaking rapport by “looking down his nose” when talking,
is not helping his ability boost his rapport with the audience.

So what am I trying to get at here?…

Gary Vaynerchuk for President in 2016?

Haha, you can be the judge of that.

See ya later, dude.
