Can charisma be taught?


“Charm hacker” Olivia FoxCabane claims she can make anyone more likable--for a price. But can charisma really be taught?

Superficially, yes. But introversion, in my experience, is an innate set of preferences that never really goes away. 

I'm an introvert by nature. I know how to "turn myself on" when I need be more extroverted for a specific purpose. (I used to work in sales, after all.) But that ability doesn't change my preferences

I still prefer an evening with a book to a party--even though I can attend parties when I have to.
