Most Charismatic People of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). more.

Whether or not you believe he was the Son of God, his teachings are some of the most inspiring in history. - PetSounds

He founded a religion by himself, inspiring others and impacting history and society greatly. His religion that he founded created millions of zealous believers that throughout the ages, have fought wars, brought peace, preached life, heralded death, all in his name. His importance and role in humanity's growth cannot be understated.

I can easily believe that Jesus Christ is at the top of this list, I mean, He did create all of us. Whether or not you choose to believe it, it is still true. His teachings have lasted since the dawn of time (aka the Seven Days of Creation), and are still huge in the world today. Oh, and please don't give this a thumbs down, after all, it is only an opinion. A pretty valid opinion at that. And, of course, this did take me a solid five minutes to type. And lastly-eh what the heck? I don't even have an account, do what is there to lose? Goodbye everyone! I'll remember you al in therapy!

I am not a devout Christian, but I still believe that Jesus Christ is a savior for the humankind.

2 Winston Churchill Winston Churchill Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.

I really admire this gentleman. His "Keep Calm And Carry On" speeches helped to lift a whole nations spirits through one of the toughest times in British history. He also had a fantastic sense of humour! - Britgirl

I have a book of his quotes. They never fail to inspire and amuse. - PetSounds

Without him the nazis would have taken over the world

3 Richard Feynman Richard Feynman Richard Phillips Feynman was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the more.

Wow, I was not expecting Richard Feynman to be this high on ANY list on TheTopTens. Anyway, I'm glad that he has at least some notability here and do agree that he was quite charismatic.

Feynman had very charismatic ways of explaining physics. I would have loved to have seen it in action. - PositronWildhawk

4 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

I don't agree with everything he said and did, but he stood up for his beliefs. I admire him for that. - PetSounds

A real master of words and attitude.

Touched the hearts of millions, everyone knows his name, Jesus comes a close second but John L is more contemporary

5 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was an Austrian politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure more.

Despite his ethics and, like, really poor opinions in general, uniting a broken nation back into another war and successfully conquering most of Europe takes some almighty charisma skills. He should really be #1.

Adolf Hitler was a true master of manipulation. Always "a man of the people," he turned his allies into his subordinates and rose through the ranks of Germany much faster than any politician of his time. His charisma seduced his entire country into to believe that starting a genocide against the innocent Jews was for the better good. Personally, I think every charismatic dictator deserves to be on this list.

The portrayal of Adolf Hitler by the Western media makes anything to do with him very biased in the Western World. He deserves to be much higher on this list

A man who has the charisma to not only lead a country out of poverty, but to do so as a foreigner on a nationalist ticket, and then furthermore, convince those people to support and believe in evil, is truly a powerful figure

A man that had everything and lost it.

Hilarious that this man is rated lower than most of the people on top of the list.

This man was exploding with electricty anywhere he was, any time
