Idiap Speaker Series : 'Charisma: Measurement and outcomes' (Webcast now available).

Charisma has been devilishly difficult to measure; there has also been a dearth of studies estimating the causal impact of charisma on outcomes. In this seminar I will use a new definition of charisma to demonstrate how it can be manipulated, and will also show the economic impact of charisma on worker productivity. Moreover, I will discuss how charisma can be coded from archival data, and demonstrate its utility for predicting a range of outcomes including winning the U.S. presidential election, the amount of views on TED talks, and retweets of tweets.
