Systematization of non-verbal traits of a public speaker's charismatic personality
Humanities science current issues
This paper provides rationale for the terminological minimum of the currently functioning scientific notions the use of which is expedient to denote non-verbal traits of a public speaker's charismatic personality in describing results of an interdisciplinary research into multiple phenomena of the personality's communicative behaviour. By analyzing currently functioning in humanities (i.e. sociology, psychology, and linguistics) multiple interdisciplinary traits of a public speaker's
... personality, the author created the matrix of their alternative variants. The advanced matrix includes only the notions abstracted from the scientific filed in which they are functioning, as well as those traits of a public speaker's charismatic personality which are perceived by an audience. The matrix does not include some of the ill-defined traits which are synonymous with or secondary to, or consequential of the included more abstract notions (e.g., consideration as a precondition for empathy, reasonableness as a direct consequence of intelligence, or decisiveness as a consequence of persistence, etc.). linguistic, psychological, sociocultural, and physiological characteristics (e.g., eye-contact, posture, gestures, voice, and intonation, etc.) and their respective complexes, such notions as intelligence, selfconfidence, persistence, ability to inspire, sociability, dominance, narcissism, and vision. These characteristics are relevant to the charismatic traits of a speakers' personality since they have been historically conventionalized. It is shown that to present a comprehensive scientific description of the results on a multidisciplinary research into multiple phenomena of a public speaker's charismatic personality's non-verbal behaviour it is reasonable to use among other The author also outlines prospects of a further analysis of the linguistic, psychological, sociocultural, and physiological traits of a speaker.
