writing a profile piece that does not feature some
degree of puffery is not easy, and profiling someone like
Holmes has to be more complicated than most. She hasn’t
talked to the media since 2016, and she is a highly
persuasive character who managed to make many powerful
people bend to her will.

As former Theranos employee and whistleblower Tyler Shultz
told CBS News early last year of Holmes, “Elizabeth is a
very, very charismatic person. When she speaks to you, she
makes you feel like you are the most important person in her
world in that moment. She almost has this reality distortion
field around her that people can just get sucked
into.” -- CrechUnch

thoughts on how this works?

accepting that part of it may be she's simply a sociopath;
perhaps it's not a skill you can simply pick up -- but that
doesn't answer the question of how it works, thanks
