The “it factor” can apply not only to celebrities but also to politicians, to people seeking work, or to religious leaders. Mother Theresa eschewed the fashionable world and lived a life of privation to serve others. Her “it factor” had everything to do with the spiritual way in which she lived her life. People would wait for days for an audience with her.
So let me see if I have this right. You have the “it factor” if you:
- have an indefinable something that makes you special
- are a celebrity that radiates charisma and charm
- live your life in a spiritual way
- have people waiting for days for an audience with you
