    What makes one person invisible and another person not?

    By invisibility, imagine the person who can stand in the middle of the room screaming and not be noticed.... yet another one barely enters and everybody knows immediately.

    Something you'r born with? It just comes naturally to some people to stand up and be noticed without doing anything.. others can work at it forever, but if it doesnt come naturally to you... it often wont stay hmm

    Could it be body language. Anything to do with aura! A combination of both, I suppose.

    I was once INVISIBLE.  I decided to change.  I observed people who had the "magic" and compared what they HAD to what I DIDN'T have.  Then slowly i worked on being less shy. or Learning to tell a joke or tell a story.  I decided to be less afraid in groups of what others think of me.  I decided to be less negative and more upbeat.  Slowly, I learned to be a little bit silly when necessary.. or serious sometimes... rather than serious all the time.  I taught myself to not-be-afraid to talk about myself and admit weaknesses and to laugh about it.  Now i am planning on learning to play a musical instrument!   I might not get to be Mister Wonderfull at social gatherings, but i am no longer the unhappy wallflower i used to be.  I had a lot of fun changing my personality too! Life is too short to go around being invisible unless you LIKE that sort of thing.  So many things could be affecting the situation. The clothes we wear.  The smile we have or dont have... the words we use... and many many other things.  Only you know yourself well enough to figure it out.  Make a list and start changing things little by little.  Anyone can do those things!

    I don't really think - unless everybody else is also screaming in that room - someone standing in the middle of the room and screaming is invisible.  Usually, people have noticed that screamer, but have decided to ignore him for one reason or another.  If you think in terms of "screaming" being any number of the things people do in order to stand out and be noticed, the act of doing that kind of thing just shows the person is yet one more of the "zillions" of other people doing something in the hopes of getting noticed.

    In a world full of people who want/need attention, the person who is just himself and who isn't trying to get attention is often the different one in a group, so sometimes that may account for the fact that people who aren't trying to get noticed often do.

    Other than that, I think what makes some people get noticed is that they're unique (stand out), but also that they have something particularly charismatic or appealing about their overall appearance and demeanor that appeals to others on a level that they may not even really be aware of.

    In a world full of so many "screamers", the person who isn't screaming is going to be noticed.  Also, though, a lot of people may wonder why it is that one person isn't "screaming" the way "everybody else" is.  That, alone, may make the person just a little more interesting; but there's also a good chance people will find that person appealing - just because he's unique enough, and "himself" enough, not to be "screaming".  So, even if being "interesting" isn't the appeal, sometimes being "refreshingly different" is.

    OR, another possibility may be that the person is so strikingly good looking, or has some strikingly appealing feature (like really beautiful hair), people can't help but notice.

    Either way, the person who gets noticed is usually both different from most other people and appealing in one or more ways.

    Personality. Many people light up a room as soon as they enter, whilst others rarely give a glimmer.  Don't be to quick to dismiss the one with the less light as they could easily be the nicer one.

    A magic cape like  in Harry Potter. Just kidding. People make themselves invisible. Don't try to be with people that don't have common interests. You'll have nothing to add.
    Do things, be vocal and you will be seen. Just watching life go by without participating in it will guarantee your invisibility
