Influence is the ability to cause others to act or think in ways that you desire.  Attractiveness is what gives you influence.  Attractiveness is the quality which makes it desirable and rewarding for others to communicate with, collaborate with, and be around you.   Convincing your neighbor to split the cost of painting the fence, getting the next promotion, and even getting that first date requires influence.  To influence others, you will need to be attractive.
