Just wondering if anyone else had been having the same irritating problem as me.

We have a really charismatic and smart player in our group and, for better or worse, people tend to defer to him when making plans (that and he is usually right). However, he does not always play the most charismatic or smart character. This is compounded when other PCs take feats such as Leadership; you would expect such characters to have a more forceful personality with the expectation of having their suggestions/orders followed.

The question is how should a DM who does not award ad hoc XP bonuses/penalties deal with such a PC without stomping around saying 'you would listen to player X and trust them more than player Y'?
