Hyperbole wrecks understanding.
Instead of assigning genius, visionary, peerless, or pioneering to folk lets dial down the rhetoric.
“Genius” is a high bar only measured by history. For example, buying an innovative company does not make one a genius per se.
“Visionary” is marketing.
“Peerless” means one who hasn’t been open to peer review.
“Pioneering” is someone repackaging what is known.
