Good article, although distant and retrospective psychiatric and disease diagnoses are often wrong. And, like those who call themselves a polymath, those who call themselves a genius are deluding themselves as those two appellations are best applied to someone by historians and outside observers. Do you think Einstein called himself a genius? True polymaths and geniuses do not proclaim it -they just do their thing, as acclaim is less important to them than their output. No harm, no foul, just an observation.
