Do you know any real "Visionary"?

From Wiki: Wikipedia reference-linkVisionary

"... one who purportedly experiences a vision or apparition connected to the supernatural. At times this involves seeing into the future. The visionary state is achieved via meditation, drugs, lucid dreams, day dreams, or art. One example is Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century artist/visionary and Catholic saint.[1] Other visionaries in religion are Mohammed (who had a vision of and communed with the Angel Gabriel), St. Bernadette (who had a vision of and communed with the Blessed Virgin), and Joseph Smith (who had a vision of and communed with the Angel Moroni)."

1,529 people have the word "visionary" on their Linkedin profiles.

Sometimes personal marketing goes a bit too far, a bit too funny.

Those losers in Denmark are for sure from Christiania.

Re: Do you know any real "Visionary"?

When I first read the title of this post, I thought "visionary" meant someone like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, or Jeff Bezos.

Re: Do you know any real "Visionary"?

240 people in Linkedin with the job title: "Chief Visionary Officer" (CVO)
Would that be a visionary in chief with mini-me-visionaries reporting?

I can imagine some other titles that could be appealing:
"Supreme Enlightened Leader"
"Wa*k Master of the Heavens"
