    I will say one who is praised by the crowd.

    The person who praises the crowd is an "extoller" or eulogizer, but not a genius.

    My opinion.

    My apologies for bringing politics into it Periamma. I will call both of them genius capable of becoming the President of the United States.

    I remember President Barrack Obama's campaign speeches which brought a lot of crowd clapping consistently at his excellent oratory skills when he remained humble (people still call him genius) whereas President Donald Trump clapped at the crowd and said what they would like to hear including things like, "Punch him on his face and I will take care of your legal fees" and continued to praise himself (some people call him genius even today). Both were elected President.

    @kkrish Kamala your reply related to People with Extradinary skill in one or more field.
    @Viswamitra you brought out the Political Genius
    My thought goes behind great men who study the People ,find the Person in the crowd and praise them for their good deeds.i don't know whether my point is right or wrong
    (oru Thani manithan avan thiramaikaaga Perumpaanmaiyoraal Paaraattap padugiraan.
    Innoru manithan Perum koothil nirkum oruvanin thiramaiyai arinthu avanai veli ulagathukku kaatti Paaraattugiran).This is what i want to say One who find a brilliant man from a big crowd and show his brilliancy to outer world is also a Genius.
