Genius, maybe not - but he's incredibly driven and focused and knows how to make up for his shortcomings by finding the right people who specialize in the right areas. In interviews he seems dopey because he works his ass off, and he's probably got a lot on his plate that he's worried about. It's hard to be in the moment when you've got so much on your mind, and I can't imagine how much that guy has on his mind.

He won't be the next Tesla, but he's definitely a revolutionary.

He has been divorced from the same woman twice, so he ain't anywhere near as smart as people like to think.

He is smart enough to continually have enterprises (Tesla/SpaceX) at the front of people's awareness, and get them financially off the ground. Also, spend some time with engineers. They can be dopey as hell, and dumb as bricks on different topics.

I think the only people wanting to hype him are the types that love a cult of personality, and are moping that Jobs wasn't their savior. I personally haven't seen anyone posit he is some sort of genius, that required years, and advanced study to understand.

He's above average smart but not a genius.

He got a lot of plastic surgery that's why he's dopey

no. smart is like the people at unitednuclear.com. he didnt make AC induction motors, lithium battery charging IC's with voltage converters, or solar panels-- he just gave the people the same thing with a little more freedom.. take the powerwall for example: people can make that. electric cars have been made befor and better than his, i like the tango http://www.commutercars.com/

Somewhere around "Future Bond Villain" or "Wacky Billionaire with a House Full of Dangerous Prototypes" smart.
