Or they don't even know what a Venn diagram is.
venn diagrams aren't always proportional. They just visually enumerate logical relations (intersections, etc)
I believe that's why the "painfully honest" qualification is there.

it can be both ...
business graphics use mathematical designs (topologies, sets, etc.) only to amaze, not to communicate
