Cox-Buzan-Platt IQ

In genius studies, Cox-Buzan-Platt IQ refers to "mean IQ" of geniuses common to the 1926 Cox IQ ranking (300 geniuses), the 1962 Platt IQ ranking (12 geniuses), and the 1994 Buzan IQ ranking (100 geniuses), which only amounts to two, namely: Newton (IQCPB:192) and Darwin (IQCPB:173); these two IQ numbers, to a good approximation, might be the only two unbiased sober rankings in the entire top 1000 genius rankings.

Overview
The following are the mean IQs of the geniuses common to the Cox IQs (1926), Platt IQs (1962), and Buzan IQs (1994):

Here, of curiosity, we see only two geniuses, namely Newton (mean IQ:192) and Darwin (mean IQ:173), common to the 300 Cox geniuses, the 11 Platt geniuses, and the 100 Buzan geniuses, and two geniuses, namely Archimedes (mean IQ:190) and Einstein (mean IQ:195) (note: used "185" as Platt measurement for Einstein's IQ), common to two.

A second pattern noticeable, is that Darwin's IQ seems to "grown" by about 5 points every 23 years, on average, baring prolonged discussions of the methods of each estimation method; meaning, in some sense, that the intellectual influence of his ideas are impacting more, in retrospect.

Here, we see the rule, in respect to IQ and genius rankings, that "time begets discernment".
