Cox-Platt-Platt IQs

The following are is 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: 188) 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..

Quotes

“There is an apocryphal story physicists tell [see:See alsofly bicycle problem] about the late John Neumann—probably a 180—that shows the difference they feel between such really high-speed minds and those of ordinary brilliance. In mental ability, an adult chimpanzee can solve mechanical problems about as well as a six-year-old child. This ape might be given an IQ of about 40. Amoronwould be around 70, an average adult 100, a PhD 140, an Einstein 180 or better. The hardest problems can be solved only by men of the greatest ability, and brilliant men are few. The second hard fact about the IQ scale is that there are not very many brilliant men at the top of it. At the 190 level, which might describe Archimedes, Newton, and Gauss, we have been seeing about one every five hundred years. A Newton at the 190 level occurs once in 500 years. At the 180 level of Darwin, Freud,Shaw, Bertrand Russell, Percy Bridgman, Linus Pauling, there might be a dozen living Americans. There are some 300 at 170 in the US, 5,000 at 160, about 100,000 at 150, and one million at 140.”— John Platt (162), “The Coming Generation of Genius: an ‘Explosion’ of 180-IQ boys. And Girls?” [1]
