IQ ranking methodology
In genius studies, IQ ranking methodology (CR:24) (LH:15) (TL:39) refers to the methodology via which geniuses are ranked, which amounts to a combination of the so-called "historiometric analysis" method (Cox, 1926), wherein IQs of historical figures are calculated based on level of work accomplished per decade of existence, from which a combined retrospect overall IQ is assessed; a meta-analysis of all previously calculated, ranked, and or guesstimated IQs of geniuses (see: chronology); a summation of about 50+ genius ranking reference lists and scales; the "Platt method" (Platt, 1962); the "genius recognizes genius" method; among other factors.
The following are related quotes:
- “Lestrade to be let loose on such a study [as the ranking of geniuses] is exactly as pathetic as for a subnormal waitress in the IQ of 90 range to try to measure the intellectual differences in college students.”
