The following lists were employed, in some sense or another, e.g. consulted or constructed, in the making of the top 2000 minds rankings The percentage (%) column shows the percent of the names on the list that were either already ranked in the top 2000 or were absorbed or subsumed into the top 2000 listing. The check mark Check mark (big).png indicates that all the names of that given list have been incorporated into the top 2000 rankings. To note, when the list was started, in 2011, the Cox 300 and the Buzan 100 were merged to make the first list, and thereby each of those 350+ Cox-Buzan names were "grandfathered in", so to say, by default (without question as to whether or not each name merited inclusion). The reference lists are order by influence and usage dominance: [N1]

Greatest African ethnicity geniuses (GAEG:#) 20+ Note: name changed from "greatest black geniuses" to "greatest African ethnicity geniuses" (7 May 66AE), amid the Akhenaten, an Egyptian (27.7 ° N) genius, migrate, and the view that the (GBG:1) for him didn't seem to fit right [?], as compared to other rankings, e.g. American genius, Italian genius, Greek genius, French genius, etc, e.g. there is no "greatest white geniuses" or "greatest yellow geniuses" in the equivalent sense? Part of the difficulty in naming this group, is that the tabulated ranking of this category, is meant to be a focused and ranked look at geniuses of recent "equatorial ethnicity", e.g. Marcus Garvey (1887-1940), an Afro-Jamacian (18.1° N) genius, Ayaan Ali (1969-), a Somali-born (5.15° N) American genius, Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), an African (8.78° S) American genius, etc. 2017

The top 20 geniuses, from the Cox 300 geniuses, based on their AI IQ ratings, i.e. age 1-16 mental ability.

In 1926, Lewis Terman, Catherine Cox, and Maud Merrill pioneered the method of ranking historical geniuses by their historically-documented accomplishments and known mental abilities by both age period based IQ rankings, e.g. AI IQ (age 1-16) (see: AI IQ Ratings and adjacent image), AII IQ (age 17-26), and by retrospect mean overall IQ of the genius in terms of their bulk accomplishments over their total years of existence.[7]

In 1962, John Platt, in his "The Coming Generation of Genius", gave the IQ rankings, according to his own method, of 12 famous geniuses.

On 24 Oct 2011, Libb Thims began to merge the 300 Cox IQs and the 100 Buzan IQs, mixed in with other names cited with genius IQs, into a then-labeled "Genius IQs" list.[49]

Notes | Discussion

A summary of 139 or below IQs (from here).

In 1916, Lewis Terman, in his The Measurement of Intelligence, defined "genius", "near genius", and the "very superior intelligence", according to IQ, as follows:[50]

Terman genius IQ scale (1916).png

In 1995 to 2010, Libb Thims, building on the previous historical genius range IQ studies, confined genius rankings to those cited at IQ 200 or above (amounting to about 40 geniuses, existive and historical).

On Oct 2011, the “genius IQs” page (the forerunner to the top 1000 geniuses rankings) was started, wherein the inclusion requirement was an IQ citation of 140 or above (or equivalent justification).[51] The following is the CBPT IQ ruler, which shows the general spectrum of the genius mindset range:

CBPT IQ ruler.png

Lastly, of note the previous wiki-based version of the list, prior to its migration to this wiki (above listings), as of Aug 2020, had about 850 geniuses (750+ ranked and 100+ candidates); with about 500 names in backlog.[52]

IQ:120-139 range

Note three: on 16 Oct 2020, the bottom IQ cutoff of 140+, the definition of "genius", per Terman (1916) definition, of the top 1000 genius table, was extended down to the "notable" seeming "very superior intelligences" range of minds, in the IQ:120-139 range, as defined adjacent, so to incorporate newer "green" geniuses, and or potential genius candidates, generally without previous "genius" level classification (or genius IQ calculation), in the slating state (may possibly be ranked into the top 1000 genius position, given further time and digestion these amassing "missing candidates"), began to be attached to the lower end of the top 1000 geniuses table, either in the first-draft IQ:120 or above range group, or in the lower genius range (140+). This was done, so to facilitate the organization of the scattered mass of growing Hmolpedia-connected collection of seeming “sharp minds” (previously precluded from the list, per lack of previous categorizational “genius” citation). The general idea here being that when the list grows to say 3,000+ names (or more), then a more realistic “pressure” will exist, in respect to the ranking of the top 1,000 names.

List | Origins

Libb Thims’ Jan 2008 MS word file, derived from his person folder collections of geniuses, of 15 supposed “geniuses” with IQs of 200 or above, wherein we see a confused mess of real geniuses, e.g. da Vinci or Goethe, mixed in with fake geniuses, e.g. Savant, and geniuses with IQ miscalculations, e.g. Galton, and child prodigies, e.g. Kearney or Grost, with IQ over-estimations.[51] On 24 Mar 2008, this list was posted online, and by 2009 the list had grown to 18-individuals, which was used to make an “IQ: 200+ | Smartest person ever” YouTube video; which was followed up, in 2010, with a 40-person video remake, in four parts, gathering 2M+ views. The list, thereafter, has grown, been cleaned, corrected, and adjusted to become the current work-in-progress the top 2,000 geniuses, shown here.

Note one: from 1995 to 2008, the geniuses listing amounted to 15 names, collected on a Word-file, as shown adjacent. In 2010, the genius listings were confined to those cited at IQ 200 or above, amounting to "40 geniuses" existive and historical.[53] In Mar 2010, an "IQ:225+" page was started, a subset of the former, in attempts to rank, classify, and study the doze or so people, then known, with purported IQs of 225 or above; little sense, however, resulted.[54] In Oct 2011, the “genius IQs” page (the forerunner to the top 1000 geniuses rankings) was started, wherein the inclusion requirement was an IQ citation of 140 or above (or equivalent justification).[51] Note two: the previous wiki-based version of the list, prior to its migration to this wiki (above listings), as of Aug 2020, had about "850 geniuses" (750+ ranked and 100+ candidates); and about 500 names on back-order, not yet ranked or classified.[52]
