The problem with your approach is Intersection wants two or more
lists and you are supplying only one list. I would do what you
want as follows:
In[1]:= a = {{-1, -3, 1}, {0, -3, 0}, {-1, -1, -1}};
b = {{-2, -1, 1}, {0, -1, 0}, {-1, 1, -2}};
In[3]:= Intersection @@ (Eigenvectors /@ {a, b})
Out[3]= {{-I, 0, 1}, {I, 0, 1}}
But if you favor defining a function as you did above to return
matrices and want to use Table, then the same result can be
obtained with:
In[4]:= x[1] = a; x[2] = b;
Intersection @@ Table[Eigenvectors[x@n], {n, 2}]
Out[5]= {{-I, 0, 1}, {I, 0, 1}}
