5 random things I like about statistics and proof you are a dork

You are a dork. The proof is that you thought a blog post about statistics might be interesting. I admire your strange interest in statistics.

  1. I like how trend lines become straighter and straighter as you increase the sample size
  2. I like how box plots convey everything you need to know about a distribution
  3. I like 3 dimensional maps where the axes take you hours to name and then you go “duh, of course!”
  4. I like mahalanobis distance, cronbachs alpha, and factor analysis.
  5. I like how effect sizes can make statistical significance irrelevant.

Again, your turn!
