We don’t look at data neutrally

We don’t look at data neutrally – that is, when the human eye scans a chart, it doesn’t give all the data points equal weight. Instead, it will focus on certain outstanding cases. It’s human nature to pick out the stunning successes of a method and to overlook the day-in, day-out losses that grind you to the bone. Thus, even a fairly careful perusal of the charts is prone to leave the researcher with the idea that the system is a lot better than it really is. – Dr. Van K. Tharp
