"But sometimes a full and complete picture is just TMI*" (49).
And then at the bottom of the page...
"*Our publisher thinks you need a bunch of middle-aged professors to tell you this means 'too much information,' so there, we told you. LOL."
Someone's got a sense of humor!
And on the following page, during a discussion of medians, means, and modes...
"When Bill Gates walks into a room he dramatically increases the mean income of the people in it, but doesn't much change the median, and has nothing to do with the mode. Microsoft is working on a fix for that" (50).
One of these authors is quite a character. And I'm actually having fun with this text book. :)
The book is the second edition of Psychology by Daniel L. Schacter, Daniel T. Gilbert, and Daniel M. Wegner. Hey, each of their first names are Daniel. What's up with that?
