Well there is a very old saying ‘Figures do not lie, but liars figure’. NO clue who said it, but it is a line that has been in my training material (on Mathematics) for the past 11 years at least.
Lies can take many forms. One is suppressing the truth and one is suggesting a false statement. How you present the data is also very important – at least as far as the presenter knows human psychology, it is.
Today I was going through a website where a person had asked ‘I have x amt to invest…where can I do a SIP’. The answering media company also has a rating business. Now if you give a person a list of 4-5 options, the chances are he / she will pick up the first two. The probability of picking up 4 and 5 are well, remote.
Lists have to arranged by some particular order – alphabetical, ranking or returns (over some sensible period). Fair enough? Can any of my readers (please) explain the following ranking:
D **** 15%
F **** 14%
F **** 14%
T **** 18%
H ***** 20%
I did not understand. I know Ritu Kant Ojha (an ex journalist) can explain this to me. Come on Ritu kuch to batha…
