Thought Stack: Design Principles, Mental Models, & Cognitive Biases


Apr 29, 2018

The next time someone says "you can't compare apples and oranges"...tell them you CAN.

A comparison is a method for understanding information in a controlled manner within a system.

It's important to understand the variables you are comparing, how you are measuring the data, and how you're conveying the information to others.
