It took me years before I could understand what was going on in a histogram. I had trouble understanding the tails, skewness, and concepts such as "fat tails."
With a lot of practice, histograms have become more intuitive for me.
I believe I have some sort of "graphical dyslexia."
I want to build an inituitive understanding of basic, common types of data visualizations such as:
- scatter plots
- stem and leaf plots
- density plots
By intuitive, I mean that when I glance at one of these plots, I want to figure out the gist of it within a few seconds (rather than stare at it for minutes without anything registering in my mind, as is usually the case for me).
StackExchange: can you recommend to me books/resources that can help me with this?
