is the standard deviation a measure of the center or distribution...

my teacher told me center

i read the article

and i\'ve been lead to believe its a measure of the distribution not the center...

if it is a measure of the center how is it? I think it\'s a measure of the distribution...

    Standard deviation is a measure of variation of scores. The measures of central tendency are the mean, mode and median.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
