**PsyDAG**, Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 10:52amIt seems like your distribution is negatively skewed (skewed left, with the tail pointing to the left on a frequency distribution).

The mean (as a balance point for the distribution) is most influenced by deviant scores, and the mode just indicates what value had the most scores. Thus the median would be the most central of the measures of central tendency.

Does that help?

Make up a frequency distribution that fits the above description.

x

xx

xxxx

xxxxxxxxx

Insert numerical values and find the measures of central tendency for that distribution to see where they are. Does this help a little more?
