**PsyDAG**, Monday, June 14, 2010 at 12:56pmAre you assuming that the person has the mean or median salary? You cannot judge a person's salary by the difference between mean and median, unless the salary = either measure.

*Where your salary is in the distribution*is more important than the mean/median values. (e.g., If your salary is the lowest in the distribution, you will be dissatisfied, regardless of the values of the mean/median.)

Also, remember that the mean is most influenced by extreme scores, whether they are higher or lower.
