Bill Bentley's curator insight, November 9, 2014 10:18 AM

Read this short but interesting article and do some introspective thinking about your own beliefs.   I have a friend who strongly believes incorrect things about statistics in the context of Six Sigma problem solving.  I tried to debate these with them at first but soon gave up. This article explains why it was hopeless to try.  If the person I'm referring to is reading this, you probably don't recognize who you are!
