The problem with this guy’s analogy.

I think the problem with his analogies is that he is changing the axis on his graph.

When he talks about:

  • Zipf distribution:
    • Y Axis: $ income
    • X Axis: Competence/Ingenuity/Merit/IQ
  • Normal distribution & Uniform distribution:
    • Y Axis: # of people
    • X Axis: Competence/Ingenuity/Merit/IQ
