My first idea was to do a graph which showed a correlation between two data sets even though clearly there is no correlation (http://www.tylervigen.com/spurious-correlations). However, this seemed to me something that had already been done and I wanted to try something different. I thought it would be interesting to do a graph similar to one of the FOX News graphs where the data is correct but because they manipulated the values on the side the data points to something that isn't really there. I chose the Myers Briggs data since its something I used to find really interesting before it was pointed out to me that the information given by the test is not really indicative of personality. It seemed like a good idea to tie lying data and misrepresentation of said data.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
