For example, viewers habitually register spatial relationships between objects, and can pay attention to an individual object more readily than to its parts. Representational correspondence therefore suggests that if what must be depicted is a single quantity, the diagram component chosen should be an object—which will be encoded into memory with less effort than will isolated parts. ” 16 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 T1 T2 T1 T1 T2 T1 T2 T2 16 12 8 4 T1 T2 T1 T2 T1 T2 T1 T2 Fig. 6. A bar graph (of fictional data) drawn in the traditional way (top) and after applying Tufte’s suggested transformations to increase the “data-ink ratio” In fact, when Gillan and Richman (1994) actually tested Tufte’s idea, they did not find that people could interpret simple bar graphs faster or more accurately after they were pared down; even when only two bars were present, participants tended to require more time to use the pared-down bar graphs than the standard ones.

We could present here a long catalogue of facts about how the mind and brain work that are relevant to diagram design. On the one hand, many of these facts point out specific weaknesses in human information processing, such as our notoriously poor abilities to hold information in short-term memory or to discriminate subtle changes. F. M. Kosslyn good contrast among separate portions. On the other hand, relevant features of our information processing systems can be used to overcome its limitations.

His task lies rather in mentally picturing the constantly changing formations of the pieces ... ” Alfred Binet (1894), the father of modern intelligence testing, surveyed many experts who engaged in simultaneous blindfold chess, a popular public “stunt” in the late 19th century in which the performer played several games at once, entirely without sight of a board. One of Binet’s participants, a young master named Goetz, reported that he was “aware only of the significance of a piece and its course ...
