on average

In some cases statistics can be useful.

But in others, they can unhelpful and misleading.

What turns out, on average, to be the best choice might not be the best for you. Following the majority might be counterproductive.

Don’t think that because it works for most people, it will work for you.

Don’t choose something just because it’s the popular choice. But don’t rule it out either.

Think critically. Assess everything on its merits.

Decide what’s right for you.
