This map printed in Cosmo (March 2013) intends to tell which type of boy lives where based on surveys of 40,000 men in the U.S. Here we have what Katz calls "too little information" which unfortunately "takes up space and wastes energy."
There is so much information in that an entire page is used up with tons of text and a whole map of the U.S... yet, it's meaningless because there are no numbers.
We don't know the percentages for each state of how many men scored in each personality trait category. Obviously, the majority deems which color the state will be... but what if the state is 49% family man and 51% "Loyal Tough Guy." And then, how will will compare separate states without numbers? The results are rendered a waste.
Also- qualitative concerns- the colors are so similiar!!! Easily confusing.
