There are many possible questions and ways of investigating intuition. One that was carried out by Professor Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire is whether women’s powers of intuition exceed those of men.

Where the median is not a member of the original batch, Tukey excludes it from the determination of both Q1 and Q3. In this example, then, finding Q1 of the 11-year-olds’ data involves finding the median of the five values 40, 42, 43, 47 and 49, which is 43 seconds. By a similar calculation, the corresponding value of Q3 is calculated to be the median of the five values 49, 50, 58, 60 and 65, which is 58 seconds. 5 seconds. So, for Tukey, Q1 is found as the median of 21, 55, 57, 57, which is 56 seconds, and Q3 is the median of 58, 61, 65 and 65, which is 63 seconds.
