Skewed and Standard Deviation

How to do I remember skewed distribution? Positive and Negative?

Really struggling with this concept :confused:

Follow the outlier. If an amount is much higher than the mean, it would cause a positive skew. If an amount is much lower than the mean, it would cause a negative skew.
