  2. I’m having trouble making sense of the first chart, which has only three series in the legend, but ten bars in the chart. And if I try match the bar colors to the legend colors, I get response times that differ significantly from what The Grinder thinks your median response time is, which makes me doubt my interpretation of the chart.
