Mean takes into consideration all the data involved in a data set when making decision and this reduces the chances of making sub-optimal decisions. Other measures of central tendency however just makes use of a part of the data set when making decisions and in this situation, the chances of making sub-optimal decisions based on analysed data is very high.
