If the data is distributed somewhat evenly around the mean, the bars on each side of the middle bar will have roughly the same height. This is called a symmetric distribution.
In a symmetric histogram, the mean is typically found in the tallest bar.
When the data is not evenly distributed around the mean the histogram becomes skewed.
For skewed histograms, the mean is usually not found in the tallest bar.
