Oh, another one. This one helps me understand the difference between margin and padding.

Padding is similar to wearing a thick coat; It's technically part of you and changes your width/height because it will affect how up close and personal you can be when you are giving a hug.
Margin is similar to personal space; It's the extra space surrounding you that you would like to have but it doesn't change your width/height. If you require a personal space radius of 50cm and your friend requires 30cm, it doesn't mean you guys have to be 80cm apart.


Hehe, good one. During Swedish winters, margin is extremely high, ie: wearing thick clothes for cold weather!


Sorry, I made a mistake and confused the two 🤐. updated
