Discussion on: How to set Python3 as a default python version on MacOS?

I tried this and now get this when I run python --version:

Usage: /usr/local/bin/python [--prefix|--exec-prefix|--includes|--libs|--cflags|--ldflags|--extension-suffix|--help|--abiflags|--configdir|--embed]

Anyone know what's going on?

EDIT: I fixed this. This step: "Change the default python symlink to the version you want to use from above." should be better explained as to what the command should be. I had changed the wrong part of it
