    In the Ohmeter page of Basic Concepts And Test Equipment it is written:
    "Resistance is the measure of friction to electron flow through an object. The less resistance there is between two points, the harder it is for electrons to move (flow) between those two points. Given that electric shock is caused by a large flow of electrons through a person's body, and increased body resistance acts as a safeguard by making it more difficult for electrons to flow through us".
    It's a kind of detail which totaly confuse me. So I am very thankful for this forum.
    I always thought the more resistance, he harder to move, as it "resists" more. It's also what I had the feeling it does when I'm testing some circuits (mostly containing audio signals).
    So it's important for me to understand this kind of concept as I would like to learn basics (making DIY projects without basic understanding for too long... So always doubting when I have to troubleshoot).

    Also because I understand the next sentence as the contrary of the first?!
    Thanx for your help!!!

    The first bold statement should start "The more resistance...."
