measures of central tendency are mean, mode and median , whereas measures of dispersion are variance, standard deviation and interquartile range (it explains the extent to which distribution stretched or squeezed).

Measure of dispersion is used to quantify the size of the differences of a variable. The central tendency measures its 'average' behaviour. Central tendency and dispersion measure different properties of a distribution.
