  13. If two variables are independent, they will also be linearly independent, therefore their pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (or aka correlation) will be 0. However, the converse is not necessarily true, for they can be linearly independent but non-linearly dependent. However, it is sometimes mistakenly thought that linearly independence does imply independence when the two random variables are normally distributed. This is false though, because normally distributed and uncorrelated does not imply independent at Wikipedia.
