Effect created by credits & debits on different account types

I’ve spent quite a bit of time trying to understand how transactions affect accounts. One should remember that the effects of Debit (dr) & Credit (cr) depend on the type of account you are dealing with. For example, receiving money into a bank account, i.e. debiting it, will increase its balance. Whereas, sale of goods, or crediting the sales account, increases its balance. Hope this illustration helps!
