The Political Color Wheel Project

About the Test

Looking deeper into political attitudes!

Politics can be tough to understand, and understanding what people really believe is even harder. That’s why we designed a survey that asks about a wide array of topics, regarding policies and general philosophies. Throughout the survey, questions focus on the interconnected relationship between individuals, their community, and the government. And how those relationships play out in international relations, economic matters, and social and civil affairs.

We ask questions about some more obscure topics, as well as more mainstream discussions. And we do so in pursuit of learning more about our participant’s political orientations, and helping our participant’s learn more about their own identity.

About the Color Wheel

Up to 16,777,216 different colors!

To map out political orientations, we use the Red-Green-Blue (RGB) color wheel. The RGB color wheel is a tool commonly used by graphic designers and web developers to create unique color schemes on projects. The RGB color wheel functions by using different combinations of varying shades of red, green, and blue to produce over 16 million different unique hues. These hues are marked using a alpha-numerical hex code or numbers ranging from 0-255 for each color. Ultimately, this complex, yet versatile, algorithm produces a wonderful spectrum of colors.

Just like the color wheel, we use the varying degrees of beliefs as indicated by survey answers to determine values in three different categories. Those three values are then used to plot out a single point on our color wheel to indicate your unique political identity. Learn more about our three categories below.

From trade, diplomacy, military action, immigration, and more… How should the United States be involved with world affairs?

Regulation, taxes, prices, income, infrastructure, and more… what should the government’s role in the economy be?

Social programs, safety, laws, freedoms, and more… what role should the government and community have in people’s lives?
