Society Represented by the gift of the Venn Diagram

A Diagram to represent attitudes towards innovation

A Diagram to represent attitudes towards innovation

Diagrams are handy ways to understand things with few words.  I like to scaffold, with the clever use of diagrams, the public’s view of modern soceity using Vygotsky’s idea of the Zone of Proximal development.  Vygotsky was a crazy cat.  He spent most of his time larking around on building sites and not enough time being a psychologist.  He became obsessed with builders, and more importantly, scaffolding.  We’ve all been there.  we’ve all known that desperate feeling on a saturday night when we find ourselves intoxicated, and locked in a steely embrace with an item related to the construction industry.  When will society learn?  NOW!

Here, I present to you a Venn Diagram depicting attitudes towards the industrial revolution’s major innovations.  As you can see, the majority of society own a ped-egg. Fewer own a JML flameless candle, and even fewer own a Rap’tou. However, a large amount of Rap’Tou owners own BOTH a ped-egg and a JML Flameless candle.  This shows Rap’tou owners, whilst being a minority, are the most forward thinking of folk.  The diagram also clearly depicts that neither Ped-Egg owners, JML Flameless candle owners and Rap’Tou owners DO NOT own the Ottoman Empire.

I trust that has cleared things up for you.  Any questions?
