What is Venn Diagram?

A Venn diagram is an illustration of the relationships between and among sets, groups of objects that share something in common. Sometimes, a Venn diagram is being used as a visual brainstorming tool for comparing and contrasting two (sometimes three or more) different things. Comparing is looking at traits that things have in common, while contrasting is looking at how they differ from each other.

A Venn diagram is made up of two large circles that intersect with each other to form a space in the middle. Each circle represents something that you want to compare and contrast. Where the two circles intersect, you would write traits that the two things have in common. In either side of the intersecting space, you would write the differences among the two things.

Guideline for creating Venn Diagrams

  • Venn diagrams are most useful for showing relationships between two or more topics or things. The topics must be in some way related or comparable or they are not suitable for a Venn diagram model.
  • A Venn diagram is primarily a visual model, it does not necessarily replace note taking, and it is often not suitable for very large amounts of information.
  • Don't be afraid to think outside the circles. The space outside both circles is for that other topic that for one reason or another does not fit into either circle.
