A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagram that graphically displays all the possible relationships between a finite number of sets. At their simplest, Venn diagrams are made up of overlapping circles. The interior of each circle represents a set of objects, or objects that have something in common. The exterior of the circle represents all that each set excludes. The areas where circles overlap show the relationship between sets. For instance, if one circle represents the set “women” and another circle represents the set “politicians” the area of overlap would represent women who are politicians.
