not necessarily the most accessible to people with no prior knowledge on the topic, and certainly a little tongue in cheek (see: unicorns), and I’m sure there are plenty of relationships that would prove this inaccurate, but I think it does a pretty good job of giving a clear visual description on a topic that is often confusing and semantically sloppy.
of course, it’s those expanses of unlabeled color that are often most difficult. navigating where exactly you and your partners’ needs lie on a vast and complex spectrum can be a challenge, duh.
