About

The color pie or "color wheel" is a concept used by the card-trading game Magic: The Gathering (MtG) as a way of categorizing how individuals are motivated. Although it was created for usage in a fictional context, it seems to map fairly well to how real people are motivated.

The colors are shown on the back of every MtG card in a pentagonal pattern, such that each color is opposite two other colors which generally oppose that color's motivations (its "enemies"). Clockwise from the top, the colors are:

  • white: order, peace, safety, community, civilization; following rules, and making sure other people follow them; absolutism
    • enemies: red, black
    • politics: everyone should be treated equally, regardless of need; may buy into the fair world fallacy
  • blue: perfection, purity, discovering yourself, opportunity
  • black: amoral, success is all that matters, manipulation and deceit are acceptable tools
  • red: impulse, spontaneity, love of sensation and immediate experience
  • green: acceptance, tradition, love of nature, distaste for artificial change

Fully-realized characters (or real-life individuals) most often consist of some combination of these traits, often including colors that are mutual "enemies". An example:
