Parlia is a radical new self-discovery engine,
and home of your Opinion DNA™
Learn about who we are and our mission to improve the civil discourse,
and discover the thinking behind the creation of Opinion DNA™
Why is the world so polarised today? What is driving this division? Why do people do what they do? Say? Think? How can we make sense of people's opinions?
We want to figure out what's really going on in the world today, what is behind it all. We what to help discover what's driving people's opinions and actions. We want to help improve global understanding our personality, values, and bias.
We believe that understanding the complex underlying fundamentals of human opinion and behaviour can help us radically improve civil discourse, improve group relations, build teams, protect democracy, help us heal, and generally improve communication in the world. `
And this understanding can fundamentally change us as individuals, in life, relationships, and work, helping us to see the beauty in the complexity of our own thinking and opinions.

We are forever curious about how our opinions work, and how these thoughts impact our world. And the stakes are high! From trying to understand how Brexit happened, to understanding Climate Change denial, our opinions really matter.
In different ways, and over years and years, threads of related inquire have brought us to this point, where we feel we can build something (our Opinion DNA™) to actually help us make sense of how our opinions really work (how they form, what influences them, how they impact us), and what we can do with this knowledge to make this a better world for all of us.
We realised to really understand ourselves and our opinions, we need to understand all the complex interactions of a number of important impacting factors that are behind what we believe. Too often people are viewed in a single specturm or single personality element to make sense of their opinion, and we've realized these approaches just don't go deep enough.
Our Opinion DNA™ is a radical new way to understand yourself, a kind of complete set of your values, personality, thinking, and context, and how these things interact with the world.
It is this innovative wholistic view that we are looking to bring into the world, and we are excited about what this information can do for the individual, from improvements in living, and relationships, and careers.
