A personalized human perceptual opinion capturing and modeling system includes a processor and memory. Logic stored in the memory renders a user interface on an electronic display. The user interface includes many active areas radially linking multiple peripheral image objects to a central image object where an image object is an object of an image or a visually represented entity. The multiple peripheral image objects are positioned around a curved path about the central image object. The active areas include impression characteristic objects associated with hyperlinks that render a second user interface. The second user interface displays a selected peripheral image object, the central image object, and a color mapping model or a visual feedback mechanism. A database stores user expressed perceptual opinion data representing the similarity of the selected peripheral image object to the central image object. A user's positional movements of a positional object rendered on the electronic display enable the user to visually express and represent the similarities between each of the plurality of peripheral image objects to the central image object through the impression characteristic objects, a visual heuristic object, and a spatial separation.
