A computer simulation method is provided for modeling the behavioral expression of one or more computerized agents for running a simulation against real-world input data, and providing a visual display identifying elements in the input data corresponding to the modeled agent(s) response(s). Simulations can be run on sources of input data on global networks for agent types of different cultures, societies, and behaviors, such as news feeds, text communications, and reports, in order to identify keywords or phrases therein that correspond to agent behavioral expressions being monitored. Robust new visual tools are provided for discerning patterns and trends in the simulation data, including waveform charts, star charts, grid charts, and pole charts.
