An empirical analysis of transitivity with four scaled preferential judgment modalities


  • José García-Lapresta


  • Luis Meneses


In this paper 6 classes of weak fuzzy transitivity have been considered in a real decision problem: 200 students were asked twice about their future graduation trip, first taking into account only destination, and second considering prices, too. Each group of students compared trips by pairs, where intensities of preference could be shown by 4 linguistic labels represented by numbers from 0 to 1. The results have been analyzed in order to determine the influence of the numbers of alternatives and inherent attributes of the alternatives (destination and money) on the fulfillment of the 6 properties of fuzzy transitivity.
