Given this stock of past studies, Tversky’s goal is to go a step forward in constructing choice situations where Weak Stochastic Transitivity is violated and to understand the elements in the choice situation that lead to this violation and the modeling adapted to it additive choice. The most famous empirical work on intransitivity of individual decision makers’ preference is a seminal paper by TverskyPsychological Review in which some respondents apparently violated weak stochastic transitivity.
