Логическая операция транзитивности при принятии решений: междисциплинарная область изучения психологии и экономики

Пермогорский М. С.
The study is intended to cover problem of mastering the mathematical methods, in particular, the rule of transitivity. The point is that the mastering of this rule without explaining the limits of its applicability leads to a false conviction in its universality and to mistakes when solving problems for which it does not apply. The results of our study show that up to 70% of people make mistakes in dealing with "intransitive" problems because of using the rule of transitivity. The general purpose of potential study is to explore characteristics of decision-making in situations where non-transitive preferences are rational and adherence to the axiom of transitivity leads to irrationality.
