Abstract

Decision makers’ attitude analysis

Author(s): Yu Jing, ZhaoMin, Chen Yan, Song Shengbang

The relative preferences for each decision maker (DM) over all feasible states are one of the most important information when modeling and analyzing a conflict. As DMs’ preferences are usually the subjective judgments of DMs, DMs’ attitudes may have significant influence on DMs’ preferences as well as the outcome of the conflict. Specifically, DMs’ preferences and state transitions can be changed when DMs hold positive, negative or neutral attitudes towards themselves and/or others. Thus, the resolution or equilibrium of a conflict may be different under different attitudes. When carrying outan attitude analysis, firstly, a specified dispute is studied without considering DMs’ attitudes; secondly, the attitude analysis under the framework of Graph Model for Conflict Resolution is executed. As demonstrated by the study of a water resource controversy, attitude analysis methodology can be readily applied to real-world conflict to gain an enhanced strategic understanding when DMs’ attitudes are not discrete
