Value Sensitivity in Judgments of Relative Versus Absolute Preference

In this paper, I argue that value sensitivity is contingent on the elicitation procedure. I empirically demonstrate that participants are more sensitive to a difference in attribute values when they respond to relative (e.g., choice and ranking) as opposed to absolute tasks (e.g., independent ratings and WTP).
