Context Effects Explained Through the Accumulation of Simple Comparisons
We describe a new cognitive theory of multi-alternative, multi-attribute decision-making where preferences are constructed through a sequence of simple comparisons. The proposed theory sheds new light on the robustness of context effects, including the attraction effect. We demonstrate novel context effects consistent with the theory in choices from sequentially-presented options.
