Abstract

Incoming information not only changes our knowledge but also our preferences. Decisions are made according to the preferences, which are eventually based on our evaluations of the options. In this paper, we will explore the ways new information affects our evaluations to see how this results in a preference change. A qualitative investigation was undertaken in van Bethem & Liu 2006 in which the preference relation in the initial model is manipulated according to incoming information. Here we will take a more quantitative approach by introducing an evaluation function. Interestingly, in this manner it becomes possible to consider the subtlety of information processing.
