Abstract : A complete axiomatic system which characterizes the preference relations (the relation of comparative desirability or comparative possibility in different cases) under Maximin (Minimax), Maximax), Bayesian, Probabilistic, Plausibilistic and Fuzzy theoretic evaluations is introduced. A set of these on preference relations is presented, and their validity is tested under the different systems. Based on these results, the commonalities and peculiarities of the preference relations are elucidated and a systematic way of identifying the underlying evaluation method of arbitrarily given preference data is constructed.
