Algebraic choosers make precise responses to pairwise preference comparisons on alternatives that are based on the relative rankings of the alternatives over some set of n attributes of comparison. Probabilistic choosers are less precise than algebraic choosers are, and they give pairwise preference responses that have some probability of being in agreement with the response of an algebraic chooser. The magnitude of this probability reflects the degree of discriminatory power of the probabilistic chooser. The current study significantly expands earlier work on the probability that algebraic and probabilistic choosers will select the same maximal alternative. Three factors are found to have an impact on this coincidence probability: the number of attributes of comparison that are being considered, the discriminatory power of probabilistic choosers, and the degree of dependence between attribute rankings.
