Individual Determinants of Intransitivity in Situation of Object Preference
2017
This research was implemented within the framework of the general concept of choice.

According work results, we revealed significant differences in inconsistency of preferences of values and colors. We also discovered that narcissism and psychopathy have a significant influence on the exhibition of intransitivity of values. In addition, we found a relation between the creativity of the person and the intransitivity of values
