Abstract Abstract—One of the main methods for eliciting the values of the membership function µ(x) is use the Likert scales, i.e., to ask the user to mark his or her degree of certainty by an appropriate mark k on a scale from 0 to n and take µ(x) = k/n. In this paper, we show how to describe this process in terms of the traditional decision making. Our conclusion is that the resulting membership degrees incorporate both probability and utility information. It is therefore not surprising that fuzzy techniques often work better than probabilistic techniques – which only take into account the probability of different outcomes. I.
