Abstract:

The operation of sorting the items of a Q-set according to their similarity to a given object is idealized by a system of axioms. As a consequence of this axiom system, a stochastic model of Q-sorting behavior is derived. This model, with its associated axioms, resembles in some respects the preference model of Luce the two are compared at length.
