RATIONAL DECISIONS UNDER CONDITIONS OF RISK 23 the utility concept has been given quite different meanings. An important distinction to be made here is between utility that incorporates the decision maker's attitude toward taking risks (that is, whether he is risk averse or risk seeking) and utility that does not. In a utility-based theory of decision under conditions of risk (whether normative or descriptive), the utility of an action alternative is a function of utilities and probabilities of the possible outcomes (with this function expressing how the decision maker considers these elements when he assesses the utility of the alternative).

It seems that different people tend to make decisions in different ways. A third type of evidence that indicates that there are problems with the von Neumann-Morgenstern theory of maximization of expected utility comes from experimental studies in which different instructions have been used for decision problems that can be considered objectively identical. For example, subjects are told to form an action alternative in such a way that they are indifferent to the choice between this alternative and another given alternative, and they may then be asked to state a probability or to state the value of a manifest outcome that results in this indifference.
