Abstract.

This short communication reviews the role of the TODIM method within behavioral decision theory and presents its genesis. Two important aspects of the method such as generalizing that method towards cumulative prospect theory and the choice of a reference point are further clarified.

Keywords. : Cumulative prospect theory; decisions under risk; multi-attribute decision making.
