Choosing between apples and oranges requires one to consider both the type of fruit and the number of items available. Equipped with this information, decision-makers weigh the quality and quantity of the options to choose the one that meets their needs. Using to assess where participants prefer to shop (quality) and how much they are given to spend (quantity), Archy de Berker...
