- This method works by having you choose between a series of two hypothetical alternatives, each defined on only two criteria. Each choice requires you to make a trade-off, thereby establishing your relative preferences.
- Useful if you have 10 or more criteria, where regular PAPRIKA trade-offs would take too long; and if just the presence or absence of a criterion makes sense for your alternatives
- This method works by having you answer a series of questions where you choose which of two criteria is more important to you
