# Connotation-differential Prints - Comparing What Is Connoted Through (Fuzzy) Evaluations

### Marcelo Loor, Guy De Tré

#### Abstract

To evaluate the level to which an object belongs (or not) to a particular set, say A, one could focus on some object’s features according to what one understands by A. With this consideration, using the evaluations of a group of objects given by two persons, we want to determine the level to which their individual understandings of A match. Therefore, hypothesizing that a difference in understandings (or connotations) of A could be marked by a difference in one or more of the evaluations, we propose a connotation-differential print (CDP). A CDP is a representation of any difference in connotations of A between two persons in a form that makes itself available to computation. Additionally, we study how to use a CDP to extend a similarity measure for intuitionistic fuzzy sets in order to reach a meaningful comparison between two of them.
