Abstract
A decision maker (DM) makes choices from di erent sets of alternatives. The DM is initially fully ignorant of the payo associated to each alternative, and learns these payo s only after a large number of choices have been made. We show that, in the presence of an outside option once payo s are learned, the optimal choice rule from sets of alternatives is one that is as if the DM had strict preferences over all alternatives. Under this model, the DM has preferences for preferences while being ignorant of what preferences are \right".
