In most interesting decision problems, action choices heavily depend on the decision criterion adopted by the decision maker in evaluating the alternative options. Different choices will in turn produce different outcomes and different rewards to the decision maker. In the talk, I will try to introduce and justify game-theoretic situations where different players may choose actions according to different decision criteria. Time permitting, the presentation will then focus on two things: (i) how beneficial different decision criteria are in terms of rewards to the players;  (ii) how players could infer the others' decision criteria from observed play.
