The efficiency of the decision making process is significantly related with preference relations of the decision maker. In the existing literature there are different types of preference relations, mainly fuzzy preference relations, linguistic preference relations, etc. In the existing literature preference representation formats that consider the self-confidence of the decision maker is neglected. In this paper we investigate the personnel selection decision making problem, specifically choosing the best candidate for a vacant faculty post taking into account the self confidence level of the decision maker. A numerical example with 5 criteria and 5 alternatives is provided.
