Do you believe that cycles in personal preferences are rational when the
preferences aren't used for voting? For example, would you consider it
rational to prefer having an apple to an orange to a pear to an apple?  
(No voting, just which would you prefer to buy if they had the same
price). The answer to this question will help determine what postulate we
disagree on.
