We consider a problem in the ambit of decisions under uncertainty, i.e., we study situations where a (not necessarily complete) preference relation is given on an arbitrary set of gambles and the decision model of reference is the Choquet expected value with respect to a belief or a plausibility function. For this aim we introduce two rationality principles which are necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a belief function or a plausibility function such that the corresponding Choquet integral represents the relation. Nevertheless sometimes a decision maker could be either not able or not interested in giving preferences among gambles, but he could only be able to specify his preferences under the hypothesis that a particular event happens. In other words, he could not be able to express his preference relation under a generic scenario, but could assess it under various scenarios, which are taken into account at the same time. So we need to consider the Choquet expected values with respect to a conditional belief or plausibility function as decision model. As is well known there are several notions of conditioning for belief or plausibility functions in the literature. The choice of the different conditioning notions heavily impacts on the properties of relations represented by the above model.
