Abstract: The aim of this research is observe the links between the monetary poverty, deprivation on attachment, and the develop of adaptive preferences. We work with a sample of individuals who have slept at least one night during 2005 winter in the Montevideo's shelter net, collecting socioeconomic and psycologic information through a specific survey and the Rorschach test. The fuzzy set methodology allows us to asses our questions improving the dichotomy measures. We find evidence about the develop of adaptive preference in these individuals, and we assess the question if it is the life in the shelters one of the main reasons why the individuals adapt their preference respect to the feasibility of the life far of this protection.
