The authors are conducting research on value creative consensus building process. This study takes in case of multiple-choice as an example of value creative consensus building process. The authors observed the phenomenon that viewpoint has changed by sharing the conception (value). Next, the authors analyzed the process using constructed Bayesian network model and showed that the appearance of the conception influences the selection. As described above, the authors were able to explain quantitatively the structure of consensus building process that has many choices using mathematical method called by Bayesian network. Furthermore, in this study, we compared consensus building processes based on quantity of choices. This shows that the consensus building process can be grasped by the same structure irrespective of the number of choices, and the possibility that various consensus building processes can be discussed by quantitative analysis in the same way.
