Using different operational laws on membership and non-membership information, various intuitionistic fuzzy aggregation operators based on Archimedean t-norm and t-conorm or their special cases have been extensively investigated for multi-criteria decision making. In spite of this, they are not suitable for some practical cases. In this paper, symmetric intuitionistic fuzzy weighted mean operators w.r.t. general weighted Archimedean t-norms and t-conorms are introduced to deal neutrally or fairly with membership and non-membership information to meet the need of decision makers in some cases. The relationship among the proposed operators and the existing ones is discussed. Particularly, using the parameters in the aggregation operators, the attitude whether the decision maker is optimistic, pessimistic or impartial is reflected. At last, an example is given to show the behaviour of the proposed operators for multi-criteria decision making under intuitionistic fuzzy environment.
