This paper proposes a question, what is rationality of unit in international relations? It is necessary to critically elaborate definition of rationality in three different stages and comes to the conclusion that Accordant Perfect Rationality is pure rationality without influence of inherent features and exterior limitations; Inherent Bounded Rationality considers the inherent features of unit but ignores exterior limitations and Exterior Structure-Induced Equilibrium adds factors of exterior limitations but choice a wrong analytic unit. Thus, this paper put forward assumptions of Unbalanced Rationality with corrections of existing problems.
