Session-specific portal filter

I want a user to be able to select a portal filter via a radio button. I would like the variables filter to be applied to a self-join relationship. I initially thought I could set it up so that the selections would be global values. Then I would use a field (field A) that would be a calculation to equal the global value. Field A would then be used as the predicate for the self-join relationship to filter the portal. Then I started thinking about how this would work when multiple people were using the database. As I understand how things work, global values exist relative to a user session. One person's global value could be different from another persons's. What I don't understand is how this would work for a field that calculates off the global. Can Field A's value be different for one person than for another person?
