In this note we define the fourth linear structure on ${\rm{Cvx}}_0(\mathbb{R}^n)$ as the pullback of the standard linear structure under the $\cal J$ transform. We show that, interpolating with respect to this linear structure, no concavity or convexity inequalities hold, and prove that a quasiconvexity inequality is violated only by up to a factor of $2$. We also establish all the order relations which the four different interpolations satisfy. Keywords: Convexity, interpolation, order isomorphisms, duality, Legendre transform, Atransform, Jtransform.
