Example text

Ai’s direct experience with Aj includes three elements, AjA, AjI, and AjB, respectively representing Ai’s experience of Aj’s ability, integrity, and benevolence, based on Aj’s response to Ai and its task performance described above. Trust builds up gradually and incrementally, reinforced by previous trusting behavior and positive experiences, whereas distrust is more catastrophic. This reflects the idea that, stated in trust literature, trust comes on foot but leaves on horseback (Six, 2005). Therefore, negative experiences are considered more influential than positive experiences in affecting trust development in the model.

If Aj accepts Ai’s request but does not complete the task successfully, Ai loses 4 points. For simplicity, it is assumed that an agent treats all the other agents with the same intended ability, integrity, and benevolence values if it is selected by them as the trustee agent. Besides, only the cases in which all the agents have the same values of integrity, ability, benevolence, trust propensity, and trust threshold, and the values of integrity, ability, benevolence are the same are considered in the study.

This reflects the idea that, stated in trust literature, trust comes on foot but leaves on horseback (Six, 2005). Therefore, negative experiences are considered more influential than positive experiences in affecting trust development in the model. In distributed multi-cultural teams, the tasks often need to be completed in a relatively short period of time. Therefore, members may focus more on task goals than on social/relational development. As a result, when forming trust in those teams, individuals may place more emphasis on perceived ability and integrity than on perceived benevolence.
