The objective of our study is to address the importance of interpersonal trust on knowledge sharing. Few studies have investigated the impact of interpersonal trust on knowledge sharing between individuals within an organization. In particular, little research has been done to examine the effects of trust on specifically knowledge giving and knowledge seeking behaviours. Thus, our research aims to fill up these gaps by studying the effects of two types of trust, namely affect-based trust and cognition-based trust, on the level of nowledge giving and knowledge seeking behaviours exhibited between pairs of individuals within an organization.
