AbstractThe distinction between affect- and cognition-based trust is applied to investigate differences between Chinese and American managerial networks. We found that affect- and cognition-based trust were more intertwined for Chinese managers than American managers. For Chinese managers, affect-based trust was more associated with economic dependence ties and less with friendship ties. Whereas alter's embeddedness in ego's network solely increased affect-based trust for American managers, it increased both types of trust for Chinese managers.
