Trust and Understanding in Face-to-Face and Synchronous Online Negotiations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This study investigates to what extent the synchronous character of chat communication overcomes the problems in creating mutual understanding and trust between conflicting parties. An experimental study was conducted in which participants negotiated with a confederate in either a face-to-face or online setting. The results show that negotiators feel equally understood and trusted by the other party in both conditions. However, their own ideas about understanding and trusting the other party are higher after a FtF negotiation than after an online negotiation.
