Researchers have recognized that interpersonal trust consists of different dimensions. These dimensions suggest that trust can be rational, cognitive, or affective. Affect, which includes moods and emotions, is likely to have a direct impact on the affective dimension. On the other hand, there are also studies showing that affect indirec tly influence cognitive judgments. Nonetheless, in this chapter we argue that the impact of affect on judgment will not be the same on all individuals. In effect, th e impact varies, depending on the individual‟s attention to affect, motivation to use or guard against affect, or regulation of affect. All this may suggest that an individual‟s abilities or tendencies to manage affect will have implication on his or her trust relationships with others.
