Abstract: Personal information is an important precursor for the trust formation process in virtual project teams. However, till today it has remained unclear what specific personal information most trustors prefer. Insight in their preferences as well as in their foundation could support the development of templates that provide communication support to virtual teams. In this paper, we describe and empirically test an approach that links trustors’ common information preferences and a TrustWorthiness’ Antecedents (TWAN) framework. Thus, we provide ‘the mind’s eye’ on interpreting and valuing information elements.
