  1. Modeling approach: Decision-theoretic (DT), game-theoretic (GT), socio-cognitive (SC), combined DT-SC approach (DSC)
  2. Interaction: The type, extent and mode of information sharing between individuals
  3. Sub-categories: Direct Interaction (DI): Directly interacting with others, Direct Observation (DO): Observing interactions of others, Transitive Interaction (TI): Making use of indirect information, Sociological Interaction (SI): Making use of social information including bias towards certain individual types
  4. Visibility: Trust information is available Globally (G) or is local and Subjective (S)
  5. Information in context: Whether information is seen in Context () or not (x). Context can be the topic in which an individual is operating
  6. Agents behavior: Handles the existence of malicious individuals (), or not (x), otherwise n/a
  7. Information transitivity: In case of transitive interaction, how the information is exchanged ( for different options), no exchange (x), otherwise (n/a)
  8. Reliability measure: Does the model use a trust reliability measure () or not (x)
  9. Cognitive aspects: Does the model include cognitive aspects in decision making, only beliefs (B), both mental states and beliefs (MB) or not (n/a)
