- Psychological distance, Trust, Knowledge sharing.
The existence of psychological distance implies that individuals have a sense of uncertainty, resulting in a non-trust attitude; the increase of psychological distance also makes employees unable to obtain psychological pleasure and will not produce knowledge-sharing behavior. Therefore, the distance between the minds has a negative impact on trust and knowledge sharing. Trust can reduce each other's uncertainty, increase mutual psychological commitment, enhance the knowledge sharing in the organization. Therefore, trust has a direct positive impact on knowledge sharing and can play an intermediary role in psychological distance and knowledge sharing.
