Trust mechanisms are considered the logical protection of software systems, preventing malicious people from taking advantage or cheating others. Although these concepts are widely used, most applications in this field do not consider affective aspects to aid in trust computation. Researchers of Psychology, Neurology, Anthropology, and Computer Science argue that affective aspects are essential to human's decision-making processes. So far, there is a lack of understanding about how these aspects impact user's trust, particularly when they are inserted in an evaluation system. In this paper, we propose a trust model that accounts for personality using three personality models: Big Five, Needs, and Values. We tested our approach by extracting personality aspects from texts provided by two online human-fed evaluation systems and correlating them to reputation values. The empirical experiments show statistically significant better results in comparison to non-personality-wise approaches.
