The paper presents basic results regarding probability distributions together with the parameters related to the decision-making time in the repeated trust game. The results obtained are of a general nature, related to the waiting time for a reaction in computer-aided systems, as well as a special one related to the characteristics of the decision-makers participating in the experiment.
