This study explains that the desire to share knowledge is not influenced by attitudes, knowledge sharing behavior is not influenced by attitudes, knowledge sharing behavior is not influenced by self-views of the concept of sharing knowledge, the desire to share knowledge is not influenced by social norms. Behavioral factors of knowledge sharing are influenced by the desire to share knowledge, the desire to share knowledge is influenced by the self-view of the concept of sharing knowledge, the behavior of sharing knowledge is influenced by social norms. In the indirect effect, knowledge sharing behavior is not influenced by factors of attitudes and social norms but is influenced by factors of self-view of the concept of sharing.
