The purpose of this research is to explain systematically how and to what extent the essential concept of "trust" meaning "trust in God and relying on Him in performing the affairs" and cultural intelligence affect dimensions of time tendency of "the past, present and future" by the strategic decision makers of organizations. Employing stratified sampling method, 261 strategic decision makers were selected from organizations in two provinces of Guilan and Zanjan to fill in the questionnaires. The data were analyzed by structural equations through Spss21 and PLS2 software. Three standard questionnaires, namely, Tavakkol (Niknam), Cultural Intelligence and its components reviewed by the researcher on the basis of the localized questionnaire of Aung, et al., and the time perspective of Zimbardo, and the four-choice scale were used to measure the variables of the research. The validity of these three questionnaires was confirmed through internal consistency coefficient of Cronbach's alpha as much as 0.85, 0.77 and 0.74, respectively. The results indicated that all three types of cultural intelligence, and three components of trust in God affect decision makers' futurism. The greatest influence on decision-makers' futurism include behavioral trust (49%) and metacognitive cultural intelligence (38%).
