This paper presents a new spring net approach for distributed problem solving in MAS. Distributed artificial intelligence consists of distributed problem solving and multi-agent systems. We extend such specialized DPS and MASs to a general MAS, such that an agent may make a trade-off between selfishness and unselfishness, thus adjusting its own personality and autonomy. This alternative to traditional approaches can deal with a variety of complicated social interactions and autonomous behaviors occurring in multiagent systems.
