In the research work presented, interactions among the various types of agents in autonomous decentralized systems are based on the theory of transaction analysis (TA) of psychology. Human beings are considered one particular type of autonomous agent. Hence, the agent's structure as well as interactions among them are defined and performed much the same as human behavior and attitudes. Cooperation among agents is negotiated by exchanging strokes. After the cooperation among agents is established, each of them has a specific role to perform in order to reach a particular goal. The paper presents the definition of the inner structure of an agent along with the negotiation process occurred among them until the cooperation is established.<>
