about trust again.
Is trust confidence in me, confidence in you, or confidence in both of us?
Some say trust is entirely internal, and only confidence is observable. If I trust in myself, then I can trust in the world. I trust the person who stated that fact in Wikipedia. Or is it the person who edited the fact to read correctly?
Trust is influence. People who trust are easily persuaded. People who don’t trust don’t listen long enough to hear the argument.
Do I trust because I agree? Maybe.
Do I agree because I trust? I don’t think so.
My dad used to say, Only believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.”
Do I trust you because I know you? I think so.
Do I know you because I trust you? That seems so too.
If I don’t trust me, can I trust you?
It’s an interesting thought.
