What is trust?

Every one knows that it takes a long time to generate trust. And it can be destroyed in seconds. Sometimes for ever.

But what is trust?

Is it nothing more then a feeling or can you decide to trust and be trusted?

What is the difference between trust and misuse?

Is it true that trust is the expectation of not being misused?

    Trust is the very core foundation of every human inter-relationship. Buisnesses produce income based on trust. Repeat sales are based on more solid trust. If company does not fix a service or product problem, the trust factor is lost. Next vendor.

    A person marries another, because there is a resonable amount of trust. Any imoral infraction weakens the trust. The emotion of love can usually reinforce and fractures. . . but only for so long, if the trust is continuously broken.

    The fluctuation of trust is directly proportional to the fluctuation of human nature. Therefore trust is both predictable and unpredictable.

    People aren’t just afraid of being used. They are afraid of what they reveal, being used against them.
