You can't believe everything people tell you without evidence/ proof, right?

It would be very hard to give evidence of everything that a person says or does. We all just have to figure it out for ourselves.

Those you really trust to tell you the truth, don't need evidence or proof. Their word is sufficient. When I was young, my Dad told me not to pee on an electric fence or I'd regret it . I believed him.

When it's someone I have reason to trust, I don't need "evidence" to believe what they say.

I think I'm the opposite. For me, trust has to be earned. As we get older, and have been burned a few times, we get more cautious. (Anyone who has bought a car from a used car salesman knows this.) You can't take someone at their word until you know what their word is worth.

If you can't trust your own judgement, I think you will miss out on so much, while you are waiting for people to prove you can trust them..if I buy a car from a used car salesman and it goes wrong, I will take it back...most car salesman know less about mechanics than I do...hehe

I think people like to believe they can trust people but they really don't. Do you lock your doors? Do you leave your keys in your car? Would you leave your bike in a public bike rack in any city without locking it up? Would you buy something online that guarantees to cure cancer, diabetes, grow hair, and make you look 20 years younger? When you buy a used car, there is usually a sign that says "as is, all sales final". Would you trust a child or grandchild to a babysitter listed on Craigslist or without first checking them out?

Would you trust a refugee blindly?

LOL... Ever watch COP's? How many times do the bad guys tell the truth?

Not dinging you here Platinum, it's just that we are not as trusting of strangers as we sometimes would like to think we are.

Jimmy, that is taking trust to a new level, but from the time I was a kid until my twenties, you could do all those things ..as I was growing up, I did trust people because they knew if they let me down, it would not work out very good for them..but even now I will trust people and so far I've not been disappointed ..

But we are not talking about being able to do all those things 50 years ago. ( I grew up in the 50's and 60's as well) It's not the same world today as it was back then.
Crime statistics should tell you that.
If it's worked out fine for you, that's great. For many, it hasn't.
You said if people let you down, they knew it wouldn't work out well for them. Back then, there was accountability. Accountability is a vanishing trait.

I mentioned the past as a small part of my reply...when they ask these posts, they are asking for each persons personal opinion and that's what I did...if you don't trust people, that's fine, but I'm different...and I grew up in 40s and 50s...this is about our own experiences..

I try to take a person at face value until I catch them in a lie. I no longer respect that person or trust them. I used to tell my kids. You don't have to have a good memory if you tell the truth.

This analogy is near the same: I want to like and trust Wikipedia and I think I found a way of doing that. I check out something on there that I actually know enough about to see if that site has the same information. For example, I like baseball stats so I checked their list of 500 home run hitters. Someone had entered a name that didn't belong there (around the 530 home run slot) and it was probably the name of the schmoe who put it there. I got it removed.
I still like the site, though, and I use it often :)
