Description

Find ways in which you can show trust in the other person (without putting yourself too seriously at risk).

Ways you can do this include:

  • Lend them something that they believe you value greatly.
  • Lend them a bit of money when they have forgotten their wallet.
  • Accept suggestions they make even though you have voiced disagreement.
  • Leave them with your possessions.
  • Do things for them before they do things for you in return.

Example

A person going to lunch with a colleague pays the bill, trusting that the colleague will pay in the future.

A person on the beach asks someone to look after their things when they are in the sea.  

Discussion

Trusting another person sets up an exchange dynamic, where, having trusted them, they are now obliged to trust you in return.

When you trust a person, you make yourself vulnerable to them betraying that trust. This gives them power, which will make them feel good. They are more likely then to like you and want to help you.

Being a trusting person, implies that you are also a trustworthy person. This also encourages them to trust you.
