I want to thank each of the people here for expanding what is possible and expanding my views in a variety of areas. I am genuinely grateful for that.
I have been stuck on this and can use help with this answer. I think time is the only test for trust and that only time will reveal whether I can trust someone. I am often cynical in saying things like “time will tell” or “people say all sorts of things but time is the only true test”. I would like to hear ideas that can get my thinking past those levels.
Please answer any number of the following:
How do you determine whether you can trust someone and rely on him or her when you really need him or her?
What traits, behaviors or actions do you see as being a trustworthy person?
How do you measure trust?
What ideas do you have in the area of trust?
Sincere thanks for sharing whatever comes to your mind - I am grateful for every single answer.
