Top Signs Someone Is Trustworthy


What makes someone trustworthy? Well, a new survey attempted to find out.

The poll finds:

  • 85% of adults believe they are trustworthy.
  • But that can’t always be true, considering most folks say that since becoming an adult they’ve had their trust broken an average of 14 times.
  • For this reason, more than half of adults find it difficult to trust other people.
  • Plus, 70% say once their trust is broken it can’t be restored.
  • On a more positive note, 25% say that current events have motivated them to be more forgiving of those who broke their trust.
  • Plus, 10% say they’ve become more trusting this year.
  • One thing most people can agree on (90%), is that someone must earn their trust.
  • Healthcare works like doctors and nurses are considered the most trustworthy, followed by fire and rescue workers, and dentists.
