C’mon, just trust me…
Who do we trust? And why? What makes us believe some sources of information but disregard others?
What is your primary source for trustworthy information? What made you choose this source?
Do you tend to believe people who are well known experts, relying on their knowledge and expertise?
Do you trust your friends and relatives because you know them well?
Do you have a favorite media resource that you trust? Is it because so far their publication record has proved truthful and reliable?
Do you trust a certain public figure (perhaps a well known author or a journalist) simply because you like his/her style? Does that make you like the person in general and, therefore, place more trust in him/her?
