"Trusting is what we do. It's based on several abilities that we bring to the task.
--Profiling people. We discern the patterns of people in terms of what they actually say and compare that to what they actually carry out.
--Reality oriented. We recognize the reality and personality constraints that play a part in carry out what we say and how they may interfere with a person's actual doing what he or she says. Being realistic in this way enables us to not be blind to personal and inter-personal reality.
--Secure vulnerability. To trust we have to open ourselves up, be receptive mentally and emotionally to someone or some thing and play with it."
From an interesting article on the nature of trust
