on Trust and Relations to others
I learnt to distinguish 3 categories of trust:
- capability trust
- character trust
- vulnerability trust
- [empty category]
Capability trust is easy to comprehend, for example after seeing John’s work, what he can can do, and his credentials, I trust him as a master builder. Professionally reliable.
Character trust is something we experience, for example, after years of going to same school and later serving alongside Mary, I trust her with my kids and my money. Reliable and responsible.
Vulnerability trust is the most difficult, it is the level where I can share a secret or expose a weakness of myself to another person. Confidant / Confidante نديم – نجى
