Do you trust people easily?

This video caught my attention because the thumbnail looks like anything but a cat in love. 

Maybe the cat has gone through some rough experiences that made it scared and hostile but after the man proved that he doesn’t want to hurt it, the cat got comfortable with him. It made me think about us humans. Sometimes, it’s not easy to trust others and it’s not our fault that we have gone through what has made us suspicious and doubting. However, I believe that the way we cope with this and how we are going to treat others afterwards depends on us. What do you think? 

If you are interested in psychology and people’s behavior, especially in relationships with others, here’s a channel I have enjoyed lately. 

Another brilliant moment in the video is when the man asks, “Nice and warm inside or Freedom?”; that’s a choice that most of us have to make at some point.

  1. I must admit, I don’t people until I know them really well.
    However having said that I always give newly met folks the benefit of the doubt
    until they prove otherwise.
    In other words I start at zero with an open mind perspective.
    It is up to them where they place themselves on my trust scale either + or -.

  2. Well, I don’t trust people easily but sometimes give them the benefit of the doubt…

    You can usually find out through experience what some people tend to do…It is smart not to be too trusting and not to be too cagey…but sometimes take calculated risks..

    Yes, I have had some bad experiences but hopefully taught me something..

  3. Since I could not explain my answer for your post about trusting people. I either trust them too much or do not trust them at all. I want to get back to the animal one. If animals were abused or abandoned it does take them a long time to trust humans. You need patience with them and let them come to you.
    Talk to them and make them feel welcome. People are a lot harder to do that with.
    That is why there are those that prefer animals to people.

  4. I tend to always trust at first, and I keep on trusting, until, or if, that trust is abused by others.

    I think that trust is an accommodatory stance of love that gives the benefit of the doubt of whether the other person is also loving, or not to that person.

    Love assumes that everyone is worthy of both trust and love.

    If they are not loving people, it is not so much misplaced trust by us, but more misused trust by them.

      • Yes, we should take each instance or interaction with anyone as a fresh one, to avoid prejudicing the situation from some past happening.

        If we could all do this, it would really give the benefit of the doubt to the other person, giving them another chance to step up and prove that that other instance was just an aberration, and not really the whole person who they are.

        As someone once said, we are the person, not what we do, to some extent.

        Punish the deed, not the person, in other words.
