Trust is the foundation of all we do and say—or at least it should be; but it seems that trust, at a societal level, is not what it used to be. So how can we know whether we can trust someone?
This article by Nick Hobson, writing for Inc., makes the following points:
- People in this world can't be trusted, so you should be equipped with the tools to figure out the trustworthy from the untrustworthy.
- The human brain has what psychologists call a cheater detection system that allows us to know when someone can't be trusted unconsciously.
- Recent research suggests four nonverbal behaviours that, when done together, act as a reliable signal of untrustworthiness.
- According to the study, the four subtle behaviours are hand fidgeting, face touching, leaning away, and crossing arms.
