How important is trustworthiness?
Are You Trustworthy?

How about your trustworthiness?


People will trust a person who has a reputation of being honest, reliable and responsible. But how do you know if you’re trustworthy? 


Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

Albert Einstein

The value of trustworthiness


People like to deal with those they can trust. When people trust you, they will like you and make you more concessions than others. 




Are you trustworthy?


But how do you know that you’re trustworthy?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you do what you say you will do?
  • Can people count on you?
  • Do you freely admit when you are wrong or have made mistakes, and do you apologize?
  • Do others feel that you keep your promises?


If you are honest, do as promised and are capable of taking on responsibility, then you feel good about yourself. You feel that you have integrity and cannot be influenced by negative, outside forces trying to bring you down. You feel self-respect, knowing that you are worthy of others’ trust.
