Let’s start with a basic question: How do you decide who to trust?
Perhaps they look you directly in the eye and offer a firm handshake. Those are signs of trustworthness, right? That’s what Mrs. Alton, my second-grade teacher used to say.
Or maybe there was something familiar in their demeanor that makes you comfortable. On the other hand, you may rely on some special intuition that magically measures sincerity in their voice.
