The Average Person Trusts Just 7 People In Their Lives

The signs you are trustworthy have been revealed in a new survey of 2,000 adults. According to the study, the average adult trusts just seven people in their lives.  And, 40% say the pandemic has actually helped reveal who’s trustworthy and who isn’t.  This might explain why more than half find it difficult to trust other people and also why seven in 10 think once their trust has been broken it can never be restored. However, a quarter said recent events have made them more willing to let bygones be bygones and forgive, while one in 10 believe they’ve become more trusting this year. 85% of people think they themselves are trustworthy.

The study found the top signs you’re trustworthy include:

  1. They are reliable
