"More trustworthy participants, because they are overly-trusting, earn about 20% less on average in our experiment; on the other hand, more untrustworthy participants, because they are unwilling to expose themselves to social risk, also forgo about 20% of earnings compared to those with more moderate trust and trustworthiness "
we trust about as much as we are trustworthy
Then we better believe there are some untrustworthy types out there
So make yourself by habit one who
trusts but verifies
But know thyself as no saint
Know thou shalt be
trust worthy ...mostly
The untrustworthy other gets personified as what
The crouching chinaman ?
the Jew in a sharp suit ?
the guy with the mustache and a dragon tattoo ?
