LJMeme.com - The Trust List

weather: mostly cloudy
outside: 25°C
mood: amused
Trust Metric
My trust level is: 86%

LJ username:

I really wish it would save your answers for each person. =P

Everyone on my list started out with a minimum of 4, "I think this person is okay to trust, just not too far". To me, 1-4 should really be rolled into one. It's not that I do or don't trust people, it's more like I don't really know them and therefore, I really can't say much about the level of trust. IOW, they haven't given me any reason to not trust them. If I were travelling close to them, I'd contact them and try to meet up, but I couldn't bring myself to trust or rely on them for something important.

5, "I can trust this person with most things" is generally for people I know in person or have met a few times offline.

6, "I can trust this person with my secrets" is for those who I actually have trusted with something very deeply personal and have kept their word to me... Thanks =) Love you both =)

7, "I would trust this person with my life" is reserved for </a></b></a>.

Interesting categorization. Very similar to what I use.. --Ray

Trying to figure out if I am one of the people in category 6 or not. If not, I think I should be. ;) However, I *know* I'm at least in category 5+.

I would mostly put myself in the same category splits as you, except I have more than one person at #7. And while I can be very open in discussing things with certain people I may not consider myself knowing *well*, I would NOT trust many people with my secrets. Too paranoid about what they might do with that information or with feeling they have a certain power over me by knowing a thing. (That's why I would NEVER see a "mental health care professional" who was a friend first.)

I don't think they're supposed to accept you as a client to begin with. Just like a surgeon is not supposed to treat their own family. There's too much prejudice to give objective medical advice.

But still, the average person might try to cut corners and save some money same as if they went to a friend who is an auto mechanic. Or those who, once they find out a fellow guest is a doctor/lawyer/etc, will invariably ask them questions trying to get free advice.

I'm just saying that to me I would never want to burden a friend to that extent, nor would I trust most of my friends with that level of personal intimacy about myself. Hell, I could go into all kinds of reasons why sometimes I just can't tell YOU things or talk to you about stuff, but this is not the place. And it has nothing to do with you, rather it has much more to do with my feelings about myself in relation to you. Bugger, that just doesn't come out right at all. You wanna know exactly, call me and I'll be happy to discuss it with you. :S

Re: Hmmm...
I completely understand.

So why did you rate me an 8? ;)

8 is for Lucky Morons =D
