4. Take the money and run Playing the trust game You’re at an unfamiliar bar, chatting to a new acquaintance, Daniel, when an economist approaches with a glint in her eye and a wallet full of cash. She offers you ten dollars – the money is yours to keep, and you can pocket it right away if you like. But you have another option. If you give some or all of the ten dollars to Daniel, the economist will triple the gift – if you hand over four dollars, the economist will add another eight, so that Daniel gets a

Conclusion The importance of being trustworthy In the end, what matters most: trust or trustworthiness? Trusting is the right thing to do when it aligns with or generates trustworthiness, while trusting the untrustworthy is a recipe for betrayal, disappointment, and exploitation. Trust can also misfire when we misunderstand the interests and commitments of others, even though they are not inherently untrustworthy. If I do not know or care about your wishes, if I have tried to make clear that I cannot or will not help you, then it would be a mistake for you to trust me, but I would

8. Institutions, conspiracies, and nations Rich interpersonal trust lies at the heart of our lives, underpinning our relationships with friends and family; likewise, the value of trustworthiness guides us in forming and maintaining those relationships. Looser ties of trust, reliance, and cooperation are also crucial to our daily interaction with acquaintances and strangers. But what about our attitudes of trust – or distrust – as directed towards institutions, public figures, and entire social groups? Is there a difference between trusting the political system and trusting politicians, or between trusting the Church and trusting clergymen? Can institutions themselves display trustworthiness, or

6. Knowledge and expertise Honesty and good intentions are not enough: in trusting, we also seek competence. If I trust what you tell me about where to find a reliable builder, I trust that you are honest, but I must also trust that you know what you’re talking about. If I trust you to look after my pets when I’m on holiday, I trust that your intentions are good, but I must also trust that you know how to look after a Great Dane and a Siberian hamster.

4. Modes of existence Either/Or , Repetition , Fear and Trembling , and Stages on Life's Way – exemplify the ‘indirect’ approach to which Kierkegaard attached such importance. Not only do they set out to present opposed outlooks and styles of living; they do this in an imaginative or ‘poetical’ fashion which is designed to exhibit – from the inside – what it is like to envisage life within the perspectives identified. The reader is invited to participate vicariously in these contrasting visions, much as he might if he were entering into the minds of characters
