You are often inclined to see the best in people and attribute them with positive characteristics and motivations. Although this is positive and will help you form stronger relationships, it does have a disadvantage in that it may allow others to take advantage of you. Being aware of this possibility is very beneficial to self-protection, and will allow you internally to re-examine the motivations of others, and take action when necessary. Be selective of who you fully trust, and draw on experiences where your trust has been a disadvantage.
You can be trusting of those with whom you feel more comfortable, and sometimes remain skeptical about the true intentions or motivations of others.
Although your occasional hesitancy to trust others is not necessarily a negative trait, developing awareness of the precursors to a distrustful perception of others could prevent you from making unfair judgments based on subconscious biases. If sometimes overly selective in who to trust, it is better to understand what influences your extension of trust, to improve your relationships with others.
You are more likely to distrust and question those around you. You prefer to trust yourself above others.
Although your hesitancy to trust may occasionally be advantageous, it may also create more stress, in that you take on more than you should. Consider trying to build a positive and trusting rapport with someone who you feel sure is not a "threat". Being able to rely on others will decrease your own stress and mitigate any potential feelings of isolation within your work. Your reluctance to trust others could impede teamwork, try to incrementally increase your trust others starting with "low-risk" information or tasks to lighten your workload and improve group dynamics.
