Test Your Trust …

A while back I wrote about how someone had betrayed my trust.

Well someone sent me a video about an experiment that took place in Amsterdam in 1980 to explore what trust means.

It’s a very simple test and yet – thanks to the lapel microphones – you can hear how the participants breathing reveals their nervousness.

At the end of the day, trust is only demonstrated when it’s tested and that’s why, when you find someone you can rely on, you hold on to them life your life depends on it.

Because one day, it just might.
