Trust

“is broadly defined as a positive bias toward other people in the processing of imperfect information (Yamagishi & Yamagishi, 1994) and making benign assumptions about other people’s behavior, thereby allowing individuals to overcome uncertain social situations” (Schmid, Al Ramiah, & Hewstone., 2014).

I found this in a research article, and was fascinated by the terms “positive bias” and “imperfect information.”
The first time I hear of positive bias.
For me it implies the fact that human beings are flawed.
Trust itself is a risk.
(A bit uncomfortable to think of it this way, as often I see trust as such a warm/comforting notion)

Just some interesting find I want to share with you
