Continuing on my theme from yesterday (savers and earners), I believe there are those who instinctively trust and those who instinctively mistrust as their ‘default’ settings. That is, trusters and distrusters! I could imagine that the distrusters probably lead safer lives (as much as human lives can be safe)  but miss out on the opportunities. And, the trusters, indeed, can grasp more opportunities, but, in the same time, can fall into the trap of trusting the wrong persons! So, what to do? Well, expand your natural behaviour to embrace the less natural one, which means improving behavioural flexibility! This way, you will do what is more appropriate in a given situation rather than simply reacting in your default setting!
