4 Strange Ways To Gain Trust


Whether its closing that big deal or convincing your wife that you and the secretary are just going on a business trip to close that big deal, more trust is definitely something we'd like. But how do we actually increase the level of trust that others have in us? Well qualities such as sincerity, honesty and showing others respect can help develop a trustworthy reputation over the long term, but what if you don't have any time for that shit and just need to quickly trick someone into believing you're a Nigerian prince?

Yeah I feel sorry for people with only one hand as they need to find a partner with whom to do this sign

Well, you're in luck, because for a low low price of 99.95 Steem, I'll share with you 4 morally and factually questionable techniques to instantly gain the trust of people. Or you can just read the rest of this article for free. I guarantee all these techniques will sometimes work.

Wear Blue Instead of Red

Ah, red vs blue - a rivalry as old as this sentence itself. Science has shown that people who wear blue are more likely to be trusted than those who wear red. And by 'science' I mean flimsy anecdotal groundless testimony obtained in uncontrolled groups - basically the gold standard for the definition of the word 'science' which Scientology wishes it could meet.

The color blue is generally associated with qualities of trust and reliability. If you've ever wondered why they use that blue liquid in sanitary pad ads instead of just good old fashioned period blood, that's probably your answer. And all this time you thought Stayfree was marketing exclusively to royals. And while we're here at high brow humor land I just want to share that I have the most trustworthy balls ever.

You trust her don't you? Told you it works

Show Some Weaknesses

This is by far the number 1 reason why people find it difficult to trust me: because they just can't relate to someone perfect like myself who has absolutely no flaws. Well it's either that or the fact that I'm a shameless liar.

My research has shown that actual research has shown that displaying weakness can make one appear more disarming and therefore, more trustworthy. Something as simple as mispelling words in a Steemit article can humanize you and get you an avalanche of upvotes. But don't get too carried away. When it comes to the relationship between personal flaws and trust, this isn't the case of the more the merrier. While a nervous giggle can be a cute ice breaker, chewing your toe nails is probably not the best first impression you want to give to a potential big client.

Part Your Hair From the Correct Side

Ok, this one may sound bullshit, as in even more bullshit than the rest of the stuff on this list, but it's strangely interesting in a mundane way that I'm going to include it anyway. Apparently, men are more trustworthy if they part their hair from the left and vice versa for women. Most movie heroes part their hair from the left. Shit, even Superman has a left part while his nerdy alter ego Clark Kent parts his hair from the right.


The glasses and clothes didn't fool anybody, it was the hair part that was the true disguise

Somehow we're all meant to subconsciously process how people part their hairs and form a judgement from it, which is pretty annoying for me because my crown is on the right. So parting my hair from the left makes it look like I'm doing an impression of a combover. But whatever, hopefully people will warm to my braided pubes instead.

Touch Yourself on the Chest in Conversations

Some body language experts have suggested that lightly touching your own chest from time to time in a conversation can engender an image of openness and trustworthiness, especially when you're using positive descriptive language. This automatically causes people to relate you to the positive qualities being described. I suppose the idea would be to slightly gesture towards your chest every time you utter good attributes like 'very reliable' or 'fiercely loyal' or 'not a pedophile' when conversing with others.

And before you ask, no, this doesn't work if you touch yourself elsewhere. So if you want to win people over, there's really no point in going all Michael Jackson on them when in the middle of a conversation.

Science has shown that people who wear blue are more likely to be trusted than those who wear red.

Superman and Spiderman wear both blue AND red. So they are trustworthy shady characters :D
On a serious note, though, I certainly don't trust people who wear red. But I'll keep the reasons to myself.

Touch Yourself on the Chest in Conversations

I rarely touch myself.

And before you ask, no, this doesn't work if you touch yourself elsewhere.

I see. This kind of explains some minor setbacks I have had every now and then when interacting with others.

Nice article i think you should add that while talking don't avoid eye contact or do it less.. people often get uncomfortable when we did this.. and then its gonna lead to loosing trust enven from the begining of conversation

You are verry correct about the blue color. Almost everything on an emotional level is somewhat a factor in the way people percieve rach other. Ive noticed that in the long run for myself. The way you look is the way people will percieve you.
Cheers for the great article and much love :)

What an awesome post @trafalgar. For building trust I believe so much on all the nuggets stated by you. I just pick one out of many:

Take responsibility – when something goes wrong and it’s your fault, take responsibility right away and focus on the next steps. It’s easier to trust someone who owns up to their mistakes.

Talking about hair, by the way:) A few weeks ago I made your stylized digital portrait, but seems like you missed it or just didn't like it. Anyway I'd love to know your opinion at least here in comments, cause I tried to contact you with steemit chat when I had " drawing steemians week", but with no success, ha-ha:)

The eyes of that girl in blue are really trustworthy.

Well, "Blue is glue".


Even when someone upvotes you, the upvote option turns blue, and that kind of shows you entrusted your upvote to that person. Even steemit is blue, and I trust my time with steemit.


Shit, that blue trick surely works man, I am going on my next date like this.....

Did you go on a posting hiatus so you can craft this marvelous masterpiece? I feel you didn't need to, but I'm just glad that you came back with this one. 'Hilarious' doesn't even do this post justice. If I follow your advice to a tee, but end up with a differing result, could I get my 99.95 STEEM back? I did touch my chest during presentations a few times before, sliding it down sensually for good measure. Let's just say I was met with looks of disgust.

Something as simple as mispelling words in a Steemit article can humanize you and get you an avalanche of upvotes

I used to do this but ended up with contrasting results. While I wanted people to feel like I am human instead of being a literary god, I feel like they misinterpreted it as 'me no talk english good.' I shake my head as the sound of crickets echo in the background. Not even a tiny violinist showed up for that.

Haha, I was like 'science', what science?!

Then I kept reading and I lolled. A lot. 😁

So what if I'm balding: does it then still matter if I part my hair from the left side, or does going bald get me an instant vote of distrust?

Dmn I just noticed that on my avatar my hair is parted from the right side...And I don't even part my hair! It's too short for that. That's what you get when you ask someone to turn you into a illustrated avatar. Great...

I'm horrible at effective communication. I wonder if I touch my chest more and become more trustworthy, if that will improve my communication! I look better in red so that's not changing. Plus I'm losing some hair every day so don't know how much longer I'll be able to part it for.

I wish I read your observations earlier! I usually wear blue, but part my hair the wrong way; I speak with a lisp and am an atrocious speller (written lisp), but my gestures are nevet self referential. I have been negating my tryst building with non-trust building actions.

Now I am going to defiantly neglect spell check, thump my chest often, throw out any shades of red, and part my hair correctly.

34
  ·  6 days ago

beautifully constructed post, the superman bit and about the parting of the hair was hilarious, so what happens with someone double crowned? Do they part half one way and half the other : ) Body language is very important and most people are oblivious when they are saying one think but their body is portraying a different vibe.

"Wear Blue Instead of Red"

Hilarious post, and yet so true in many ways. I can tell from just looking at my own personal encounters with others, that I've have come off more trustworthy and vice versa when certain points on this list were in. And I think there's a lot of truth to the point on showing weaknesses. I think that when you confess a weakness to someone, if makes it seem less horrible and humiliating to do the same, and so the other person is more encouraged to open up. Really enjoyed reading this :)

I agree as well but want to further elaborate that :)

  • Trust takes a long time to build
  • To make our partner trust us and vice versa, we need to trust them and make them know we 100% trust them. Then they will feel more confident in the relationship

Very interesting indeed. Many people discount such issues, but emotions, gut feeling, deep psychology, and preference all come into play. Good article!

Nice post @trafalgar.... I like your post.
Building trust is very easy although sometimes a little trick should we put in it.
But building a relationship if it starts with a lie then no relationship can last long.
So its conclusion, build a good relationship starting from everyday communication ... grow trust with each other with your partner ...
I guarantee 100% relationship will be eternal

Very scientific and straight to the point post. I love it!

You know what I've also heard?

It is scientifically proven , trust me, that if you make a joke about how blue and trustworthy your balls are at the present moment, you'd have an approximately 7.02% chance of gaining the trust of anyone, and on top of that 7.02% chance there's a second 73.2% chance that the trust gained will be accompanied by a quick and fast sexual rapport, which is something most people value very much.

But don't take my word for it, try out for yourselves! It works.

It's really fascinating how easy humans are to deceive, mislead and influence.

I'm going to take your advice and I'm going to use one of the techniques suggested as I teach some business English courses from time to time. I'm going to introduce myslef saying "Hi, I'm Dave - not a pedophile" while gently touching my chest. I don't know if I'll go with blue nail polish though as I'm not particularly fond of the color and I don't think my girlfriend would feel like sharing, but I'm sure adding blue to the hand that is touching the chest would make it work even better.

Donald Trump only seems to wear blue and red ties while speaking to the public. Maybe sometimes he's just asking for hate, not from the amazing worldly advice he's giving as that's top notch; his tie brings on all the hate! It all makes sense now! Moral of the story, ditch the red tie?

I have a tip that I have used that is effective in a work environment.

  • If you have a difficult co-worker and are having trouble working with them, try to ask them for advice on something. It can be hard to do if the relationship is already strained, but find something small and give it a try.

I highly agree with you @trafalga. Eventhough how difficult to build your trust to other beings if you only follow what was written it would be more easier and light to build and nourish it deeply.

Well seems that you addressed your post to the limbic part of the brain: our instincts will agree with you from obvious reasons (blue is calm like the lake or the sky and red is danger as the fire) But I would love to believe that we evolved in the latest hundred of years and I would not say not to trust our survival skills but rather to refine them. I am a women that wares red in most of the cases and I am perceived as trustworthy :) Maybe is the fact that adds up the desire (fire whitin) :P Anyway my point is we should question anything our minds as often as we can. Steem on

But our minds may perceive fire as warmth and water as a danger as well, I think it's more evolution based than anything else.

My second favorite color is blue and I have several blue shirts and t-shirts, I have my weaknesses and she knows it, I also part my hair from the left, but sometimes I go retard and just let it flow in any direction, usually left though. And finally, I think I touch my chest often when talking.

Yay, I'm trustworthy! :D Thanks @trafalgar for a wonderful read, it was funny and well written! Good day sir!

Eureka - that's where I'm going wrong - I'm spelling everything correctly - will just have to try harder! Interesting theory about blue v. red - however I don't think it holds true in politics, otherwise we would always have the same parties in power? Thanks @trafalgar

Being in the ministry, one needs for people to trust them with their situations in life. Some of this I did naturally and some are new (like the touching of the chest.)

Gaining trust is really hard. Once you disappointed someone, it´s much harder to gain back the trust. Loved your 4 ways even if they truly are a little strange.

Hey @trafalgar, I'm glad your back to posting again!

My entire wardrobe consists of blue and black and I have a nasty rash on my chest that always needs a good scratching, I never knew that would force the yokels to trust me, but I guess I will use whatever works.

Maybe this is why they keep letting me in Britain when all the evidence points to my intentions of becoming an illegal alien, hell bent on draining every resource that I can get my hands on.

Now if only I could learn to part my hair, then I would be a quadruple threat :)

Thanks for the article. As a fellow pathological liar and malignant narcissist I often need to gain someones trust before I sell someone a shiny new baby I stole at the hospital. Also I might sound more reassuring when I tell someone that the salty taste in their drink is normal. It's a lot easier to remove a kidney if the "donor " is unconscious. Easier but not impossible while they're fully aware. Lots of kicking and screaming though. Cuts down on precision but it's doable. Anyway thanks and we should go out for a drink sometime.

Hi. I really learned something new from your article. Gaining trust from people is not easy especially when you are trying to sell something or trying to close a deal.

Showing some weakness, parting your hair and touching your chest are very effective ways, yes, I agree with you in gaining trust for you to get what you want. I love it.

I remember back from the days when I was trying to close deals with top executives of 5-star hotels here in Manila and I was offering back-up limo service to augment the hotel's own fleet of cars. As I enter the room and shake hands with the manager he would notice that I was not wearing very impressive suit. I am in my Filipino barong tagalog and the not-so-expensive kind. I don't remember how I combed my hair and I did not touch my chest. Looking back, I believe it was the simplicity or the perception of some weakness that I exuded. Yes you were right. But if I have learned to part my hair and to tap my chest I would have done better. And if I may add something which may also be of help, it is believing firmly that the services you are offering is exactly the one they need.
