The Three Dimensions of Trust

Webster offers numerous definitions for trust but the first one you would see if you were to look is: “total confidence in the integrity, ability and good character of another.”

That definition offers a fine starting point. At the same time something I read recently in the book, Crucial Conversations by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan and Switzler (McGraw-Hill, New York, NY, 2002) set me to thinking about all the nuances that contribute to or detract from our ability and willingness to place out trust in others.

According to those authors there are two key factors that enter into the degree of trust we place in an other person. One of those is the person’s ability (read: skill, knowledge and experience) as it relates to the performance of a task; i.e., can we trust them to perform in a competent fashion? By example, it’s the challenge for the parents of a newly-licensed teenage driver. The teen may be highly trustworthy as to their character but invariably they lack the experience required to handle the variety of risks they will face behind the wheel.

Actually, that facet of trust is what lies behind our ability to trust objects to perform as expected. I trust my truck to get me where I want to go. I trust the bridge I cross each day on my way to the office. I trust the roof over my head. Such trust can even extend to the performance and reliability of entities as in I trust my favorite Mexican restaurant to deliver a consistent quality meal.

When it comes to people, that sort of trust is a key determinant in our decision to delegate. Specifically, do they have the experience and technical ability needed to perform the task in a timely and effective fashion?

Many organizations spend small fortunes trying to convince you and me that we can trust them and their products. For instance I still remember from my childhood the tag line to Texaco’s commercials, “You can trust your car to the man who wears the star…” What about you? What advertisements can you recall where trust was (is) central to the message?

Yet when it comes to people (as well as some entities) there are two additional factors we must evaluate starting with motive or motivation. In that aspect of trust we are called upon to make a judgment about do we trust their commitment and integrity when they promise they will do something or behave in a certain manner. The authors of Crucial Conversations suggest this element of trust is (or should be) largely situational. That is, if their motive (motivation) is aligned with mine, then I should be able to trust them to fulfill their promise(s). Conversely, when the other party is operating with a different agenda it might not be so wise to place our trust in their pledge to perform.

Unfortunately, Patterson, Grenny, McMillan and Switzler stop there in their discussion. However I think there is a third, equally important element that almost always enters into the equation – that being our past experience with the individual (entity or object as the case maybe). Have they proven themselves to be dependable, reliable, a person of their word and therefore someone who is trustworthy? Or, have they violated the trust extended to them at some point in the past so that the evidence suggests a measure of risk? Having failed us in the past, can they be trusted now?

Personally, I believe this third dimension comes into play more frequently than does motive in a lot of settings and decisions if for no other reason than true motive can be difficult to judge or detect.

Of course past behaviors is a problem that could haunt just about all of us since who among us hasn’t managed to break trust with someone else at some point? Certainly I’ve been guilty more than I care to admit. And once that trust is violated or lost it is a very hard thing to re-establish.

Early on in this piece I stated that the decision to delegate a task to someone else involves placing one’s trust in their ability to perform as expected. In the workplace an act of delegation is most often thought of in the context of boss to subordinate. However, just as in the context of teams, family or the volunteer environment trust really must be a two-way street. For the employee to be effective he or she must have (earn) the trust of the supervisor. At the same time so too must the supervisor be worthy of the trust of those they would lead. Inconsistency on the part of the leader between walk and talk or talk and talk quickly calls into question the agenda (motive) not to mention the overall sense of integrity.

And though the road back from that place where trust has been lost may be long and arduous, I hope most would agree it is a road worth taking.

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?” Luke 16:10-11

An Assessment Of Super Mario Bros three

The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 is an American animated tv sequence based on the video clip game Super Mario Bros. three. It aired on NBC with Captain N: The Sport Master in a very programming block titled Captain N & The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. three from September 8, 1990 through December 1, 1990. After NBC canceled their Saturday Morning lineup in 1992, the show was split from Captain N, and aired on Family Channel and as part of the Captain N & the Video clip Sport Masters (VGM) block along with Super Mario World (TV sequence), Captain N, and time-cut versions of The Legend of Zelda. When it aired on VGM and PAX, the episodes ran slower than the NBC versions to fill up more time. For example, the NBC version of “Kootie Pie Rocks” ran for approx. 10:18 and when it aired on PAX and on DVD, it ran approx. 11:20.

The episode of Super Mario Bros 3, named Kootie Pie Rocks featured Milli Vanilli and the songs “Blame it around the Rain”, and “Girl You Know It’s True”. Shortly after it aired, a scandal broke out about Milli Vanilli lip-syncing to the songs. The master tape was probably wiped, and was replaced with an edited version without the songs (which were replaced with the Mega Move, originally heard on Captain N). Several lines were removed, such as when Koopa is kidnapping Milli Vanilli from a concert and remarks “Blame it to the rain? Blame it on King Koopa!”, which was changed to “Blame it on King Koopa!”.

At the end of Super Mario Bros three, Milli Vanilli dedicates a song to Princess Toadstool, and play “Girl You Know It’s True”, with Mario, Luigi, and Princess looking from the side, and try to get Princess Toadstool to snap out of a trance like state, which was cut out in the later version. Also, when Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Toadstool think of a plan to rescue Milli Vanilli from Kootie Pie, they form a fake back-up band (“Back Ups R We”), parodying Toys R Us, and try to perform “Girl You Know It’s True” so Kootie Pie doesn’t throw a fit. However, since no one in “Back Ups R We” knows how to play their instruments, it sounds horrible and results in Koopa’s guards and minions fleeing the castle.

When this scene appears in the second version of Super Mario Bros three, the Mega Move replaces the song that also plays at the concert. The second version is on DVD, but various copies of the original uncut version are floating around the internet, from off air video recordings made by viewers during the original airing. Other episodes also played covers of various songs (Baby Face, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Wipe Out, & Great Balls of Fire), which were usually not played in later airings or video clip releases. These scenes also had the Mega Move that was used in the 2nd version of “Kootie Pie Rocks”. However, some episodes of Super Mario Bros three with the songs intact were released to the “King Koopa Katastrophe” VHS/DVD in 2003.

How to Seduce Beautiful Women – Three Methods to Boost Your Dating Game

Attraction involves creating a connection with women. Most men seem to believe that seduction is a superficial game because they are bombarded with so many different routines, methods, and ‘lines’. The fact of the matter is that seduction works on a much deeper level. It works very closely with self-development. Read on.

How to Seduce Beautiful Women – Three Methods to Boost Your Dating Game

1. Build Your Life

To really become naturally attractive to women, you will need to be operating from a place of core confidence. In other words, you will be coming from a place of full self expression rather than trying to impress women.

But how does a man build this core confidence?

Core confidence comes from being on your path. A man who is on the path to achieving his potential, his vision will be operating from a place of core confidence.

2. No Need for Validation

Again, if a man seeks to impress women, he will come off as needy, desperate, and insecure. The reason is because his need to impress is communicating that he does not believe he is good enough for the women he’s “gaming”.

A naturally attractive man will never try and impress women. Instead, he will freely express himself without any need for validation from others. This strong sense of reality becomes magnetic to women.

3. The Right Routes

I really hate the saying “just be yourself”. While it is true, it is way too vague for it to be of any help. We all know that there can be many versions of ourselves, and it can be hard to really pinpoint which one we are exactly.

Let me tell you what you are…you are naturally an Alpha Man. You naturally want to dominate your reality, achieve your desires (goals), and live an exciting life. I have never met a man who did not want to do this.

You need to uncover this man for he his at your very core. Once you have done this, simply find the right routes to communicate him to others.

And remember…if you want to make women crazy with lust, you MUST master your body language. This will give you an unfair advantage over the MILLIONS of men who are completely CLUELESS about its power!
