Trust, but not too much, people whom it is reasonably realistic to trust, but look out for signs of untrustworthiness ; and mistrust those where there are reasons for not trusting, but remain open to discovering them to be trustworthy. And beware of office politics, and how people may beghave so as to enhance their own positions.
