Generalized expectancies for interpersonal trust.

American Psychologist (Impact Factor: 6.87). 04/1971; 26(5):443-452. DOI: 10.1037/h0031464

ABSTRACT Describes results of a program of research on interpersonal trust, defined as belief in social communications. Construction of a scale for measuring individual differences, construct validity studies, and investigations of antecedents of trust, correlates of trust, and changes of college student trust are included. The evidence supports the hypothesis of (a) stable individual differences in a generalized expectancy for interpersonal trust, and (b) the feasibility of studying such trust under a variety of conditions.
