Abstract

Examined the relationship between general trust and trustworthiness. According to the traditional psychological and economic approaches, trust is regarded as a simple reflection of trustworthiness. On the other hand, Yamagishi's (1998) emancipation theory of trust assigns significance of its own to the concept of trust. A device entitled game of enthronement was developed to measure trustful behavior independently from trustworthy behavior, and used to compare the levels between American and Japanese Ss. The results showed a higher level of trust among American Ss, but no difference in the level of trustworthy behavior between the two samples. This data implies that trust has its own significance beyond being a simple reflection of trustworthiness. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2002 APA, all rights reserved)
