Is it logically? Is it intuitively?
What makes me trust?

Trust is built upon communications between people, and experiences one have with one another over a period of time. Once lost it is very hard to get back. True some people are more trusting than others.trust is something that is earned over a period of time by mutual commitment to one another whether it is a deal being made, a project getting done, a job being finish, or what ever.
No, I would not say it was logical I am more to incline towards intuitively but it is more than base on ones gut feelings it is more based on your own experiences with this person, persons, company, business or whom or what ever and in time trust is built between the two parties or more.

The mechanism for an emotional response is life. Anything in life can trigger emotion. Emotional processing studies the life of emotion, beginning to end. Trust begins with love and ends with love. What happens in between varies with circumstance.

I think it is a combination of instinct and logic. The reason being that we are multi sensory. We are able to detect based on the five senses which is physical along with the subconscious and super-conscious which is outside of the physical realm. The more enlightened you are the more you are able to tap into the sub-conscious and the super-conscious and the more you develop your intuition and instinct.

trust seems to be there in the newborn, even before it's needs are satisfied

I think trust is a natural inherent part of who we are until someone or something causes us to mistrust. As Fred so rightly pointed out, a newborn naturally trusts as do all children until they're shown otherwise. As a species we've learned to mistrust - trust is already within, we only have to access and allow it. Because of this I would definitely say it was connected to intuition and not logic.

Hi Michael, thanks so much for your question. I agree a lot with Michaela - as a species we've largely worked hard to move away from trust.
For me, it boils down to follow through. Trust is the expectation that what you are expecting will happen, either because you have faith in it (enough personal firm demand) or you have belief that it will happen (i.e. you have references from the past).
Trust begins inside first - do we trust ourselves? You can measure a person's character by the type of commitments they make (to themselves and others) and how many they keep.
In answer to your question, my personal opinion is that trust is a combination of logical and intuitive - but that itself on the quality of your intuition. For example, sometimes I have mistaken a "gut feel" for fear or deep seeded ego. Trust ought to be an objective thing - demonstrated by someone's ability to follow through on themselves and for others.
Hope that helps - out of curiosity, why did you ask the question in the first place?
