Is there a relation between trust and trustworthiness?

Abstract (Tamás Kovácsa, Marc Willingerb)

Our analysis is based on a two-way classification of subjects : according to their trusting type and according to their reciprocal type. We show the existence of a strong correlation between trusting types and reciprocal types within subjects.
