Thinking a little about trust, the topic of discussion this evening in FIR Live on BlogTalk Radio, and looking around the web I came across a post from US blogger David Armano, via Tim Malbon, containing the image you see above.
David calls this the â€œProfessional Prism of Trust.â€ He doesnâ€™t explain it; I suppose it is obvious, so perhaps it doesnâ€™t need explanation â€“ according to Davidâ€™s chart, you trust your doctor far more than you trust your social media expert.
While the chart may be a little tongue in cheek as David notes in his own comment, you have to ask: can a social media expert really be lower in anyoneâ€™s feeling of trust than, say, a snake-oil salesman?
Well, 25 or so people broadly agree in the postâ€™s comments, many of whom have also weighed in with their different takes on Davidâ€™s prism.
A banker could be lower, I reckon. A lot lower.
