Replying to LO18199 --

I found the six principles listed by Richard Holloway to be very interesting:

Principle of Honesty (do not deceive)
Principle of Harm (do not harm others)
Principle of Fidelity (keep promises and act faithfully)
Principle of Autonomy (permit and encourage others to act rationally)
Principle of Confidentiality (keep information in proper circles)
Principle of Lawfulness (do not violate the law)

A few years back, some research by colleagues and I found five different
kinds of trust at work in individuals, groups and companies:

A=Acceptability (the degree to which people/ideas are "endorsed")
B=Believability (the degree to which people are genuine and honest)
C=Confidentiality (the degree to which information is kept private)
D=Dependability (the degree to which people reliably walk the talk)
E=Encouragement (the degree to which people support other's risking)


Acceptability = _________?
Believability = Honesty
Confidentiality = Confidentiality!
Dependability = Fidelity
Encouragement = Autonomy and Harm?

It seems to me there are a few parallels here and I was wondering what
other connections folks would note between the two lists. I can be
contacted on or off list, and the URL for the past research of trust and
its five subscales is <>.
Thanks for any leads on this.
