    Do you believe anything that others say?

    If so, are there any filters to your judgment on what people say?

    I believe everything that people i know very well say but i must say it takes a while to earn my trust. So in general i am skeptical when i am told something until i verify it.

    It depends if money is involved or not. Most people crave money and so you have to ask yourself where the money is involved.

    it depends on the person involve. As a rule, i don't believe people because people are people and they will always be people.If you believe people, you'll be disappointed by them, thank you.

    once I can verify what is said, then either I believe or I don't.

    It depends on the analysis of your brain with its own filters.Some people have no even brains let alone filters, so they believe anything they hear.

    Do I believe anything that others say to me? Sometimes I believe them. A type of self preservation is to question the information that is provided to me by others. Sometimes it sounds up and up and later on you learn you've been had. Then there are times when the information was not accepted as truthful and it was. So it is a catch 22. I think it depends on the messenger. Is that person trust worthy? It makes a big difference for me.

    unfortunately I do tend to believe everything that people tell me.  I have to learn not to do this.  This is one of my problems in life.   Its so strange when you catch people in a lie and have to ask yourself why did I believe this.  The problem is when you don't tell lies you want to believe that the people around you don't tell lies either.

    Nothing is a complete lie and every truth is not a perfect 360.   If you delve into a fabrication, you will find that there was a seed that gave birth to the lie.

    I generally give people the benefit of the doubt until they prove me wrong. Most people are honest people and if you can't trust anyone then we live in a horrible world.

    It's not that I disbelieve what people say, but I like to test out ideas myself and think things through, rather than accept anything without actually thinking about it in detail.
