They can be two of the most chilling words you'll ever hear in combination: “trust me.” 

But we can't simply rely on ourselves and our own judgment for everything in life.  At some point we have to trust somebody else.  Psychology professor David DeSteno explores the topic in his book The Truth About Trust, showing us what it takes to trust others and ourselves, and the benefits from instilling that trust.
