At the other extreme, resilient trust is a noncalculative reliance on the moral integrity or good will of others when they deal with unpredictable issues. Resilient trust survives transactions, is based on loyalty, interpersonal competence, and often is on prior relationships between the parties. This does not mean that there is no risk involved in resilient trust, but many of the risks are already known, may have been encountered in prior dealings with the other person, and may involve expectations of a continuing bond.

Fifth, betrayal has the potential to harm the well-being of the trustor. Although betrayal involves a violation of personal trust, it is not necessarily unethical or antisocial.
