The first five episodes of the second season described the three components of the “who you are” group of components of my trustworthiness model: competence, personality compatibility, and symmetry. This episode begins covering the components of the “what you do” during an interaction that will allow you to have an immediate impact on your trustworthiness by the end of the interaction. There are three components in this group: positivity, time, and intimacy. This episode goes into the details of the positivity component and the two sub-components it has: the level of BS you bring into the interaction, and the level of your self-centered behavior. These will be multiplied, and accelerated by time an intimacy, which will be described in later episodes.
