Today’s Word: credibility

☆  credibility  信頼


If someone has credibility, people believe in them and trust them. The most common time you’ll hear this word is during elections. People and journalists will talk about which politician you should vote for, and which politician has the most credibility. Unfortunately, in Australia, recently it’s been shown that most politicians are just good actors as opposed to having a credibility!

However, it’s not just politicians that need credibility. If you’re the boss at your company, having credibility will mean that people listen to you and trust you. At home, parents seem to have credibility with their kids when they are young, but once they reach a certain age, they no longer just believe everything their parents say!

How about you, personally, do you feel like you have credibility and people believe and trust you?
