A survey was done here in China to test people’s ideas on how trustworthy different groups are , based on profession. Farmers and religious workers came in first and second, and in third place, prostitutes. Soldiers and students are seen to be slightly less trustworthy, and then we get to government workers, scientists, and teachers. Seen as least trustworthy of all–real estate developers, secretaries, agents, entertainers and directors.
I found this story in a category labeled Offbeat News. I supose because the prostitutes were seen as more trustworthy than government offiials and all the rest, but I am not all that surprised. In fact, I might put them ahead of religious workers as well.
