Agents are agents, and it’s not unusual to find one with a reputation for integrity.
But agents aren’t necessarily the most trustworthy agents, according to a new survey of more than 600 agents conducted by The Wall St. Journal.
And it turns out that, like most people, they may not be entirely trustworthy.
In fact, some agents appear to have been a little more loyal to their own clients than to the clients they were hired to serve.
“Agents tend to think of themselves as the most reliable people,” said David Dolan, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin and author of “The Art of Agents: The Science of Good Judgment and Persuasion.”
But the study, which looked at more than 6,000 house agents from across the country, found that the reputation of agents can be deceiving.
Among those who had worked in a profession for 20 years, the survey found that most people thought that they were trustworthy.
And more than 60 percent said they trusted their peers.
But the survey also found that agents were less trustworthy than the public at large.
The survey found, for example, that agents tended to think they were the most trusted because they had previously been paid well.
But more than half of agents surveyed said that they weren’t sure that their peers trusted them as much as they trusted them, and the survey showed that agents often felt that they didn’t have a lot of information about their peers, the WSJ found.
And that perception was more common among white agents than those who are African-American or Hispanic.
“It’s a perception that you’re trusted by the community, and that the community doesn’t trust you,” said Dolan.
The report also found some signs that the perception of trust can make agents feel more like victims.
For instance, when agents were asked to rate their perceptions of their peers’ trustworthiness, they often gave a negative rating.
And the more positive their perception was, the more they were likely to feel the need to give their peers a positive rating.
The study was based on data from more than 2,300 house agents, who answered questions about their perceptions and their trustworthiness.
Agents were asked about their experience and experiences with clients in general, including clients they had worked with.
The researchers asked agents whether they had ever been told that their clients had lied to them or been deceptive, and if so, whether they felt the need or felt comfortable telling their peers about it.
The findings: Most agents said that the way they dealt with clients who had made false allegations was “trivial.”
For example, 78 percent of agents said they’d handled a false allegation in which they knew that it was false and had not made a report to law enforcement.
But only 33 percent said that their response to a false accusation was “very trivial.”
And the number of times they’d heard a client say that they’d been wronged was more than five times the rate of other people.
The agents also said that when they received a client who had lied about a crime or misconduct, they felt more comfortable talking about it with their peers than they did if the client was a stranger.
“The sense that you’ve heard a story or heard something that’s false is much more powerful,” said John R. McBride, a law professor at the New York University School of Law and the author of the forthcoming book “The Law of the Unbiased Mind: A Guide for Professional Ethics.”
But this sense of powerlessness is not universal, and some agents said it made them more inclined to let their clients get away with things they would not otherwise have let happen.
“I wouldn’t say that I had a tendency to let people do whatever they wanted, or if they did, I didn’t tell them I was going to, because I was worried that they would say something,” said one agent who was black and had worked as a police officer in Texas.
“But I also knew that I was very comfortable with what I was doing.”
When asked about the way agents handled clients who were lying about crimes or misconduct when they were doing so, many said they believed they were entitled to do so, and they were more likely to trust their peers to do the right thing.
“There’s a tendency that when people get into a profession, that people get caught up in their own ego and not be able to see the bigger picture,” said McBride.
“And they think, Well, if I was a bad person, they’d be going after me and getting me.”
“If a client is a victim, you’re supposed to tell them to stop.
But if the victim is a perpetrator, then you’re not supposed to let them continue, and you should try to stop them,” said another agent.
“A lot of times, people feel a need to protect themselves.”
But even if an agent feels they are doing
