Obviously here it’s more of textbook vs. opinion. The trusted professions are all based off of fact/research, while the untrusted ones all are not going to be on the same page. Like every teacher will teach that 2+2=4, but not every politician is going to be pro-choice and journalist are gonna frame stories in different ways making it hard for the public to decide which to believe and which not to believe. It’s all ethos.


Released by IPSOS MORI in June 2011, this poll of trust was so interesting. Finally I  remember to write about the pool. Here are the top 5 trusted profession

88% public across UK say they trust doctors tell the truth.
Sir Robert Worcester

“Ever since 1983, when we first started asking the public’s view of who they trust, more people have said they trust doctors than any other profession or occupation, and they remain so today. It just goes to show how much faith the public place in doctors. It will be interesting to see if the public’s trust in doctors is maintained following the proposed changes to their role in the reforms of the NHS.”

More interesting, if we see academic hierarchic, we can see that teachers beat professors in public trust 😀

The top 5 trusted profession are doctors, teachers, professors, judges and scientist. 



What about priest?
