    Speaking

    Is there a difference between two these sentences?
    - I trust you.
    - I believe you.
    Trust and Believe are the same meaning or not, if not, what difference?

    If you believe someone, then you accept that what they say is true.

    If you trust them, then you have faith in them, you think that they will do the right thing, or that they know what they're doing, or that they will do something that they have promised to do.


    You told me the earth is flat and I believe you.

    I'm going to jump off this wall and you said that you would catch me. I trust you, so I'm going to jump!
