Westerners speaking Chinese while in China

I am a Businessman visiting China perhaps twice a year (Wo ai Zhonggou) I am always amazed at the "wow" response I get, when I use some pretty basic Mandarin, learnt through the Pinyin system.
It make me wonder, how many Businessmen visit China, and do not even try to learn even some basic Mandarin, just as a matter of politeness.

What do Chinese people think?

It is  hard to say how long it takes to trust a person by 100 percent.But if  you want oters to be trustworthy to you ,you should be honest and  to them first.

I am not someone who will trust easily.It takes me along time to trust someone. I cant measure that in months or years.To be honest, even myself is confuse on how can I give my trust. what about you?'s raelly hard to say ,you should know he/she clearly,if he/she is a good guy,of course,you can trust him/her,at least,he/she won't betrayed you.But you cannt see the surface of a human being,just use your heart to sense others
