If trust is an all-or-nothing proposition than I trust no one but God. As far as I know there are varying levels of trust and if one understands that basic human nature is not good, trusting others is a matter of degree not an all-or-nothing deal. I trust my wife but I don't trust her as I do God. I trust my neighbor to a certain extent but nowhere near the level I trust a friend that I've known for decades. Biblical understanding of human nature makes not fully trusting others normal. There is no place for hyper-skepticism though because it is not based on evidence or experience.
