If you change the word trust to belief your psychological profile improves

I think an habit of questioning and review of all the facts - even well established ones - is a very good way to live.

We are going to witness more and more - established norms are already breaking down to some extent. The markets are a good example. That said I think most of the changes are the inside (as in inner being) at the moment - most of the scientists are busy looking outwards though and I think perhaps they are missing the fun - even if they are telling the truth.
