Dependability: n. trustworthiness and reliability

Dependability for humans basically means showing up on time after promising to do so, doing what you promised to do on time, and not lying to other humans.


If you are trustworthy and reliable then you are dependable and that is a very desirable moral characteristic to have in your personality for successful interactions with other humans. Your boss, coworkers, spouse, significant other, close friends, and other humans will probably respect and admire you because they can trust you and rely on you knowing that you are not unpredictable and will keep them guessing what you will do next.




Reliability means that you are highly predictable in your behavior and it doesn’t change in random ways always keeping a human guessing what you will do next.



Reliability also means a car, appliance, or other product which works well without glitches while it lasts and many think that reliability also means durability which means that the product lasts a long time without breaking down.


Someone who shows up to work on time and knows how to do the job well is an individual who is greatly sought after by all businesses and it is a sign of reliability. If you are also dependable then you probably will be respected and admired by your boss and coworkers because they will trust you fully.


Reliable: adj. expecting a subset(s) to achieve a goal(s) with no change for a relatively long duration
