1. One may trust someone w/o necessarily believing that they will do
what they say. Examples too numerous to list them all come to mind.

If one actively disbelieves they will do as they say, and thinks he
has good reason for that disbelief, then, of course, the situation
might be different.

Few things in life are black and white, 100% vs 0%.

I don't use the word "belief" much; I prefer ""trust." So I reallly
get tangled up in your closing sentence.
