The government did a lot of efforts to increase the trust of regulations. However, despite the various efforts of the government, the level of people’s regulatory trust is not much improved. One of the reasons why regulatory trust does not improve is that regulatory trust may be influenced by individual's social trust level and social tendency. Therefore, this study aims to examine whether regulatory trust is affected by individual's level of trust and social tendency. Based on a survey of 1,000 people, we examined whether individual trust levels and social tendency influence the level of regulatory trust.
The results showed that gender, age, government trust, views on the future of the country, trust in corporation, recognition of internationalization, and political attitudes affected regulatory trust. Trust in regulation can vary depending on the degree of trust that individuals generally have in countries and companies, and in recognition of internationalization, regardless of the content of the regulation itself. Regulatory trust is not just a matter of regulation itself, but a factor that can vary depending on society's perception and individual's social disposition. This results suggests that to increase regulatory trust there is a need to approach problems at a higher level, for example, to increase the credibility of society as a whole.
