Social trust is the main capital of any society, ignoring it constitutes distance from a healthy society and thus increase in distrustfulness.

Statistical population of this research(survey) are individuals from 15 to 64 years residing in Yazd and Ahwaz which among them a sample of 600 subjects were selected by cluster sampling. Results suggest that there is a significant relation between cultural duality and social distrustfulness. This means that if traditional and modern values simultaneously appear in individuals’ behaviors and their social actions, consequently distrustfulness increases. Data shows that maximum amount of social distrust in environmental and institutional aspects are more than other aspects and this amount among Yazd citizens is higher than Ahwaz citizens.

Overall, results of present study show that, cultural duality is one of the factors of increasing distrust in interactive, social and political arenas.
