Dependability means that you are worthy of reliance or trust. (Play video)
Dependability means you are responsible, capable of being counted on. When you are dependable, people count on you to do what you say, take care of what you are responsible for, and are trustworthy.
Dependability means fulfilling what is promised, even if it requires unexpected sacrifice. Whether it is doing your job at home, at school or on the football field, if others know they can count on you to get the job done, you quickly move into the category of “most valuable player.”
Another word for dependable is reliable. Being reliable often leads to beneficial recognition, whether in the form of praise, extra privileges, compliments, and other forms of positive reinforcement.
