It depends on if this person had a tendency to tell the truth or not.

What she said. But I'm more inclined to trust someone who is really smart. That's why it irritates me when poloticians use the word 'elitest'.

I think a less intelligent person.

A very intelligent person could much more easily take advantage of a situation, or manipulate somebody.

Someone smarter than you can outsmart you. DUH.

A person who is willing to take advantage of the situation is more likely to do so. It doesn't really matter whether they're smart or not.

That.

Neither.
I'm more inclined to trust someone if they were trust-worthy, smart or not.

I'm only inclined to trust someone if they have proven to me that rhey are trustworthy, regardless of their intelligence. I've had people from both groups prove to be trustworthy and very untrustworthy.

I don't think intelligence and trustworthiness are mutually exclusive.

Not exactly, but I don't trust people more intelligent than me much - I'd be worried that they'd try to manipulate me for something (not sure what, but still).

smart people will take advantage of you
