a. You are a bit too quick to dismiss.

b. Do not be so quick to dismiss.

c. You have a tendency to trust.

d. You trust too much.

Are the above sentences grammatically correct?

I think 'dismiss' and 'trust' are transitive verbs and need an object. I don't think they can be used without an object.

There is another thread about this issue, but I didn't really find it helpful. I think verbs such as 'smoke', 'read', and 'eat' can be both transitive and intransitive. However, I am not sure that 'dismiss' and 'trust' can be used intransitively.
