Integrity

« Glossary Index

Integrity is that view of self does not lie to your inner spirit. It is “truth to self,” or authenticity.

Acting with integrity means understanding, accepting, and choosing to live in accordance with one’s principles, which will include honesty, fairness, and decency. A person of integrity will consistently demonstrate good character by being free of corruption and hypocrisy.

Integrity is revealed when people act virtuously regardless of circumstance or consequences. This often requires moral courage. Indeed, integrity is the critical connection between ethics and moral action.

Integrity also implies that your actions are consistent with your inner spirit, that you do not make moral claims of belief or ethical stances that are inconsistent with behavior.

Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching”

C S Lewis
