Integrity is who are when nobody is watching. That’s kind of scary isn’t it? The statement gets one to thinking, “ Am I a different person when no one is around? Do I put on a different mask for the public?” I think all of us do this a little bit with things like our clothing and shoes. Those things are probably quickly changed when you are home because you want to be comfortable in your own home.

Let’s take a look at the definition of Integrity. Integrity is the ability to execute moral conventions and uphold the truth.

A person of Integrity is on who abides by rules and does the right thing when he knows he is not being watched, integrity is seen in peoples actions.

Personal Integrity is the quality of being honest with yourself and others. One develops personal integrity by examining their beliefs and taking steps to behave consistently with their moral code. Reflect on you’re interactions with others at home, in social situations, and in the workplace. Identify the aspects of you’re behavior that are in need of change. Make a list of these behaviors and work on them one step at a time.

Practice truthfulness, respect others and the property of others. Respect the human rights of others. Respect open-mindedness. Listen to the opinions of others. Help others in need. Assess you’re progress on a daily basis until you find that you are living a life that is consistent with you’re moral code.

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters” – Albert Einstein

Are You a Person of Integrity?

(Take this ‘True or False’ self-evaluation and decide for yourself.)

I always try to do what is right, even when it is costly or difficult.

I am true to myself.

I don’t compromise my values by giving into temptation.

  1. I really enjoyed this piece. I love postings that lead people to think about themselves, their values and about personal growth. It’s my passion, to be the best you that you can be and to help people to discover that with in themselves as well.


  2. Costly or difficult….hmmn. I wish that I researched companies more before I bought their products. No idea if my clothes were made by child laborors, or if my shampoo was tested on animals. I try to make a positive impression on the world and on the people I know. I think that’s all one can ask of anybody.
