    Oh! I wrote one huge hub on that recently..smile
    For me it is an internal journey where I am integrated as a person and there is no conflict with my internal belief system and my actions ..smile

    To adhere to a set of morals, or principles, in a complete and undivided way. Regardless of the opinions of those around you, and without compromise to get along, or get ahead.

    I've always taken integrity to mean congruency between words and actions.


    BEING your word.

      I am impressed also.

      Integrity is something nobody can take from you. Yet it is a choice to be a person of integrity. Having integrity means you can hold your head up and stand tall no matter what.

    Integrity is doing the right thing whether or not anyone is watching you.

    Like sofs, I wrote a Hub on integrity once too (but a long time ago). 

    Anyway, to me it's being trustworthy, "solidly of good character", honest, and always trying to do what one thinks is the right thing to do (in terms of having "good character").  Respecting and caring about others (in any number of ways) is a big part of integrity too.  I think, provided integrity isn't accompanied by the less appealing trait, self-righteousness, it may be one of the biggest sources of having good self-esteem, no matter what other flaws/weaknesses a person has.  It also (most of the time) makes life a lot less complicated, because it makes a person feel solid and strong, provides a guidepost for choices, but also means a person can just be himself and not worry about having any questionable actions "found out".    One other note about integrity:  The nice thing is it's available to anyone who chooses to have it/use it.  Other positive things in life (character-wise, personality-wise, looks-wise) are sometimes a matter of luck-of-the-draw.  Integrity (one of the most important, useful, and self-esteem-building things there are) is something anyone can have - just for the deciding to have it.
