7 Years ago or so I went through an exercise exploring what I wanted to do for work. I really hated what I was doing. One of the activities was going through a value exercise where you choose your top 10 values from a list of 400+ options. I decided that I would rank them all and categorize them. My top value was Integrity, which I defined as “Being worthy of people’s trust and doing the right thing.”

I grouped these other value options under integrity:

  • Accountability
  • Trust
  • Trustworthiness
  • Dependability
  • honorable
  • Honesty
  • Honor
  • Truth
  • Timeliness
  • Punctuality
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Reliability
  • Loyalty
  • Worthiness
  • Credibility
  • Consistency
  • Reputation
  • Ethics
  • Resilience
  • Recognition
  • Sincerity
Now I’ve recently taken the VA Institute on Character’s strengths test. Out of 24 strengths, they ranked Honesty as my top strength. In the their definition, they interchangeably mention integrity as well. There is definitely potential bias into how I see myself versus reality, but it was validating to get it again. DefinitionIntegrity [authenticity, honesty]: The strength of integrity is manifested by speaking the truth and presenting oneself in a genuine way. A person of integrity is open and honest about his or her own thoughts, feelings, and responsibilities, being careful not to mislead through either action or omission. This strength allows one to feel a sense of ownership over one’s own internal states, regardless of whether those states are popular or socially comfortable, and to experience a sense of authentic wholeness.
