The word integrity comes from the Greek word “integritas” and “integra” meaning whole.  Integrity is defined by as the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or professional standards.

In other words, integrity has to do with the ability to stick to sound moral principles in every situation. A man of integrity stands firmly on what he believes is right and he will never change for any reason.


  1. Probity: This simply means absolute moral soundness. A man of integrity has a sound moral character which cannot be faulted by anyone around. He is never found in any shady or dubious business, he does not cheat in business, sell fake or expired drugs to others in order to make money
  2. Contentment: Integrity makes a man to be contented. Contentment is a feeling of being satisfied with one’s present possession while working towards a better future.
  3. Truthfulness: This is an act of speaking the truth always. It is a state of not deceiving others for his own selfish reasons. He speaks the truth and stands by it and always ready to suffer for the trust.
  4. Fair play: A man of integrity puts himself in other people’s shoes whenever he is relating with them.
  5. Non-compromise of principles: Men of integrity will never agree to give bribe to escape punishment or get favour from anyone.
