Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations and outcomes. It is regarded as the quality of having an intuitive sense of honesty and truthfulness in regard to the motives for our actions. Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy in that it regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy, or alter their beliefs. See below for sample report.
