Integrity is living by your highest values. It is being honest and sincere. Integrity helps you listen to your conscience, to do the right thing and to tell the truth. You act with integrity when your words and actions match.
Truthfulness is being honest in your words and actions. You don't tell lies even to defend yourself. Don't listen to gossip or prejudice. See the truth for yourself. Don't try to be more that you are to impress others. Be yourself, your true self.
There is always the tendency to view big issues in the context of good and evil; inevitably followed by figuring out "who is to blame," rather than saying, 'Here is the problem we face, what are our choices, and what is the best choice?'
Trustworthiness is being worthy of trust. People can count on you to do your best, to keep your word, and to follow through on your commitments. You do what you say you will do. Trustworthiness is a key to success in anything you do.
Honesty is being truthful and sincere. It is important because it builds trust. When people are honest, they can be relied on not to lie, cheat, or steal. Being honest means that you accept yourself as who you are. When you are open and trustworthy, others can believe in you.
