Moral integrity is associated with psychological well-being[1] and higher life satisfaction[5]. Character and personal integrity comprise the core strengths of self-reliant individuals. The self-reliant individual forms healthy, interdependent relationships with others at work, facilitating health and work performance[2]. Research suggests that authentic people with integrity are well-liked, and they benefit from social support and the many other positive outcomes associated with enjoying close relationships with others[4]. The "knowing thyself" component of integrity allows us to be more effective in our lives[3].
