no cognitive dissonance here…
Recently I was asked a favour by an acquaintance. Our mutual friends had recommended she ask me. They think I have ‘Integrity‘, so she could trust me to do as I say. Should I be more flattered by this direction or more concerned at the number of people that weren’t recommended for having integrity.
Wikipedia describes integrity as:
the inner sense of “wholeness” deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. As such, one may judge that others “have integrity” to the extent that they act according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold
Well this explains why I’m happy being single, I’ve already got an inner sense of wholeness!
