2. Integrity and Authenticity
A commitment and ability to act with sincerity, honesty and integrity.
This item is partly about values one has identified with and is committed to practicing, but it is also strongly related to personal maturity. In order to be capable of acting with sincerity, honesty and integrity, a person has to be keenly aware of his or her inner processes (reactions, emotions, identifications, see the item Self-awareness below) as well as having a robust self-sense that is not easily threatened and thereby giving the person an ability to be appropriately vulnerable.
