Integrity and wrongdoing

Integrity is the qualifications of being honest and having strong moral principles, moral uprightness. It is generally a personal choice to hold oneself to consistent moral and ethical standards. In ethics, integrity is regarded by many people as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions. Integrity can stand in opposition to hypocrisy. The word integrity evolved from the Latin adjective integer, meaning whole or complete. In this context, integrity is the inner sense of “wholeness” deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character.

A wrong is an act that is illegal or immoral. Legal wrongs are usually quite clearly defined in the law of a state . They can be divided into civil wrongs and crimes in common law countries. So the act or an instance of doing something immoral or illegal is known as wrongdoing.
