But mired within the definition of integrity is that of morality, and one simply cannot have morality separate from society. Morality by definition involves other people, morality by definition changes from person to person, and morality itself is a value judgement.

One cannot truly answer question 5 separately from societal constructs, it's centered in societal construct.
I suppose if you really were to answer outside of society construct you'd have to answer right in the middle...meaning you don't care...but it's plain as day that you're a highly moral person bumble. You clearly highly value integrity.

Hi cavernio.

I should probably have made some of the statements more precise.

What I mean by question 5 is how important it is to you to not have to put up with people talking s**t to you (or perhaps just having to greet people you do not like) because your survival depends on them (for instance coworkers with a higher position than you at work). When people are in a position where they can "freely" mock/taunt you without you being able to give back, that is where I say your integrity gets "hit" (you do not act the way you really feel you should because you are "on a leash"). But if you had been independent of that person survival-wise (you are for instance not, because you need the money), you could have given back, saving your integrity.

You have to value the group more than your integrity to put up with it for a longer period of time.

5. "Usually, I do not care very much about my integrity/being independent of others."

When you have answered with 5 numbers you add them together. The result of the addition is your score.

My prophecy is that these statements hit spot on enough for you to disagree quite strongly with them! Let the poll and experiment begin!


I don't understand what you mean by #5. Do you mean I don't care about having integrity (I don't care if I'm dishonest and inconsistent and untrustworthy)? Do you mean I have no problem with being independent and different from others? Or do you mean something else I don't get?

On all the others I have a 0 or 1. I don't get/understand this one. I care a LOT about being honest and doing what is right and being trustworthy--If I say I will do something, I try very hard to do it. However, I prefer to be independent and do things by myself, and rarely notice that others are around if they are not family. I don't particularly care if other people think I am weird (which they usually do, for what seem to me to be perfectly normal things). So, the two halves of question 5 contradict each other and/or don't go together, unless I am mis-reading the question.

Oh the paragraph you quoted above was in response to bumble's answer saying that she answered everything independent of societal constructs. I don't see anything wrong or disadvantageous to you (qawer) having used them in your question.
But yes, I did find 5 a bit confusing. Even with your explanation though, I still don't think integrity's the right word to use. I think it's fully within the realm of the definition of integrity, my morals, could involve keeping everyone else happy and that will make me the happiest, such that I will personally feel better about myself, such that I would even feel proud, if I allow a higher up to taunt me.
But I suppose that's why you used the word independence there.

Yes but my morality developed somewhat separately from society. It went it's own route as one area where my development was different (advanced) as a child was moral development. It was basically years above that of my age. So my morals are not always in agreement with society. My morals support more the rights of the individual. I care about individual feelings, freedoms and sometimes this can go against the interests of society itself, as in order to support the rights of the individual I would agree with civil unrest and protest against society if it were required.

What I tend to prefer though is the most peaceful solution possible, or that which has the most benefit with the least harm as I don't like to think of or see living critters (be they animal or human) suffering (despite my anger with people who have bullied me in the past...as much as I think I would like ram their head into the nearest wall at times because they have caused me much pain, I doubt I would enjoy such a thing in reality).

My morals are also not black and white or absolute. They are relative. So what is immoral in one situation or context can be moral to me in another one.

Ie To lie for greed or to harm another I would say is immoral as it can cause harm. To lie to protect a friend from being harmed by an abusive partner say is not immoral.

I prefer to to be honest and upfront where I can, but I would lie to save a life or protect the safety of someone I love, but it depends highly on what I am protecting them from and why!

As I said, basically most effective or beneficial results with the least amount of harm.

It's just I am emotionally traumatised by seeing people hurt, beaten, maimed, tortured etc so tend to avoid that kind of thing where possible (kinky sex play does not count, its consensual, no one is being hurt...hopefully...not in a way that is genuinely harming them...hopefully and if they are it crosses the line into abuse anyway and that is not a good thing, usually). I had nightmares after reading about Sylvia Marie Likens. I still can't believe what they did to that girl now. I couldn't sleep properly for days. Ergo I avoid such nasties where possible otherwise I only upset myself too much.

I was also labelled as over sensitive and too idealistic when I was growing up.

The only one I slightly agreed with was number 4, the others I totally disagreed with.

2% above 20.
56% with max 5.

I think the test is better than some people might think.
