IMPORTANCE OF INTEGRITY AND PLAGARISM The definition of Integrity (noun) in the Merriam-Webster dictionary is: 1: firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values: INCORRUPTIVILITY. 2 : an unimpaired condition. 3: the quality or state of being complete or undivided. Here is an example of the word being used on Merriam- Webster dictionary; the earthquake may have damaged the building’s structural integrity. All these are different definitions that explain what integrity is. My own definition is to do the right thing, to be honest and honor your values and morals. Having integrity helps you become a better person and have a healthy life style. As humans it is in our nature to be tempted to do the wrong things such as lie, cheat, and steal. But why do we do these things? Because it is the easy route. As humans we have become lazy looking for the easiest way to make money then we lie to protect ourselves or the ones we love. We cheat to make our lives easier. That’s why we can not trust one another because we know what we are capable of doing. We come up with all these insecurities and questions. Are we good people? Can I trust my co-workers? Questions like this can be avoided if people had integrity if they honored their word if they did the right thing and not be corrupted by other that lack discipline. As a soldier Integrity is one of the army values it means to do the right thing all the time even when no one is looking and even when you are not at work.
