Integrity as personality style: Better not like Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg?

Integrity is not a personality style, but an indication of what ultimately we are able to do with our personality and why not. This is shown by the example Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg.

What is integrity?

Integrity itself is a combination of different factors. This includes:

  • reliability
  • conscientiousness
  • Motivation

It is therefore a psychological dimension that is composed of different psychological aspects.

Whoever lies ...

The interesting thing about it is the following: It doesn't matter whether someone is going to
Example in the workplace shows aggressive behavior, or whether he
It doesn't take the break times so exactly - whoever even takes one

behaves with integrity.

Apparently, integrity is what is hidden behind the term
the answer to the question of how ready a person is
Crossing boundaries - or how little it is on the other hand

so it does not matter if others are too bad

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg

A very good example of a person described as an occasional grabber is Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg - the former
German defense minister, who stumbled upon the plagiarism affair in connection with his doctoral thesis and ended up being
Lost office. That Guttenberg had the urge to do something special
be, could already be determined in interviews with him - he has it
namely not very discreetly hidden.

There was a visit to Afghanistan, for example, which was staged almost like a television show and which some media consequently referred to as the Guttenberg show.
The baron didn't just fly to Afghanistan and talk to them

You have to admit, of course, that Guttenberg is one for one
Politician had a very charismatic demeanor. But most of all it was
Not least because of the show in the Hindu Kush, it was evident that Guttenberg's external impact was very important.

The plagiarism scandal as an example of lack of integrity

As of the beginning of 2011 the suspicions regarding
of his doctoral thesis were publicly discussed, he initially denied everything. In terms of crisis management, that turned out to be simply catastrophic.

Because his public image was so important to him, he spoke up
again and again in the form of rationalizations. This term stands
in psychology for the fact that what has been experienced retrospectively makes sense
appearing explanations can be assigned.

In Guttenberg's case, this was expressed in such a way that he explained the alleged plagiarism that he had used different data carriers in different places and that in the end he simply got confused about which content was from him and which
came from others.

Rights and rules apply only to others?

In addition, his family had put a lot of pressure on him. All together, this is an example of massive rationalization attempts, which presumably represent an integrity dimension of his personality. At the same time, he expressed his conviction that he had certain special rights.

The case clearly shows how one is able to believe
He is entitled to everything and rights and rules only apply to the others - but not to him. The pronounced narcissism alone would not be sufficient as an explanation in the Guttenberg case. In addition, there were rationalization strategies with regard to one's own handling
like trivializing and justifying.
