Characteristics of Integrity

Commitment of your self to character over personal gain.
You yourselves are our witnesses--and so is God--that we were devout and honest and faultless toward all of you believers. -  1 Thessalonians 2:10 
Value people over things and stop valuing things over people.
“I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or clothes. “You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my own needs and to the men who were with me..." - Acts 20:30-34

"Here I stand. Testify against me in the presence of the LORD and his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Whose donkey have I taken? Whom have I cheated? Whom have I oppressed?   From whose hand have I accepted a bribe to make me shut my eyes? If I have done any of these things,  I will make it right."      - 1Samuel 12:3

Live by principles over convenience.
You say, "I am allowed to do anything"--but not everything is good for you. And even though "I am allowed to do anything," I must not become a slave to anything. - 1 Cor 6:12

Render service over power.
But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. “For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.
Luke 22:26-27

Quality of Integrity

Faithfulness. Your attitudes to service. 
But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house. Numbers 12:7

For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. - Mathew 32:12

In the same way you younger men must submit to your elders; and all of you must gird yourselves with humility towards one another, for God sets Himself against the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
1 Peter 5:5-6

Honest communication
Let no one despise your youth, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me,- John 14:30

Let integrity be your best friend and a friend to your friends. Remember, a man without Integrity is a Failure and a man who has Integrity is always loved and encourages and will turn out to be an effective leader.

As for you,
if you will walk before Me as your father David walked, in integrity of heart and uprightness, doing according to all that I have commanded you and will keep My statutes and My ordinances, then I will establish the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever, just as I promised to your father David, saying, ‘You shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.’-1 Kings 9:4-5
