Honesty refers to a facet of moral character and denotes positive, virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, and straightforwardness along with the absence of lying, cheating, or theft. In psychology two theories of honesty exist. First, the 'Will' hypothesis in which honesty comes from the active resistance of temptation and links to the controlled cognitive processes that enable delay in regard to reward.

Second, the 'Grace' hypothesis in which honesty comes from the absence of temptation and links to research upon the presence or absence of automatic processes in determining behavior. Most people tend to favor the Will hypothesis. However, functional imaging and reaction time research supports the Grace hypothesis since individuals who are honest in a situation in which they can lie showed no sign of engaging additional controlled cognitive processes.

As we know integrity is a part of honesty but integrity is also a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions. Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy, in that it regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs.

The word 'integrity' stems 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. As such, one may judge that others 'have integrity' to the extent that they act according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.

A value system's abstraction depth and range of applicable interaction may also function as significant factors in identifying integrity due to their congruence or lack of congruence with observation. A value system may evolve over time while retaining integrity if those who espouse the values account for and resolve inconsistencies.

Honesty and integrity are co related terms. Honesty means the act of being honest to something or somebody. Honest means giving the actual and real facts. It means to say the truth and be free of any kind of bad vice. Honesty means to not to hide anything and be open about it. The act of honesty is always rewarded. People trust and respect a person who is honest to other people. Integrity on the other hand means abiding and supporting your morals and ethics. It means to be free of any malpractices. It means to treat others with humanism. People with no morals in life lack integrity. People only respect those who have a sound belief.

Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Integrity is knowing the rules and expectations and following them every where that you go. Honesty is speaking the truth no matter who you are speaking with or if you think they know the truth or not.
