Handbook of Management Scales/Integrity
Integrity (alpha = 0.87/0.85)[edit | edit source]
Description[edit | edit source]
Three facets of trustworthiness were measured based on scales designed by Mayer/Davis (1999) to assess the ability, benevolence, and integrity of a supervisor. The Likert-type scale ranged from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree).
Definition[edit | edit source]
Integrity reflects an adherence to a set of acceptable principles or a set of shared values.
Items[edit | edit source]
- My supervisor has a strong sense of justice. (Omitted from analysis)
- I never have to wonder whether my supervisor will stick to his/her word.
- My supervisor tries hard to be fair in dealing with others. (Omitted from analysis)
- My supervisor’s actions and behaviors are not very consistent.
- I like my supervisor’s values.
- Sound principles seem to guide my supervisor’s behaviors.
Two items were omitted from the original scale as they were related to fairness.
