I hate the "It depends" answer too.....I'm trying to figure out whether i can use this as "arsenal" to "quantify" my "integrity/trust". I want to show all schools that i'm applying (H/W/GSB) to this Fall to be able to see me a a person with loads of integrity/trust. I've got 2 other good examples but want to use this as a "backdrop".........
Can you ask your supervisor to refer to this aspect of your review in his letter of rec and exlain the scale?
Unless you are specifically asked a question about integrity, I am leery of submitting an essay saying "Look how honest I am!" I agree with the friend of ours who once told his son, "If anyone ever insists he is honest or you can trust him, hold onto your wallet -- tight." But, if a recommender comments positively on your integrity and trustworthiness in a rec, that's something else entirely and very positive. And clearly if you are responding to a question, referring to this aspect of your company's review process could be relevant.
