Say this for Peter Drucker: He has always known his own mind. He calls this kind of self-knowledge "intellectual integrity." It is one of his favorite phrases (see story). But of course for him the term also has a moral dimension.

integrity? Describes.... "...the ability to see the world as it is, not
as you want it to be," Drucker elucidates. How does one display that
kind of integrity? "By asking, especially when taking on office: What is
the foremost need of the institution—and therefore my first task and
duty?"..."Drucker purified my mind. He would tell me after each
session—don't tell me you had a wonderful meeting with me. Tell me what
you're going to do on Monday that's different."
