Dignitophylum (dignity). Students of this type are proud, intolerant to any form of humiliation by an individual or entity, and are ready to give up their position, possessions, family, and even their own life in the name of dignity, integrity, and honor. "Honor above all" is their motto. Dignitophylums are not arrogant like egophylums; their pride is noble. Together with liberophylums, they act in a yin and yang relationship to counterbalance naturally any form of authoritarian power.
This type of student embodies the oriental culture. The samurai and Hwarang would fall into this category. This type believes in death before dishonor. Admiral Boorda, the Chief of Naval Operations in the 1990's (the highest position in the Navy), had one of his military awards questioned. There was some question as to whether he had actually earned it. On the day he was to be interviewed about it, he committed suicide. He believed he had disgraced the Navy. Later it was found that he was indeed entitled to wear the award.
