Is there another word for 'quality of soul'.

I need to use this word to write about a person having 'bad culture' or having bad 'quality of soul'

please can you edit your question to include a full sentence where you will use this word. –  Matt Эллен Mar 12 '12 at 13:05
I think this question is far too vague. Neither "quality of soul" nor "bad culture" convey any specific human attribute which might be more precisely identified by some single word. Unless OP can provide a clear definition of what he means, there can't really be an unambiguously correct "answer". –  FumbleFingers Mar 12 '12 at 13:43
'quality of soul' is, pardon the expression, definitely vague, just like its 'character' or 'reputation'. It is a vague concept. –  Mitch Mar 12 '12 at 14:52
This question is impossible to answer without making enormous assumptions about what the OP is really asking. OP, I hope you can edit the question to be more specific. Judging from past performance alone, I went ahead and voted to close though. –  tenfour Mar 12 '12 at 14:52

Maybe it goes in the direction of "Karma"?

I believe character or nature is appropriate.

If these seem too general and you need fine specificity I suggest you describe what you mean directly.

'reputation' is a similar way of talking about a person's quality of behavior. –  Mitch Mar 12 '12 at 14:53
