The Perception of Pride in Marginalized Groups

Previous research suggests that pride displays that are perceived as authentic may benefit marginalized groups by generating support from majority group members. Two factors have emerged that play a role in the perception of pride: deservingness and inclusiveness. Specifically, research suggests that believing a group is deserving of pride and feeling welcomed into the group predicts both perceptions of authenticity and willingness to engage in proactive support for the group (Ratcliff & Krolikowski, 2012). The current research aims to extend this work by distinguishing between attributions of authentic and hubristic pride and participants general evaluations of the group (i.e., positive vs. negative); effort and ability attributions from perceived social value; and by examining the relationships between hubristic and authentic pride and overstated pride vs. appropriate pride, respectively. Additionally, participants actual proactive behavioral responses will be measured (e.g., signing a petition). Results and implications will be discussed.
