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.
