The Perception of Pride in Context

Often marginalized groups engage in pride displays in an effort to boost moral within their group and to gain support from majority group members. Previous research has revealed two dimensions of pride: a) authentic or genuine pride; and b) hubristic or arrogant pride. However, recent literature suggests that the expression of pride is a single emotion, but the perception of authentic and hubristic pride as distinct is driven by contextual factors. The current research sought to examine the impact of situational context on majority group members' perceptions of a pride display. Participants (N=60) watched one of two videos of a group pride display with either protesters or supporters in the background. Results indicated no significant relationship between the protest/support conditions and perceptions of pride. However, some marginally significant relationships emerged between protest/support conditions and perceived deservingness and willingness to support the group.
