The article explains that the healthy pride does not necessarily mean arrogance or an excessive sense of superiority. Rather, healthy pride relates to a person’s acting pro-socially – encouraging and galvanizing others. The unhealthy pride, on the other hand, often relates to a person’s actions that are generally deemed antagonistic and anti-social. This kind of pride usually requires outside confirmation and approval. It is a cover up for an inner feeling of inadequacy.

Pride often relates to the ego’s desire for attention. People who are filled with this kind of pride say and do things that will draw other’s attention to them. They also resent it when their accomplishments or acts of service are not acknowledged and recognized. They may lie or embellish a story to make themselves look better in the eyes of others.
