Jessica Tracy: Does The Deadliest Sin Pave The Way For Success? says
The phrase “pride comes before a fall” is often uttered as a warning to someone who is feeling confident or as a way to explain failure. Is this really an accurate analysis of the effects of hubris? Pride’s dark side is well known, but psychologist Jessica Tracy argues that pride is also essential for helping us become our best, brightest selves. By making us care about how others see us and how we see ourselves, pride makes us strive for excellence. With moderation and in the right contexts, it has been proven to boost creativity, motivate altruism, and confer status and power on those who display it. Tracy explains why we came to feel pride and how we can make this double-edged emotion serve us—rather than the other way around.
