Pride is a self-conscious emotion that elicits through self-evaluation around achievements due to one’s competence (hubristic) or effort (authentic). Across four studies, we show that experiencing hubristic pride enhances self-control more than authentic pride as it activates higher-level construal and leads people to act more in line with their long-term goals. The results provide insights into self-conscious emotions and construal level research, and give implications for marketers to benefit from the feeling of pride to boost product sales.
