Proud to Belong Or Proudly Different? Contrasting Effects of Incidental Pride on Conformity

We show that pride can either increase or decrease conformity depending on lay theories of achievement (entity/incremental). Those who attribute achievement to personal traits (entity theorists) tend to feel hubristic pride, and are less likely to conform than those who attribute achievement to effort (incremental theorists), who feel authentic pride.
