Evidence For Two Faces of Pride in Consumption: Findings From Luxury Brands

This paper shows that consumers experience two different facets of pride (authentic and hubristic) from consumption, but that these are activated differentially by luxury and non-luxury brand acquisition. Further, we examine how both momentary and chronic feelings of each pride facet can shape consumers’ desire to purchase different brands, and how inferences about these feelings in others can shape interpersonal judgments.
