In this week’s episode of The Feelings Lab, we discuss the emotion of pride. Join returning hosts Dr. Alan Cowen, Dr. Dacher Keltner, Danielle Krettek-Cobb and Matt Forte with our guest Cassidy Lichtman, a professional volleyball player for Athletes Unlimited, a Chairperson of the Volleyball Player Executive Committee, and former member of the USA Volleyball Women’s National Team.
Learn the difference between authentic and hubristic pride, how prideful energy motivates, and how the pressure to sustain glory and triumph can destroy reputations. And yes, gorillas do beat their chest in celebratory pride.
Begin by hearing Dr. Dacher Keltner explains how pride helps us to find our “place” in society.
