PRIDE

A conscious emotion characterized by the attainment of a goal and that accomplishment resulting in recognition and approval from others in the group. Pride differs from similar emotions like joy and happiness as these can be experienced without anyone else's approval. The excess of pride can have a deleterious effect on others in the group, sometimes leading to resentment.

PRIDE: "Abdullah felt a sense of pride after his paper earned him a high grade in his class."
