The emerging body of research that explores the implications of pride to individuals and organizations has yet obtained conclusive results. Adopting a functional and evolutionary perspective of emotion, this study unpacks such a black box by examining how pride, as a dual-facet construct which comprises of authentic pride and hubristic pride, may be related to job performance in an ambivalent manner through knowledge hiding. We also test the moderating effect of psychological safety in governing the indirect relationships. Results of a field study provided support for the mediating role of knowledge hiding in the positive relationship between authentic pride and performance, and the negative relationship between hubristic pride and performance. Further, psychological safety was found to strengthen the indirect effect of authentic pride on performance. Our findings are summarized along with discussion on theoretical contributions and practical implications.
