My city. I would rather die for my city than die for my country.

I voted for myself because... well I'm me. And, I'll be damned if I didn't have any pride in who I am.

Country because, I like what the country stands for.

Heritage, being both asian and white. I'm proud of the mix races I'm from, from germany, to french, to korean. All have a spicy little history to it.

Friends because I enjoy my company and they are there to make me laugh and to help me through tough times.

Gender because I am a man, a manly man.

religon because its something very close to my heart.

and humanity, because, I'm human, and I'm proud of myself.

Yourself - Yes. I take pride in always trying to do the right thing and help people in need. Nobody else is going to think or act exactly like me so yeah i think that is something to take pride in.

Country - Yes and No. I depends what part of it your talking about.

Heritage - Yes. I'm about 1/3 Native American, and the rest is a mix of Polish, German, Irish, and Austrian.

Friends - Yes. I think a persons friends can tell you a lot about that person.

High School - I guess. Its a little better than the others around my area.

Ethnicity - If i did people would call me a racist.

I'm surprised. Only 56% of you take pride in who you are? If you're not proud of who you are, why don't you change?

[COLOR=orange]Yourself: You are in horrible condition if you take no pride in yourself, and who you are.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=orange]Country: If you take no pride in your county, why do you choose to remain there?[/COLOR]

[COLOR=orange]Culture: This is the same as taking pride in your country.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=orange]Heritage: This is a mix of the first three. It determines who you are.[/COLOR]

Friends: We all need good friends, even if they all have four legs. Without good companions, what good is living?

[COLOR=orange]Religion: If you don’t take pride in your religion, keep searching until you find one that does make you happy.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=orange]Occupation: If you don’t like your occupation, you are in the wrong job. You should do what you enjoy.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]Yourself: I forgot to check this, but I do agree. If you can't find the ability to have pride in your own self, how can you really find it possible to find pride in anything else?...

Country: Even if your Country is going down hill, you should look for what makes the country good and find pride in that. Look towards the past if you have to, what your Country originally stood for.

Heritage: If you can't seem to find it possible to have pride in what your own heritage is, then you're going to have a really fun life. Because that is going to be with you for all your life.

Friends: If you can't find it possible to show pride in your own friends, you'll end up a sad, alone person.

Religion: While there are many religions out there, one should follow at least one of them and have pride in what they are believing in.

College: If you're a college student (like me) then you should find pride within that, because if you don't it's not going to be a fun time at school, but also because with going to college you're getting yourself prepared for a better future.

Humanity: Something that I think everyone should have pride in, maybe not for all humanity, but if you can't find pride in humanity at all then you might as well not exist, because you're a human. Find pride in it :P[/COLOR]

Yourself - Are you proud of who you are?

No, I've sold out pretty much everything I've ever believed in on the understanding that at some point in the future it will advantage me in promotion towards the things I actually want to do.

Country - Do you take pride in your country?

No. I'm just here because of chance. It's a privileged position to be in but I don't take pride in it. It wasn't a major accomplishment for me to persist here for the past twenty years.

Culture - Do you take pride in your culture?

What culture? People talk about multiculturalism and so on, but it just translates into everyone retreating into their own enclaves and keeping as quiet as possible. The only time you really see British culture is when drunken louts are walking about or the football is on.

Heritage - Do you take pride in your heritage/family?

Not significantly, they're the product of chance. They're not a part of me, not something I have to live with. My heritage means no more to me than the little 'learn to read' books as a kid. Thinking about it, it actually means a hell of a lot less. So my grandfather went and fought a war, this one was an architect, that one joined the navy, that one was a high-ranked police officer. Big whoop.

I am proud of my father's accomplishments but that's because I know him and bear him some degree of affection.

Friends - Do you take pride in who your friends are?

No, I know that we're just friends because we live in roughly the same area and share similar outlooks on life. Birds of a feather and all that. I like them but in all honesty when we're finished with this stage of our lives we'll probably never see each other again.

Religion - Do you take pride in your religion?

I would if I could have one. Unfortunately I'm too rational to seriously entertain the relevant concepts. If god were to show me something that violated the laws of the universe, like a square circle, I'd be prepared to believe in him. Though there'd still be serious issues about the whole presence of evil in the world thing. Other than something that utterly crushes reason however I can't think of much that would convince me. Maybe world peace or magical glowing balls of energy that violated principles of conservation or something like that. If Jesus appeared at the end of my bed, something personal like that, I'd just write it off as a hallucination.

College - Do you take pride in your college/university?

God no. I'm just here so someone will rubber stamp a bit of paper at the end of the day.

High School - Do you take pride in your high school?

I only went for two years to pick up my A Levels since the exams were too expensive to buy otherwise. Most of it was spent sitting in a classroom to get the attendance while people screamed at the top of their lungs and the teacher wrote on the board and looked very tired with life.

Junior High School - Do you take pride in your junior high school (where you went to 7th and 8th grade)?

Didn't go.

Sports Teams - Do you take pride in your local sports teams?

No, I don't have anything to do with them.

Ethnicity - Do you take pride in your race/ethnicity?

No. Although I'm obviously pleased I didn't end up in a third world shit-hole, being happy and being proud aren't the same thing.

Gender - Do you take pride in your gender?

I'm pleased I didn't get shit-listed with a female body and gender norms but I don't really feel proud of it; it's chance.

Humanity - Do you take pride in Humanity?

These morons. Most of the people on earth are poorly educated wretches. Even among the relatively high standard of education provided in the West few of us begin to understand the technology we use, the political systems we live in or care for the responsibility we have. I'm gonna be proud of them?

Actually I guess I am. We're the greatest predators to ever walk the earth, the carrion kings of creation, and we're all part of that. It's our greatest testament, a scar carved into the world and each other. A sort of cultural tattoo.

Occupation - Do you take pride in your work?

I don't work.

Organizations - Do you take pride in your clubs/organizations?

To an extent. I like teaching people to do stuff with their hands, and some of our teachers are really good at what they do. On the other hand some of them are pricks and the leaders don't really have the political skill to set the system up to endure long beyond their own demise. Twenty years it's questionable whether they'll still be there.

Pride does not lead to happiness and humility is not a sin. I'm rather happy than proud myself.
