Mark Driscoll gave this pride test as part of his sermon on Luke 14:7-11, the parable of the wedding feast.
  1. Do you long for a lot of attention?
  2. Do you become jealous or critical of people who succeed?
  3. Do you always have to win?
  4. Do you have a pattern of lying?
  5. Do you have a hard time acknowledging you were wrong?
  6. Do you have a lot of conflicts with other people?
  7. Do you cut in line at store, airport, on the freeway, etc.?
  8. Do you get upset when people do not honor your achievements?
  9. Do you tend more toward an attitude of entitlement or thankfulness?
  10. Do you honestly feel you are basically a good person and superior to others?

Scoring: Give one point for every “true” answer. If you scored 1-10, you are proud. If you scored 0, you are very proud!

How did you score? My score was off the charts.

Here is a video of Driscoll giving The Pride Test.
