This is from a video game series (Ultima) which I played as kid in the '80s. In the game there are 8 virtues. Originally, pride is presented as a virtue, but as you play you come to see it is false and that humility is the real virtue. The 8 are derived from 3 principles: truth, love and courage. For computer geeks, these are like 3 bits that give you 8 different possibilities. Each combination of TLC gives you a distinct virtue (e.g. honor is a combination of truth and courage, while honesty is just truth).

All but spirituality; there's nothing wrong with spirituality, but I don't think of it as a virtue. And pride is a virtue in the sense that you take pride in doing something well, not in the sense of arrogant pride.

All but pride and spirituality, and I think that both of those can be virtues in the right context and applied in the right way.

All except pride. I only say that because pride is a vice more often than not. I can't say the same for the rest.

All, but pride, possibly justice

I'm not surprised that pride is low but I'm surprised it's as low as it is. I don't think there's anything wrong with taking pride in some accomplishment you've achieved.

Nothing wrong with it, but is it beneficial enough to be called a virtue? Or is it just a fleeting feel-good emotion?

Yeah, okay. That's a good point.
