Since ego and pride are rather linked, and their definitions are so similar, it can be difficult to figure out exactly how they are different. However, a simple way to consider ego and pride is this: ego is rather selfish and often has no basis in fact while pride tends to be less selfish and is typically based on the facts of a person's achievements and qualities. Some people think of ego as self-respect. While it can lead to a sense of self-respect, it too often leads to arrogance instead.

The words ego and pride are so close in meaning and so interrelated that sometimes it becomes difficult to differentiate between them. If you ask a person the difference between these two concepts, he will in all probability draw a blank which is why this article, by highlighting the subtle differences between ego and pride will enlighten you on the subject.

Some people think of ego as self respect. Though it is true in some cases, it can too often lead to arrogance which even the person may be unaware of. Ego is a feeling of being superior to others. It originates in mind and has often no relation with reality. Ego in simple terms can be referred to as I, ME, and Myself. A person who is all the time thinking about himself has a larger ego than a person who is concerned about others as well.

Pride is a feeling of satisfaction arising from what one has done or achieved. It is a sense of accomplishment that is healthy and good for a person and motivates him to be doing better all t ...more

First one is feeling proud for doing something and later one is purely self judgement/ thinking on an issue.
