How Selfish are you?

But actually I was long too much of a nice guy and neglected my own interests, which is bad. I have learnt the importance of focusing on my own wellbeing, instead of hoping that other people would.
We are all individuals and are egoist to some degree. But we are also social animals, and I think that almost everyone have some altruism in them.

I agree with this. Depends on what we are talking about. There are things I'll give up without hesitation BUT there are others that I don't want to share with any one! I guess that'd put me as same as others.

There are times however when I look at other people and feel the need to help them somehow in someway. I think a part of me wants to help others because to me it feels good. I mean there are moments when I think about how I wish I could make other people feel better or have better lives. Other than that I just go back to my selfish ways.

feelin the same way bout this question. i can be selfish and decide to give myself the bigga slice of cake. but if were talkin do i think bout myself and disregard othas, then no. my fam will always cum first. my friends high up there too.
as of late, the area im most selfish is sexually...focusin on me. this doesnt mean i dont consider my partner and want to pleasure them in all ways. i think its healthy to have some degree of selfishness to make sure ya dont forget bout yaself.
i really dont wanna sit there and think, no, thats ok, ya can cum first...all the time...and sit there resentin someone. so maybe its not bein selfish but bein more assertive.
