Your level of selfishness is 26%



Low level of selfishness. Your profile reveals a rather contained level of selfishness. This probably means that you are a person who likes to help others without neglecting their own needs. Selfishness is not a bad thing in principle. Indeed, sometimes it is a key feature to keep an emotional balance. You cannot always think of others before yourself. In a world as complex as ours we are obliged to take account of some of our (many!) individual needs. A healthy level of self-interest should be around 20-35%. Lower values ??suggest a altruism that is excessive and insincere, while values ??greater than 50% show a level of selfishness that is unhealthy.

Some of the questions were difficult to pick an answer, either because the question wording (i.e. "have you ever") which would include past actions even if they haven't been repeated for decades since, or because of the answer wording where more than one answer would be applicable.

Absolutely altruistic! Your score suggests you are an extremely caring person. Being very altruistic does not automatically mean being good people, as you well know. Like all human behaviour, even an altruistic attitude is subject to unhealthy extremes. We therefore hope that your low level of selfishness results from your way of being spontaneous and free from social, cultural or political conditioning. In short, we hope that you get true pleasure from giving to others and that it is not only alleviate guilt, or even worse to be appreciated by others. Congratulations anyway for your philanthropic spirit, the world needs a lot more people like you... Write us if you enjoyed this test.

I actually thought I was more selfish than they give me credit for.

Your level of selfishness is 40%



Average level of selfishness. Your result shows the presence of an average level of selfishness. This means that you're not particularly selfish but not particularly caring. Let's say that you're not used to thinking only of yourself and know that if you have the time and the will, you will devote yourself to others by putting aside your personal needs, even if at the same time you are able to overlook the needs of others to seek your own well-being. So you're not totally selfless and you're not even too selfish. A healthy level of self-interest should be around 20-35%. Lower values ??suggest an excessive and insincere level of altruism, while values ??greater than 50% show a level of selfishness that is unhealthy. Write us if you enjoyed this test.

4 - Have you ever intentionally harmed someone else, even someone you don’t know, to obtain a personal benefit?

Is  vague, pretty much everyday many drivers "harm" me, and I "harm" them in return, in this case harm should be more defined.

 

Anyway, result: 34%

Oh, and also this question bugged me:

"14 - You only get what you give. What do you think of this?
It’s untrue, I always get more than I give 
It’s not always true, sometimes you can get more than what you give 
It’s true, but sometimes one would like to get more than what one gives 
Very true, those who give a lot also receive a lot, those who little also receive little "

Sometimes you get LESS than you give, dammit.

You think we're all being honest lol. 

I honestly think we are all selfish people and unselfishness is defined by acknowledging that life is better when you acknowledge other people (still selfish though, because if it wasn't better, we wouldn't do it, unless we're just stupid).

31% ...contained level

 

This question  is ridiculously one-sided.


14 - You only get what you give. What do you think of this? 

  1. It’s untrue, I always get more than I give 
  2. It’s not always true, sometimes you can get more than what you give 
  3. It’s true, but sometimes one would like to get more than what one gives 
  4. Very true, those who give a lot also receive a lot, those who little also receive little

I manipulated the test so I could get a 47% selfishness and claim the title of most selfish person.

I'm selfish like that.
