A question for one of our resident psychology buffs.
Now, I've only done a year of psychology at a University level, so I may be completely off base here, but I seem to re-call a concept about the selfish nature of a person. Essentially, everything that a person does, whether the motive is readily and easily seen or not - would still have some psychological benefit for the person.
Ie, when a person gives to charity, it may seem selfless, but really they're making themselves feel good, so it has a motivation.
Am I way off, or do I have something applicable here?
Thanks in advance for any help.
