James Sonne and Don Gash are two American psychologists who explored the psychology of altruism. On one of their research, they said: The age-old philosophical, biological, and social debate over the basic nature of humans as being ‘universally selfish’ or ‘universally good’ continues today highlighting sharply divergent views of natural social order. 

Do you consider yourself to be a good person? Are you altruistic enough? Can you create and maintain fulfilling relationships?  Everything from poor listening skills to financial problems may have a detrimental ripple effect for you and your loved ones. But those emotions can be difficult to quantify – until now.

This survey interviewed 991 people to rate their own selfish behaviours and those of others and their impact on their relationships.
