    This question is specially for marketers.

    I'm not selfish at all. If someone said I was then they'd be completely wrong. My dad called me selfish once which I know isn't true.

    For most of my life I considered myself to be a very unselfish and giving person. However, as I got older I recognised that lots of people were more helpful to me than I ever was to them. This made me believe that I may have been a little more selfish than I was willing to admit, I'm trying to work on that now and be more helpful when I can.

    It has also been my observation that many people who are selfish really believe that they are not in anyway selfish and that some of the most generous and giving people underestimate themselves and don't seem to comprehend the sacrifices they make and how generous they are too others.

    The only unselfish people I am aware of are those who give a part of themselves willingly, not just people that they know but also even to strangers. If you have not done that, then in a way, you have been selfish. I'm not ashamed to say that there are definitely times that I am selfish, especially when I wanted something so bad. Just my honest opinion though. ;)

    Marketers are selfish because they have a target to keep their job. The target is to present the product/brand as the best, no matter how the product/brand is they have to create need for customers.

    And I can be selfish Marketer for others but not for my company.

    Not all marketers are selfish, some of them give very generously of their time to help promote charities and other good causes.

    Agree with you Fergal. I think marketers should not become selfish because for marketing their product or business they need help of others, so marketers should keeping helping each others so that every marketers can market their product easily without any investment.

    I have to say that I am a very unselfish person. Everything I do is for the benefit of others and I think about it all the time. Sometimes it is at my own cost and without the person knowing, but if that's what it takes, so be it.

    rudradhar I think that there are good and bad people in every profession and walk of life, it seems a little unfair to judge everyone in a particular profession the same way.

    Good for you Shahrier, you sound like a great friend to have.

    I always wish on being generous at all times, at all cost, but when it comes to my personal interest, I'm getting selfish. I am selfish, but not selfish as a character. I keep myself on being humble, generous, helpful as long as I could.

    I think being selfish is a double edged sword. Look at most successful (at least by society's standards) people. The people that have made money or reached the top of their field are almost always very competitive and selfish people. Look at Steve Jobs. His "selfishness" has made millions of people's lives more convenient.

    Your point is interesting MoneyTrack, I have personally known some successful people who were extremely selfish and self driven, yet lots of people and books tell us that the more we give to others the more successful we will be.

    That's a very interesting paradox, I suppose we can't be much help to others unless we look after ourselves.
