Hair Cuts

Posted May 14 2009 4:24pm

We finally broke down and got Sam a $12 professional hair cut, and it was worth every penny. 

The selfish parent gets her child’s hair cut nicely because she likes to look at the child and so wants to make him or her as beautiful as possible, and because it keeps the hair out of the child’s face, which makes life more pleasant for both of them.

The selfless parent might get the child’s hair cut out of a duty to groom the child, or to impress other people, but she will never allow herself a motivation that is selfish.

Selfishness does not always manifest itself in radically unusual actions, but there is always a difference in motivation and resulting satisfaction when one is selfish instead of altruistic.
