Are you motives mostly self-directed? Do you give because you love the warm fuzzy feels that come with doing the right thing? Or because giving money away is part of the image you want to project? Don’t feel bad! Many philosophers and psychologists have argued that all of our motives are essentially self-regarding so maybe you’re just one of the honest ones.
Perhaps you do think you are genuinely altruistic when you give. In that case, we’re asking you to think about whether your main concern is with doing the right thing or with how much difference your money is making. That is, how results-oriented are you when you give? Are you happy knowing that you’re acting well when you are charitable or generous, or do you need to be sure that your money makes an impact? If the former, pick the ‘Doing a good deed’ option, if the latter, choose ‘Making good things happen.’
