Sorry to correct you, but I think your sentence is suppose to read, What is selfishness? How do you know if you are selfish. Did someone tell you so, and what was your reaction....

But the meaning of selfish is devoting to or caring only for yourself; concerned primarily with one's own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., disregarding of others.

But I believe that everyone is atleast some what selfish in their own little ways.

from dictionary.com
devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one's own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others

so selfishness is the act of being selfish. and to an extent, arent we all. caring for oneself. selfishness is worked into our DNA; survival of the fittest pits you against all the others. so yes i am a little selfish. but superficially, not really. ive been told i was, jokingly, and i retorted with "but all i want is your love" which is a line from an nsync song called selfish

dr154 explained selfiness correctly and i agree with her/him.
If yu ask me sometimes i am, sometimes not. It's depending from the situation

I admit I am rather selfish most of the time, especially when it comes to food. [ ]
Although it's hard not to be selfish. For example, even a good deed can be considered as done purely for selfish reasons...but I won't go into that.

^ ohhh are you thinking what i was about to post?

Question:
If helping others makes you feel good then is it a selfish act? ^-^
It's a random thought that annoys me! Can you really work out if you are doing it for their benefit or for your own?

Selfish is as vague a term when describing the human condition as almost any other. You need to nail down a definition before you attempt to quantify how selfish you might be. It also deals with personal motivation which enters into the much over debated "Intentions vs. results" discussion.
