Selfish people always seem to want everything for themselves. They never care about anybody else’s feelings or problems, they are in it to benefit them self. Like in basketball, when a player hogs the ball he tries to do all the work himself without using his other teammates. He is being selfish by hogging the ball. When people tend to be selfish, others tend to not be as attracted to the person, thinking they are stuck up. In the great Gatsby daisy and tom seem to be selfish people. Tom is selfish in the way he only wants daisy to himself, yet he can go mess around with other women thinking its ok. Daisy is also selfish though in the way she talks about the things she has or the things she wants. Whatever either of them wanted they always got. Gatsby on the other hand was far from selfish. He would always have parties, having people over he never invited. Even though they were uninvited Gatsby would still treat them as if they were invited personally by him. When daisy came over to nick’s house for tea, Gatsby ordered flowers to be placed in nicks home to make it look more furnished and house warming. Most of the things Gatsby did were to benefit other and to make others happy. When daisy was driving the car and hit myrtle Gatsby took the blame for her and ended up getting shot by Mr. Wilson. When people seem to have money and have a higher prestige then others, they seem to be more selfish with things, then if a person were to make his money from hard work and come up from a lower class.
