What Are Some Examples of Egoism Disguised as Altruism?

Answer

Egoism means that a person is only concerned about themselves. If egoism is disguised as altruism, it means that they are trying to look like they are doing something for someone else but are really only concerned about themselves. An example would be if someone asked if you wanted to go out for ice cream and they would buy it, but they really only care about going to get ice cream for themselves.
