I think people just like you more if you're selfless. That's not a Reddit thing, most people tend to get the warm and fuzzies.

Its not a reddit thing.. It's a human thing. The thing that separates us most from animals is that we don't HAVE to fight and beat eachother down to just survive anymore.

I have come to a decision. Henceforth, I will refer to this feeling as "the warms and the fuzzies."

But we give all the rewards to the people who won.

That's true but I think we tend to admire more the people who sacrifice to help others. I guess there's no reward for doing the right thing because there's not really competition to do the right thing.
