Many believe that humans are fundamentally selfish, driven by self-interest. Yet as social psychologist Abigail Marsh, professor at Georgetown University, discusses in this TED Talk, research shows that human nature is just as inclined toward acts of caring and compassion. Through her research on “extreme altruists,” she concludes that humility is a core driver of altruism and can be developed in all of us.
