Do you make choices oriented more for yourself and selfweal, or more for others and the commonweal of all?

I guess that Essorant is asking for individual to give examples.

so, Sir Balladeer, he wants to know how you left dirty dishes, dirty laundry, dirty floor, messy yard, and your poor friend Sir Tabin who  needs somebody to chat for your own self-interest put on the Walmart bag (which is a pollution to the golf course) and go golf? how do you rational this as rational-self interest? as I call it a very selfish behavior.

Drauntz is right.  

Let people speak for their own choices and say for themselves whether they are selfcentered or not. For it is full overweening for one to say that the knowledge/evidence of the reason he made his choice about something is the knowledge/evidence of the reason why I made mine, you made yours, or she, they and any others made theirs.

So those people would be overweeners?
