Do people actually exist who does good for goodness sake? I am a sociopath because I want to see at least a smile when I do something nice? That I am motivated to do nice things because I want to see a nice response? I don't understand what "manipulative" means. Every single interaction I have with a human being is manipulative. The only difference I can understand is benevolent manipulation vs. malevolent manipulation. When I ask someone how their day is going, I am using benevolent manipulation. I am trying to make them feel better and not using them as pawns for my personal gain.
Same if I die rescuing someone from a burning building. That is still manipulation as I see it even though it results in my own death. It is just a benevolent kind.
