Added 2June: I guess I wasn’t clear enough in the Saving The World podcast about the focus of my skepticism. I wasn’t saying that actually caring isn’t a part of the usual mix of charity motives, nor was I claiming that you can’t have reasonable evidence that your personal charity style is unusual. My skepticism was about too quickly assuming that a major source of your unusual style is that you just care more than most people about helping the world. This seems suspiciously self-serving, especially given all the other possible ways you could be weird.
