After you read that, ponder this idea of "the narcissism of empathy."

Funnily enough, quite a few of the most inspiring and effective people that I've met who work in the NGO world seem to posses something akin to a pronounced narcissist streak. Which isn't to say they're bad people. Or that there's something wrong with the NGO world, but rather that it does often seems to take quite a lot more than altruism to propel people to great deeds.
