This question already has an answer here:
So, say that someone is about to start at a new school, and your sister says "Oh, I aced that class! Let me introduce you to the teacher; maybe he'll give you less homework/give you more opportunities."
For some reason the word "hedonism" is rattling around in my brain, though I know that's not it. Also maybe it's the opposite of "altruism"? I'm having an off day and can't for the life of me figure it out.
