Yes, it is and we call it EMPATHY, regardless of what you are going to benefit, you must be motivated from within to go out of the way to do that extra bit for people around you by word as well by our action. And again, that requires you to attain some sorts of learnt habits which eventually turns to be your skills to deal people at a society and that what we call as SOCIAL SKILLS!! And guess what? Over a period of time, you get to know the right and wrong approaches and you try experimenting and introspecting your own self. And there is a stage where we really invest lot of time getting to know much about our own self. And only the one who exerts much energy into examine his own capabilities and weaknesses will be successful to perform in the best way possible!! And that is SELF-AWARENESS
