All the problems in the Great Gatsby is caused by selfishness. For example, Daisy shows selfishness because she doesn't care about anyone except herself. She is very beautiful and rich but she still wants more. Both Tom and Gatsby love Daisy, but she seems to get a thrill out of it, but she never thought about how Gatsby or Tom felt about this situation. Also Jordan Baker is considered a selfish person because all she does is gossip about others, which makes her self centered.
Parties at Gatsby's lawn, most of the people there are examples of selfish people. The people at his party are rich and don't care about anyone except themselves. They go to parties to enjoy themselves and not care about Gatsby's property. The people who are uninvited show up and gossip about him which exemplifies selfishness.
