Why do people do good deeds?

Why do people do good deeds? Are they being selfless or is there something else going on? Psychological egoists believe that everything we do we do because it somehow benefits us. It might seem like you're being the good guy, but that’s all just an illusion. Apparently, deep down, we are nothing but selfish.
