Are people just giving thumbs up to their own answers?

I notice oftentimes when I ask a question, somebody will answer it and then within a second they'll already have a thumbs up.

    I would expect some do. Some of us really don't care about such things though. I come here to kill time and maybe help someone, I have no desire for thumbs up, best answer or any points.

    I do sometimes and always have, but only if I consider my answer is worthy of it. In the days of community voting one was allowed to vote for ones own answer if we believed it was the best answer. After community voting was ended they continued the tradition by allowing us to give our self a TU. I must say  if I didnt give myself a TU no-one else would  !  LOL

    Its not worth worrying about the person answering the question can give themselves a 100 thumbs up if they could but it still would not ensure them of the Best Answer.

    It is up to the person who asked the question to decide which answer they consider the best.
