The paper analyses the attitude of public servants, to understand if it is based on an others- or self-oriented behavior. The conceptualization of the Public Service Motivation in the 1990s provided researchers with a new construct to understand the peculiar motivational leverages related to public sector employees. However, the concept has been analysed as based on altruistic elements rather than on self-serving ones. Using the European Social Survey for 2016, 2014 and 2012, it is empirically confirmed that the behavior of public servants within a European context is based on altruistic elements.
