Rational Egoist

Your results indicate that you believe:
- As long as you're not part of the problem, you're OK; there's no moral imperative to take care of anyone else. People do not have a responsibility to others.
- There's a grey area on the issue of personal freedom. Some things supercede the right to consent.

You're clearly not a hedonist, but nonetheless you definitely have a selfish outlook on morality--and I'm using "selfish" in the philosophical sense, not the everyday sense. Lots of philosophers have extolled a selfish outlook on morality, though usually without calling it selfishness.
Many greek philosophers such as Aristotle advocated the idea of eudaimonia, loosely translated as happiness, and considered pride a virtue. Modern philosophers such as Ayn Rand have done the same.
Nonetheless, most people would probably think you're a jerk. Maybe they're not too far off the mark--even the ruthlessly egoistic Objectivists would say that benevolence is a virtue.
