If you want to convince the boss you deserve a pay rise or promotion, the solution could be simple — eat the same food as they do. Psychologists have discovered managers are much more likely to instantly trust us if we choose the same dishes as them.
During experiments, discussions over wages and work conditions were much more successful if both sides chose to snack on the same treats. And shoppers were much more likely to buy a product advertised on TV by someone eating a similar food to them at the time.
eason is thought to be so-called similarity attraction theory — where people tend to like others who have similar tastes or habits to themselves. But this is believed to be one of the first studies highlighting the role of food in this relationship. Researchers at?Chicago?University?in the?US?conducted a series of experiments to examine food’s role in earning trust.
In a test, participants were told to watch TV — where someone pretending to be a member of the public praised a certain product. The volunteers were given Kit Kat bars to nibble (咬), while the TV people ate either a Kit Kat or grapes as they talked.
The results showed viewers were much more likely to express an interest in buying the product if the TV showed the other person eating a Kit Kat too.
The researchers added, “Although similarity in food consumption is not a sign of whether two people will get along, we find consumers treat this as such. They feel more trusting of those who consume as they do. It means people can immediately begin to feel friendship and develop a bond, leading to smoother transactions (交易) from the start.”
Harley Street?psychologist Dr. Lucy Atcheson said it was already known that wearing similar clothes could instantly create trust. But this was the first report that food had the same effect. She said, “This is really interesting. It makes sense as people feel they have common ground and can trust the other person. That means negotiations are more likely to be successful.”
24. According to the passage, customers are likely to buy a product from a dealer who ______.
A. reduces the price of his products
B. advertises his products on TV
C. has the same taste as them
D. pays attention to the quality of his products
25. The experiments conducted by researchers at?Chicago?University?show that ____.
A. bosses like employees that have the same taste as them
B. food plays an important role in earning people’s trust
C. people who have similar tastes to their boss’s earn more
D. people have less interest in buying products advertised on TV
26. What can be inferred from the passage?
A. The effect of wearing similar clothes hasn’t been proved by researchers.
B. People are more likely to make friends with those wearing the same clothes as them.
C. People who eat similar food are more likely to trust each other.
D. People will get along with each other if they like to eat similar things.
27. Which of the following sayings can be an example of the similarity attraction theory?
A. Honesty is the best policy. B. All good things come to an end.
C. Where there is a will, there is a way. D. Birds of a feather flock together.
Dubai（迪拜）is one of the economically richest places in the world. With its numerous malls, hotels, and beautiful beaches, Dubai has always been a popular holiday destination. This city was visited by around 5 million tourists each year. The government wanted to increase this number to 15 million. However, Dubai has only 45 miles of coastline, which is nowhere enough for so many people. To solve this problem, an island that looked like a palm tree was built in 2006, and named the Palm Jumeirah.
The plan for the island was extraordinary. It was to host several hotels, shopping malls, restaurants, and homes. Although the initial plan was to build the island from concrete（水泥）, a decision was taken to create it from sand and gravel（砾石）, so as to give it a natural look.
To make sure that this project was a success, the best engineers from across the world were employed. Engineers from Holland formed the majority in this group. To begin with, the engineers calculated the strength of storms at sea, and also the expected amount of rise in water levels due to global warming. And then they found that, the proposed location for the island was neither very wide nor deep.
One of the difficulties the engineers came across was to put sand on the sea bed to create the breakwater（防浪堤）.Finding the right sand for the project was also a daunting task, as the sand from Dubai’s deserts was too fine. Instead, sand from the sea was used, as it was coarser（粗糙）. Once the breakwater was built, construction of the island began.
The Palm Island are really impressive in terms of engineering. However, these projects are so large that they may have changed the ecology of the region. Also, an immense amount of money and resources go into maintaining the islands, which is a major concern at the moment. Only time will tell if building the Palm Islands was actually a good decision.
28. What?does?Paragraph 1 mainly?show?us?
A.Beautiful?attractions?of?Dubai, B. The?geographical?features?of?Dubai.
C. The?purposes?of?building?the?Palm?Jumeirah, D. The?difficulty?in?developing?the?tourism?industry.
A. To?reduce?the?building?cost. B. To?get?the?islands?completed?sooner.
C. To?get?the?building?materials?more?easily. D. To?make?the?island?look?more?natural,
A. meaningless B. difficult C. Impossible D. necessary
31. According?to?the?last?paragraph, how?is?the?construction?of?the?Palm?Islands?
A. Profitable. B. Surprising. C. Worrying. D. Unbelievable.
A recent study led by researchers from the National University of Singapore(NUS)has found a clear link between the color of a taxi and its accident rate. An analysis of 36 months of detailed taxi, driver and accident data from two fleets of yellow and blue taxis in Singapore suggested that yellow taxis have fewer accidents than blue taxis. The higher visibility (能见度)of yellow makes it easier for drivers to avoid getting into accidents with yellow taxis, leading to a lower accident rate.
The study was led by Prof Ho. To test whether there was a causal relationship between the color of a taxi and the number of accidents the taxi had, the research team analysed data collected by the largest taxi company in Singapore. The researchers found that yellow taxis have about 6.1 fewer accidents per 1,000 taxis per month.
The researchers also studied the economic effect of changing the color of the entire fleet of taxis to yellow. The Singapore taxi company involved in the study owns about 16,700 taxis in a ratio(比例) of one yellow to three blue taxis. If a commercial decision is made to switch from blue to yellow taxis, 76.6 fewer accidents would occur per month or 917 fewer accidents per year. Assuming an average repair cost of S$1,000 per car and a downtime of six days, switching the color of all taxis to yellow could produce an annual savings of S$2 million.
“We are eager to continue to validate(证实) the findings of our study by looking at the use of yellow in other types of public transport, such as school buses. For instance, we hope to compare the accident rates of yellow school buses against other colors to find out if yellow is indeed a safer color for school buses. Besides, we are also interested to look at private-hire vehicles and do a comparison of the accident rates of vehicles that are of different colors,” explained Prof Ho.
32. Why do yellow taxis result in fewer accidents?
A. Because yellow can be seen more easily
B. Because yellow signals a warning of danger
C. Because drivers tend to be more careful in yellow taxis
D. Because people act more quickly in yellow surroundings
33. What’s Prof Ho’s study based on?
A. Physical risks taxi passengers experience B. The economic effect of changing taxi color
C. Data from Singapore’s largest taxi company D. Personal reports from taxi drivers worldwide
34. What do Prof Ho’s words in the last paragraph suggest?
A. School buses should be painted yellow B. Their findings are worth popularizing
C. Yellow should be widely used in public transport D. Their study will be furthered
35. What can be the best title for the text?
A. Caution: yellow taxis ahead B. Safer to ride in yellow taxis
C. Why are yellow taxis preferred? D. How can colors help prevent accidents?
