  1. Your colleague’s sharp comment keeps replaying in your mind. Two of your students are trapped in a “he said/she said” battle. When you reflect on your emotional reactions, you sometimes get caught up in cycles of negative feelings, which can make you feel even worse. If so, the answer may lie in a skill called “self-distancing”,the ability to take a step back and view yourself more objectively. According to a research, when people adopt self-distancing while discussing a difficult event, they make better sense of their reactions, experience less emotional suffering, and display fewer signs of stress.

    But what might self-distancing look like in action? Consider a typical “he said/she said” student conflict where they are each focusing on their own feelings. One is thinking“I can’t believe he did that to me.” And another insists, “She really hurt my feelings.” However, if you ask them to take the self-distancing, they might step outside of themselves and ask broader questions: “Why was he so hurt in this situation?” or “How did her anger affect him?”

    Although this approach may sound too simple to be effective, studies indicate that a change in point of view can have a powerful effect on the way people think, feel, and behave. Here are several different techniques you can try.

    Firstconsider how a thoughtful friend might respond after quietly observing their situation. Besides, avoid using the pronoun “I”. Focus on using third-person pronouns, he, she, they, and they were able to see the stressful event as challenging rather than threatening. Finally, ask yourself, “How would I feel about this one week from now or ten years from now?” This form of mental time travel may be effective because our attention is directed away from our immediate, concrete circumstances.

    1.What is self-distancing?

    A.Getting stuck in negative emotions. B.A stressful situation.

    C.A study on relieving emotional stress. D.Reflecting on yourself objectively.

    2.Paragraph 2 is developed by____.

    A.example B.definition

    C.classification D.process

    3.Which of the following statement uses the techniques of self-distancing?

    A.I’m angry with him.

    B.How I wish I could go back to the past!

    C.How did these two people get to this point?

    D.He grabbed my notes, and then, and then...

    4.What is the best title for the passage?

    A.Why Self-distancing Matters

    B.The Application of Self-distancing

    C.Breaking the Cycle of Negative Reflection

    D.Ways to Reflect on Emotional Reactions

  2. The hotel roof top bar will never go out of style. Whether it’s on the 6th floor or the 65th, there’s something undeniably appealing about dining, drinking, swimming and yoga-ing high above the streets of the city below. Here are some of the best (relative) newcomers.

    Qr Melbourne

    The locally loved rooftop at QT is something of a chameleon (变色龙). By day, it’s the site of pop-up yoga sessions that allow guests to take in the skyline from within their downward does. At mealtime, it’s a place to dine on vegetables from chef Andrew Harmer’s rooftop garden. And after dark, it becomes a happening bar serving high-concept cocktails.

    The Silo, Cape Town

    The design of this new hotel ensures that every room has a dizzying view, but the roof top is especially enjoyable. The rooftop, which feels like it’s floating above Cape Town, has fantastic views of Table Mountain, Lions Head and the ocean. There’s a guests-only infinity pool (无边际游泳池) and a restaurant and a restroom with 360-degree views over the city.

    Aria Hotel Budapest

    The pride of this hotel is its High Note Sky Bar, with a year-round rooftop garden that offers wraparound (全景的) views over the city of Budapest. The bar managers chefs and bake chefs work together to ensure maximum enjoyment.

    The Winery Hotel, Sweden

    It’s the sixth floor of this hotel in Solna, where the rooftop life comes alive. Along with a restaurant that serves wine, cocktails and spaghetti, the hotel hosts DJ sessions that create the sensation of being in a much larger city.

    1.What’s special about the rooftop at QT?

    A.The rooftop is a chameleon.

    B.The rooftop can function as different sites.

    C.The roof top serves high-concept wine.

  3. In the animal kingdom, weakness can bring about aggression in other animals. This sometimes happens with humans also. But I have found that my weakness brings out the kindness in people. I see it every day when people hold doors for me, pour cream into my coffee, or help me to put on my coat. And I have discovered that it makes them happy.

    From my wheelchair experience, I see the best in people, but sometimes I feel sad because those who appear independent miss the kindness I see daily. They don’t get to see this soft side of others. Often, we try every way possible to avoid showing our weakness, which includes a lot of pretending. But only when we stop pretending we're brave or strong do we allow people to show the kindness that’s in them.

    Last month, when I was driving home on a busy highway, I began to feel unwell and drove more slowly than usual. People behind me began to get impatient and angry, with some speeding up alongside me, horning (按喇吼)or even shouting at me. At the moment I decided to do something I had never done in twenty-four years of driving. I put on the car flashlights and drove on at a really low speed.

    No more angry shouts and no more horns!

    When I put on my flashlights, I was saying to other drivers, “I have a problem here. I am weak and doing the best I can. And everyone understood. Several times, I saw drivers who wanted to pass. They couldn’t get around me because of the stream of passing traffic. But instead of getting impatient and angry, they waited, knowing the driver in front of them was in some way weak.

    Sometimes situations call for us to act strong and brave even when we don’t feel that way. But those are few and far between. More often, it would be better if we don’t, pretend we feel strong when we feel weak or pretend that we are brave when we are scared.

    1.People will feel happy, according to the author's findings, when __________.

    A.they offer their help to others B.they receive others’ help

    C.they feel others’ kindness to them D.they show their weakness to other people

    2.Why does the author feel sad sometimes?

    A.Because he has a soft heart, showing sympathy to others.

    B.Because he is disabled and relies much on others.

    C.Because some people pretend to be kind, but in fact they are not.

    D.Because some people fail to see the kindness in others.

    3.What did the other drivers do when they saw the flashlights?

    A.They sped up to pass because they didn’t want to wait.

    B.They stopped their cars to offer help.

    C.丁hey put on their flashlights too.

    D.They waited with patience.

    4.In this passage, the author advises us to _________.

    A.be independent of others and handle problems by ourselves

    B.accept help from others for everything

    C.admit our weakness

    D.show our bravery

  4. Throughout our daily lives, we have known plenty of people and will know more. But how can we tell if someone is trustworthy? In a paper published recently in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, researcher gave us the answer.

    The researchers asked 401 adults from the United States to fill out a questionnaire measuring their guilt-proneness(内疚倾向) in different situations as well as several other qualities, and then play a short online game. In this game, Player 1 is given $1, which they can choose to give to Player2. Any money given to Player 2 is then automatically increased to $2.50. Player 2 can then decide whether to keep all of the money or behave in a trustworthy way by returning a portion of the money to Player 1. The researchers found more guilt-prone people were more likely to share the money with Player1. Actually, in follow-up studies, guilt-proneness predicted trustworthiness better than other personality qualities the researchers measured.

    Why might guilt lead to trustworthy behavior? The researchers found people who were guilt-prone also reported feeling an obligation to act in ethical(合乎道德的) and responsible ways while interacting(互动) with their partners in the game. People who are guilt-prone tend to avoid engaging in behavior that might harm or disappoint others. If they do something bad, guilt encourages them to try to make things right again.

    Then, how can we use this research to ascertain whether someone is trustworthy? “One way to do this might be observe how they respond to experience regret,” lead author Emma Levine, assistant professor at the University of Chicago Levine, explains. Another way is to ask them to describe a difficult dilemma they faced in the past, suggests co-author Taya Cohen, associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University. This is particularly effective, Cohen and her colleagues have found, because it allows us to see if they’re concerned about the effects their actions have on others.

    1.What may make others feel that we are reliable according to the text?

    A.Our good qualities to help them out.

    B.Our tendency to experience guilt.

    C.Our kind attitude towards them.

    D.Our team spirit in the game.

    2.What may connect guilt with trustworthy behavior?

    A.A sense of responsibility.

    B.A feeling of disappointment.

    C.The way one interacts with others.

    D.The ability to tell right from wrong.

    3.What does the underlined word “ascertain” in the last paragraph mean?

    A.Ask B.Express

    C.Describe D.Determine

    4.How is the text organized and developed?

    A.By providing background.

    B.By making a lot of comparisons.

    C.By answering the raised questions.

    D.By analyzing effects of guilt-proneness.
