My father and I were very close. I loved pleasing him, and he was always proud
of my success. If I won a spelling contest(竞赛) at school, he was on top of the world.
Later in life whenever I got a promotion(提升), I'd call my father right away and he'd
rush out to tell all his friends. In 1970,when I was named president of the Ford Motor
Company, I don't know which of us was more excited.
Like many native Italians, my parents were very open with their feelings and
their loves not only at home, but also in public. Most of my friends would never
hug(拥抱) their fathers. But I hugged and kissed my dad at every opportunity nothing

in Allentown to buy a motorcycle. Unfortunately, my father and his motorcycle didn't
get along too well. He fell off it so often that he got rid of it just a month after buying
it. As a result, he never again trusted any vehicle with less than four wheels.

growing up. Whenever I wanted to ride a bike, I had to borrow one from a friend.

You‟re out to dinner. The food is delicious and the service is fine. You decide to
leave a big tip. Why? The answer may not be as simple as you think.
Tipping, psychologists( 心理学家 ) have found, is not just about service. Instead, studies have shown that tipping can be affected by psychological reactions to a series
of different factors ( 因素 ) ranging from the waiter‟s choice of words to how they
carry themselves while taking orders to the bill‟s total. Even how much waiters
remind customers of themselves can determine how much change they pocket by the
end of the night.
“ Studies before have shown that mimicry ( 模仿 ) brings into positive feelings
for the mimicker,” said Rick van Baaren, a social psychology professor. “These
studies show that people who are being mimicked become more generous ( 大方的 )
toward the person who mimics them.”
So Rick van Baaren divided 59 waiters into two groups. He requested that half
respond to diner‟s meal orders with a phrase such as, “Coming up!” Those in the other
half were instructed to repeat the orders and preferences back to the customers. Rick
van Baaren then compared their take-home pay. The results were clear ?? it pays to mimic your customer. The copycat waiters earned almost double the amount of tips
than the other group.
Leonard Green and Joel Myerson , psychologists at Washington University in St.
Louis, found the generosity of a tipper might be limited by his bill. After research on
the 1,000 tips left for waiters, taxi drivers and hair stylists, they found tip percentages
in three areas dropped as customers‟ bills went up. In fact, tip percentages appear to
plateau ( 稳定 ) when bills topped $100 and a bill for $200 made the worker gain no
bigger percentage tip than a bill for $100.
“That‟s also a point of tipping,” said Green. “ You have to give a little extra to the
taxi driver for being there to pick you up and something to the waiter for being there
to serve you. If they weren‟t there you‟d never get any service. So part of the idea of a
tip is for just being there.”
64. According to the passage, a passenger gives the taxi driver an extra tip for ___
A. driver‟s politeness B. driver‟s mimicry C. driver‟s attitudes D. being there
65. According to the passage, which of the following will be likely to show the right
change of the tip percentages ?
A B C D
66. According to the passage, we know the writer seems to ______________.
A. oppose Mr. Green‟s idea about tipping
B. think part of Mr. Green‟s explanation is reasonable
C. give his generous tip to the waiters very often
D. support the opinions of Mr. Green and Rick van Baaren about tipping
Doodles are signs which you draw unconsciously when you are holding a pen in your
hand and just happen to start writing aimlessly. However, there is more to these”
diagrams( 图形) of the unconscious” than what you see. Free from the
restriction(limitation) of the conscious mind, they can be useful in finding your
character and personality, and many of your secret hopes, ambitions, fears, and
Faces are a sign of sociability or lack of it. If you doodle happy, smiling faces, you have a friendly, out -going disposition(character) which people respond to, and
you enjoy an active social life. If your faces are bad, this may mean hating others.
Faces looking to the right are a sign of out-going personality and confident
expectation about the future, to the left, a sign of shyness and self-control.
Bare or narrow trees show a lack of warmth. You‟ve probably been disappointed
in life or could even be suffering from a minor illness that needs attention.
If you build a house in layers( 层) , each layer separate, you could be too proud, too eager to make your loved ones follow your order and jump to attention. A little
untidiness in a house makes the people feel comfortable, safe and happy.
If your doodle looks like a web, you are making a cry for help in solving a
problem, you feel trapped, and are seeking a way out; perhaps you even want to travel,
try out new ideas and realize your ambitions. But you lack confidence to step out into
the world on your own because of the web you‟ve created around you.
