    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( ) , 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.
