1.Shynessis the cause of much unhappiness for a great many people. Shy people are anxious and self-conscious; that is, they are excessively concerned with their own appearance and actions. Worrisome thoughts are constantly occurring in their minds:what kind of impression am I making? Do they like me? Do sound stupid? Am I wearing unattractive clothes? It is obvious that such uncomfortable feelings must negatively affect people. A person’s conception of himself or herself is reflected in the way he or she behaves, and the way a person behaves affects other people’s reactions. In general, the way people think about themselves has a profound effect on all areas of their lives. Shy people, having low self -esteem, are likely to be passive and easily influenced by other s. They need reassurance that they are doing“the right thing.”Shy people are very sensitive to criticism; they feel it confirms their feelings of inferiority. T hey also find it difficult to be pleased by compliment with a statement like this one,“You’re just saying that to make me feel good. I know it’s not true.”It is clear that while self-awareness is a healthy quality, overdoing it is harmful. Can shyness be completely eliminated, or at least reduced? Fortunately, people can overcome shyness with determined and patient efforts in building self -confidence. Since shyness goes hand in hand with a la ck of self-esteems, it is important for people to accept their weakness as well as their strengths. Each one of us is a unique, worthwhile individual, interested in our own personal ways. T he better we understand ourselves, the easier it becomes to live up to our full potential. Let’s not allow shyness to block our chances for a rich and fulfilling life.
2.In the United States, it is not customary to telephone someone very early in the morning. If you telephone him early in the day, while he is shaving or having breakfast, the time of the call shows that the matter is very important and requires immediate attention. The same meaning is attached to telephone calls made after 11:00 p.m. If someone receives a call during sleeping hours, he assumes it s a matter of life or death. The time chosen for the call communicates its importance. In social life, time plays a very important part. In the U.S.A. guests tend to feel they are not highly regarded if the invitation to a dinner party is extended only three or four days before the party date. But it is not true in all countries. In other areas of the world, it may be considered foolish to make an appointment too far in advance because plans which are made for a date more than a week away tend to be forgotten. The meaning of time differs in different parts of the world. Thus, misunderstandings arise between people from different cultures that treat time differently. Promptness is valued highly in American life, for example. If people are not prompt, they may be regarded as impolite or not fully responsible. In the U.S. no one would think of keeping a business associate waiting for an hour, it would be too impolite. A person who is 5 minutes late, will say a few words of explanation, though perhaps he will not complete the sentence. (260 words)
1.Scientists have studied consumer behavior recently and found that the look of the package has a greateffect##the “quality” of the product and on how well it sells, because “consumers generallycannot tell between a product and its package. Many products are packages and many packages areproducts, ’’ as Louis Cheskin, the first social scientist studying consumers’ feeling for packaging,noticed.” Colors are one of the best tools in packaging. Studies of eye movement have shown that colorsdraw human## quickly. Take V8 for example. For many years, the bright red color of tomatoesand carrots on the thin bottle makes you feel that it is very good for your body. And the word “green”today can keep food prices##. Shapes are another attraction. Circles often suggest happiness andpeacefulness, because these shapes are pleasing to both the eye and the heart. That’s## theround yellow M signs of McDonald’s are inviting to both young and old. This new consumer response to the colors and shapes of packages remains producers and sellersthat people ## to satisfy both body and soul.
