it.At last,I was in control of my working life and poured my heart and soul into making it succeed. When we first met,I fell hard for Christopher right away,although I wouldn’t call it love.I’d never been with a man who was prettier than I was,but after a while I got used to this,and it didn’t bother me so much.I was recovering from a broken heart and needed something to help me move on.If it wasn’t love,it was good enough,and when he asked me to marry him I jumped at the chance,knowing that it might be my last. Things started out so well.I was working steadily and Christopher was patiently climbing up the ladder in his department.Then,without any warning,one gray winter afternoon in year five,he just upped and left his desk at the bank,handed in his resignation,and came home and told me he wanted to start an interior design business. He has always loved mixing and matching,and has a real eye for color,texture,and shape,but the idea of turning a hobby into a business wasn’t something we had ever discussed.I thought the stress of his job was becoming too much and perhaps he would take a few months off over the spring and summer to relax and get the idea out of his system.I didn’t believe he could be serious.But once he had a few clients,he began to draw up plans,ordering catalogues and turning our empty workshop into a kind of makeshift studio with all of his sketches pinned to the wall.After spending a lot of time and money on all of this preparation,and really doing quite a nice job of it,he called each client in turn and apologized,saying he wouldn’t be able to design their living spaces after all.

time ago.You are bored. Virtually everyone gets bored once in a while.Most of us chalk it up to a dull environment.“The most common way to define boredom in Western culture is ‘having nothing to do,’”says psychologist Stephen Vodanovich of the University of West Florida.And indeed,early research into the effects of boredom focused on people forced to perform dull tasks,such as working a factory assembly line. But boredom is not merely an natural property of the circumstances,researchers say.Rather this perception is subjective and rooted in aspects of consciousness.Levels of boredom vary among people:some individuals are far less liable to boredom than others?and some,such as extroverts(性格外向者),are more likely to have this feeling. Thus,a new generation of scientists is coping with the psychological interpretations of this most tedious of human emotions?and they have found that it is more complicated than is commonly known.Researchers say that boredom is not a unified concept but rather comes in several flavors.Level of attention,an aspect of conscious awareness,plays an important role in boredom,such that improving a person’s ability to focus may therefore decrease boredom.Emotional factors can also contribute to boredom.People who are poor in understanding their own feelings and

Staying away from tedium is not easy.People who are liable to boredom are more likely to suffer from ills such as depression and drug addiction;they also tend to be socially awkward and poor performers at school or work.
(

答案:D
(

To study storytelling,scientists must first define what constitutes a story,and that can prove tricky.Because there are so many diverse forms,scholars often define story structure,known as narrative,by explaining what it is not.Exposition contrasts with narrative by being a simple,straightforward explanation,such as a list of facts or an encyclopedia entry.Another standard approach defines narrative as a series of causally linked events that unfold over time.A third definition draws on the typical narrative’s subject matter:the interactions of intentional agents?characters with minds?who possess various motivations. However narrative is defined,people know it when they feel it.Whether fiction or nonfiction,a narrative engages its audience through psychological realism?recognizable emotions and believable interactions among characters. “Everyone has a natural detector for psychological realism,”says Raymond A.Mar,assistant professor of psychology at York University in Toronto.“We can tell when something rings false.”But the best stories?those retold through generations and translated into other languages?do more than simply present a believable picture.These tales attract their audience,whose emotions can be closely tied to those of the story’s characters.Such immersion(沉浸)is a state psychologists call“narrative transport”.Researchers have only begun figuring out the relations among the variables that can initiate narrative transport.
(
  1). The passage indicates that storytelling. (A). is becoming less and less popular in modern societies (B). attracts researchers’attention all through human history (C). is the best way to show the evolutionary past of human beings (D). is a common cultural phenomenon all through the known history
