They are least attracted to smiling men, instead preferring those who looked proud and powerful, or moody and ashamed, according to a study. In contrast, men are most sexually attracted to women who look happy, and least attracted to those who appear proud and [w]confident[/w]. Just spotted a miserable man: Women are least attracted to smiling men, instead preferring those who looked proud and powerful, or moody and ashamed. The University Of British Columbia study, which is the first to report a significant gender difference in the attractiveness of smiles, helps explain the enduring allure of 'bad boys' and other iconic gender stereotypes. It is also the first study to investigate the attractiveness of displays of pride and shame. Lead researcher Professor Jessica Tracy said: 'While showing a happy face is considered essential to friendly social interactions, including those involving sexual [w]attraction[/w] - few studies have actually examined whether a smile is, in fact, attractive. 'This study finds that men and women respond very differently to [w]display[/w]s of emotion, including smiles.' More than 1,000 adult participants rated the [w]sexual[/w] attractiveness of hundreds of images of the opposite sex. These photos included [w]universal[/w] displays of happiness (broad smiles), pride (raised heads, puffed-up chests) and shame (lowered heads, averted eyes). The researchers found that women were least attracted to smiling, happy men - in contrast to men, who were most attracted to women who looked happy. Overall, the researchers said, men rank women more attractive than women rank men. Study co-author Alec Beall said: 'It is important to remember that this study explored first-impressions of sexual attraction to images of the opposite sex. 'We were not asking participants if they thought these targets would make a good boyfriend or wife - we wanted their [w]gut[/w] [w]reaction[/w]s on [w]carnal[/w], sexual attraction.' 【内容简介】 本文开篇描述了男性和女性对各自交往对象的标准,自然地引出科学家的新发现:在女性眼中,狂妄自大、略带忧郁状的男士比那天成天嘻嘻哈哈、乐天派男士们更性感,也更受欢迎。 接着文章具体介绍了这一研究的具体内容,对研究结论进行佐证。 【词汇短语讲解】 ①swagger  这个词既可作名词,也可作动词,还可以做形容词。 作名词时表示大摇大摆,吹牛;作动词时表示大摇大摆地走,吹嘘;作形容词时表示漂亮的,时髦的。 e.g. He is always swaggering how rich he is. 他老是吹嘘自己多有钱。 ②be attracted to  对……有吸引力的 ③in contrast to  和……对比,与……相反 【快速阅读支招】 做阅读要提前计划好级六级考试,阅读做题时间,考场上严格按照计划做题,不确定的题目上不要纠缠太久,否则接下来的题目可能会来不及做。另外,做阅读的方式也要注意,一般建议先扫一下题目,对文章内容有个初步了解,再带着问题去读文章。注意关键词定位,有了关键词,对于答案的定位是非常有帮助的,不要漫无目的地寻找,这样是对时间无谓的浪费。 戳此查看原文翻译>>> 喜欢这个节目吗?欢迎 点击查看该系列更多六级考试,阅读是不可或缺的一大部分,生词多,理解难,时间少,是不少考生抱怨的问题。要想在考场上做好阅读理解,必须在平常多阅读,掌握新词汇,提高阅读速度。而沪江小编就为大家准备了阅读材料系列,供大家练习。 我们的这个阅读系列旨在为大家提供一些阅读材料,不一定跟四六级考试的难度、篇幅、内容完全一样。对于很多童鞋纠结这是四级还是六级内容>>

Researchers have found a number of ways that fat people could influence their [w]pal[/w]s' girth. It can be [w]subliminal[/w] - where having overweight pals can make people see their weight as "normal" and eat accordingly until they're the same size. It can also be more direct, with obese people putting [w]pressure[/w] on their slimmer friends to eat more and exercise less until they "[w]achieve[/w] the same body size". And even being around larger pals can put you at risk of gaining weight yourself, as socializing with them is likely to [w]revolve[/w] more around eating or watching TV and less about exercising. Researchers from Arizona State University's School of Human [w]Evolution[/w] and Social Change in the US, interviewed 101 women alongside 812 of their [w]closest[/w] friends and relatives. By looking at the Body Mass Index of the women and their friends and relatives, they discovered that the fatter a woman's social [w]circle[/w], the more likely she was to be obese herself. This was because "we learn about acceptable body size from family and friends" according to researchers, with friendships based on eating and engaging in little physical activity more likely to end in [w]obesity[/w]. Despite the results researchers found that most women viewed being fat as a source of [w]shame[/w]. Asked whether they would rather be fat or have a range of socially stigmatized conditions, a quarter of women said they'd rather suffer from severe [w]depression[/w] than be fat, while more than one in 10 said they'd rather be totally blind than obese. 【内容简介】 文章开门见山介绍了最新研究——拥有大量胖友或胖亲的人更有可能发胖。 接着文章分析了这一研究结果的原因,包括潜移默化的影响和直接的影响。 接着文章介绍了一项调查结果,即女性胖友越多,发胖的可能性更大。 最后文章揭示了女性对待肥胖的态度。 【词汇短语讲解】 ①put pressure on  施加压力 ②Body Mass Index  身体质量指数 可简写为BMI, 测量身体是否肥胖的数值。据级六级考试,阅读有关报道,BMI值介于18.5-24,则体重属于正常范围。BMI大于24时即属于过重,大于27时即属于肥胖,必须多加注意。 ③social circle  社交圈子  circle可表示领域,如academic circle 学术界 ④end in 以……告终 ⑤view…as  把……视作…… 意思同regard…as… ⑥a range of  一套,一系列 【快速阅读支招】 考场上做阅读时一定要先过一遍问题,脑子里有个大致印象再去看文章,这样带着问题去读会节省很多时间。读过第一遍时把答案确定的题目先做完,然后不会的题目再去具体段落找答案。切忌在一道题目上纠缠太久,因为时间有限,前面耽误太多时间会影响后面做题,所以时间分配很重要! 戳此查看全文翻译>>> 喜欢这个节目吗?欢迎 点击查看该系列更多六级考试,阅读是不可或缺的一大部分,生词多,理解难,时间少,是不少考生抱怨的问题。要想在考场上做好阅读理解,必须在平常多阅读,掌握新词汇,提高阅读速度。而沪江小编就为大家准备了阅读材料系列,供大家练习。 我们的这个阅读系列旨在为大家提供一些阅读材料,不一定跟四六级考试的难度、篇幅、内容完全一样。对于很多童鞋纠结这是四级还是六级内容>>

Scientists have shown that females are drawn to [w]pink[/w]s and reds and men to blues and greens – and they believe the [w]explanation[/w] lies our hunter-gatherer past. As the gatherers of the operation, women's brains became fine-tuned to the [w]purple[/w]s and reds of [w]ripe[/w] fruits and berries. The men, meanwhile, developed a preference for the clear blue skies that signaled good weather for hunting. The theory comes from Chinese scientists who asked more than 350 students to study 11 colors for three minutes. This revealed the women to favor pink, purple and white and the men to like blue and green, the journal Personality and Individual Differences reports. The experiment also revealed [w]introvert[/w]ed men to be fond of yellow and [w]neurotic[/w] women to be keen on grey. Orange went down well with women with a sunny [w]disposition[/w], while brown was out of favor with both sexes. The Zhejiang University researchers said: "This [w=assert]asserts[/w] that a woman's brain is more specialised for gathering-related tasks, such as the identification of ripe fruit or [w]edible[/w] red leaves embedded in green [w]foliage[/w]." The ability to pick up on reds and pinks may also have helped in choosing a suitable mate, with rosy cheeks denoting good health and a red [w]tinge[/w] the blush of [w]attraction[/w]. 【内容简介】 文章首先阐述女生更爱粉色,而男生则更喜欢蓝色或绿色这一事实。 接着文章解释了这一发现是如何得来的,接着文章介绍了实验的其他结果,并分析男女对颜色的偏好有何意义。 【词汇短语讲解】 ①draw to  逼近,接近 ②fine-tuned 微调的,恰到好处的 ③preference for  对……的偏爱 ④go down well with sb.  为某人所接受,受某人欢迎    out of favor with sb.  失宠于某人 ⑤pick up on  与……熟悉起来,了解,领悟 ⑥denote v. 表示,象征  denote多指用符号等表示,而indicate则是指用词语或标记表达比较明确的意义。 【快速阅读支招】 一般的文章开篇或每段开头都会交代一下该篇或该段要讲的大概内容,所以时间较紧时可先找到开篇句了解文章大致要讲述的内容。 考试时遇到跟问题相关的句子或信息点可用铅笔划下来做个记号,然后跟问题对比,找出正确答案。 戳此查看全文翻译>>> 喜欢这个节目吗?欢迎 点击查看该系列更多六级考试,阅读是不可或缺的一大部分,生词多,理解难,时间少,是不少考生抱怨的问题。要想在考场上做好阅读理解,必须在平常多阅读,掌握新词汇,提高阅读速度。而沪江小编就为大家准备了阅读材料系列,供大家练习。 我们的这个阅读系列旨在为大家提供一些阅读材料,不一定跟四六级考试的难度、篇幅、内容完全一样。对于很多童鞋纠结这是四级还是六级内容>>
