How We Form First Impression。We all have first impression of someone we just met. But why? Why do we form an opinion about someone without really knowing anything about him or her - aside perhaps from a few remarks or readily observable traits?The answer is related to how your brain allows you to be aware of the world. Your brain is so sensitive in picking up facial traits. Even very minor difference in how a person’s eyes, ears, nose, or mouth are placed in relation to each other makes you see him or her as different. In fact, your brain continuously processes incoming sensory information - the sights and sounds of your world. These incoming signals are compared against a host of memories” stored in the brain areas called the cortex(皮质) system to determine what these new signals mean”.If you see someone you know and like at school, your brain says familiar and safe”. If you see someone new, it says, new and potentially threatening”. Then your brain starts to match features of this strangers with other known” memories. The more unfamiliar the characteristics, the more your brain may say, This is new, I don’t like this person” Or else, I’m intrigued(好奇的)”. Or your brain may perceive a new face but familiar clothes, ethnicity, gestures - like your other friends; so your brain says: I like this person”. But these preliminary impressions can be dead wrong.When we stereotype people, we use a less mature form of thinking (not unlike the immature thinking of a very young child) that makes simplistic and categorical impressions of others. Rather than learn about the depth and breadth of people - their history, interest, values, strengths, and true character - we categorize them as jocks(骗子), peeks(反常的人), or freaks(怪人).However, if we resist initial stereotypical impressions, we have a chance to be aware of what a person is truly like. If we spend time with a person, hear about his or her life, hopes, dreams, and become aware of our cortex, which allow us to be humane.Our thinking is not mature enough when we stereotype people because_______.

Wrongly Convicted Man and His Accuser Tell Their Story。NEW YORK,NY, January 5,2010. St.Mar

Wrongly Convicted Man and His Accuser Tell Their Story。NEW YORK,NY, January 5,2010. St.Martin’s Press has announced the release of the paperback edition of Picking Cotton, a remarkable true story of what novelist John Grisham calls an account of violence, rage, redemption(救赎),and, ultimately forgiveness.”  The story began in 1987, in Burlington, North Carolina, with the rape of a young while college student named Jennifer Thompson. During her ordeal, Thompson swore to herself that she would never forget the face of her rapist, a man who climbed through the window of her apartment and assaulted her brutally.________(1) When the police asked her if she could identify the assailant(袭击者) from a book of mug shots, she picked one that she was sure was correct, and later she identified the same man in a lineup.Based on her convincing eyewitness testimony, a 22-year-old black man named Ronald Cotton was sentenced to prison for two life terms. Cotton’s lawyer appealed the decision, and by the time of the appeals hearing, evidence had come to light suggesting that the real rapist might have been a man who looked very like Cotton, an imprisoned criminal named Bobby Poole._______ (2) Jennifer Thompson looked at both men face to face, and once again said that Ronald Cotton was the one who raped her.Eleven years later, DNA evidence completely exonerated(证明……清白) Cotton and just as unequivocally(明确地) convicted Poole, who confessed to the crime. ________(3) The man I was so sure I had never seen in my life was the man who was inches from my throat, who raped me, who hurt me, who took my spirit away, who robbed me of my soul,” she wrote. And the man I had identified so surely on so many occasions was absolutely innocent.”_______ (4) Remarkably both were able to put this tragedy behind them, overcome the racial barrier that divided them, and write a book, which they have subtitled Our memoir of injustice and redemption.”Nevertheless, Thompson says, she still lives with constant pain that my profound mistake cost him so dearly______ (5)”46 (单项选择题)
