PROVA DE INGLÊS - Etapa 1 - Manhã24

PROVA DE INGLÊS INSTRUCTIONS: Read the following texts and then complete the statements

with the best answer.

Text 1 - Questions from 25 to 28

‘Looks right to me’

“It is known that people tend to subconsciously prefer the rightmost object in a sequence if given no other choice criteria,” says New Scientist magazine. When researchers at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville laid out a display of four identical items of clothing and asked people to pick which they thought was the best quality, “sure enough about four out of five participants did favour the garment on the right. Yet when asked why they made the choice they did, nobody gave position as a reason. It was always about the fineness of the weave, richer colour or superior texture. This suggests that while we may make our decisions subconsciously, we rationalize them in our consciousness, and the way we do so may be pure fiction or confabulation.”

Text 2 - Questions from 29 to 32

A glass of coffee?

Coffee drinkers can be very particular about their daily cups, writes Tom Stafford, co-author of Mind Hacks: Tips and Tools for Using Your Brain. “Demonstrate this by finding someone with a favourite mug and giving them their morning coffee in a glass instead. The drink tastes exactly the same, but they will be extremely unhappy [. . .] When the brain experiences reward, it triggers a search for the things that might have caused it. You can’t see caffeine directly, so you form a positive attachment to all the things consistently associated with its delivery. First among these is the taste of the drink itself, but they also include things like the place or time of day and, of course, the favourite mug.”

BBC Focus magazine. www. Indekx.com (Globe and Mail) Access: Oct. 2006. (Adapted)
