D Researchers found that a “name pronunciation effect” played an important role in how people were perceived (感知) by others. They concluded that the easier a person?s name was to say, the better their success was in the workplace and the quicker career advancement (提升) they enjoyed. Their study also found that a simple name improved people?s ability to make new friends. Dr. Simon Laham, who led the study, said people with simple names were generally judged more positively ( 积 极 地 ). “The effect is not because of the length of a name or how foreign-sounding or unusual it is, but rather how easy it is to pronounce,” he said. In their study the team studied the way names can influence a person?s impressions and decision making. They looked at lots of names of 500 university student volunteers from British, Asian, and European backgrounds and a field of 500 lawyers in America. The team found that people with more pronounceable names were more likely to achieve success. They found that American lawyers with easier sounding names got career advancement faster within their law firms. Names including Sherman, Jenkins, Benson, and Angus ranked among the easiest to pronounce, while Farquharson and Loughnane and European names such as Leszczynska were found to be difficult to pronounce. They concluded that a simple name was the key to success. Dr. Laham said the results could have important implications (意义) for how managers dealt with bias (偏见). “It?s important to treat the biases that shape our choices and judgments about others,” he said. “It may help remove bias, leading to fairer, more objective treatment of others.” 22. What factor of a name plays the key role in deciding its effect? A. The length of the name. C. The meaning of the name. D. Whether the name is unusual or not. 23. The underlined part “pronounceable names” in Para. 3 refers to names that A. can be spelled easily B. can?t be pronounced easily . B. The pronunciation of the name.
C. can be pronounced without difficulty D. sound like foreign names 24. Which of the following would Dr. Laham most probably agree with? A. People should use simple names to avoid biases. B. Foreign names are considered to be hard to pronounce.
C. The name effect can be found only in English-speaking countries. D. The study can help people treat those with hard-to-say names more fairly. 25. What?s the main idea of the passage? A. Having an easy-to-say name will help you get quicker career advancement. B. People with hard-to-say names should struggle for fairer treatment. C. People with hard-to-say names should avoid unfair treatment from others. D. The importance of changing hard-to-say names to easy-to-say ones.
