常用短语回顾

breadth requirements  美国大学中要求学生注册的专业课以外的课程

Advanced Placement Course AP课程是大学先修课,即在高中修读大学一年级课程。

Just as a glimpse(n.瞥见) inside a bedroom or office provides clues about someone'scharacter, so can a peek(n.瞥,偷看) at his music collection.

The question "What kind of music do you like?" is sorevealing (adj.能透露内情的,有启发的), it is the number one topic of conversation among young adults whoare getting to know each other, according to psychologists Jason Rentfrow ofthe University of Cambridge in the U.K., and Sam Gosling at the University ofTexas at Austin.  What do your tunes(n.曲调,这里泛指音乐)say about you?

Smart Sounds

Fans of jazz, classical and other "complex" musictypically have above-average IQ scores.

Easy Listeners

Fans of country and Top 40 hits tend to be more conventional(adj.传统的), honestand conservative(adj.保守的) compared with fans of other genres(n.类别)."People who like country and pop might be more simpleminded (adj.率真的,头脑简单的),and that's not necessarily bad," says Rentfrow. "They just avoidmaking things unnecessarily complex."

Brain Invasion(n.入侵)

Whether you can study or work efficiently while listening to musicmay depend on how outgoing you are. Background music can help extroverts (n.外向的人) focus,but tends to torment (v.折磨) introverts (n.内向的人).

Motormouths (n.说话快并且交谈)

Fans of energetic music like dance and soul are more likely toimpulsively(adv.冲动地) blurt out (突然说出口)their thoughts, compared with fans of other styles.
