You can usually tell when your friends are happy or angry by the looks on their faces or by theiractions. This is useful because reading their emotional expressions helps you to know how to respond tothem. Emotions have evolved to help us respond to important situations and to convey our intentions toothers. But does raising the eyebrows and rounding the mouth say the same thing in Minneapolis as itdoes in Madagascar? Much research on emotional expressions has centered on such questions. According to Paul Ekman, the leading researcher in this area, people speak and understandsubstantially the same "facial language". Studies by Ekmans group have demonstrated that humans sharea set of universal emotional expressions that testify to the common biological heritage of the humanspecies. Smiles, for example, signal happiness and frowns indicate sadness on the faces of people in suchfar- flung places as Argentina, Japan, Spain, Hungary, Poland , Sumatra ,the United States, Vietnam, thejungles of New Guinea , and the Eskimo villages north of Artic Circle. Ekman and his colleagues claimthat people everywhere can recognize at least seven basic emotions: sadness, fear, anger, disgust,contempt, happiness, and surprise. There are, however, huge differences across cultures in both thecontext and intensity of emotional displays - the so called display rules. In many Asian cultures, forexample, children are taught to control emotional responses - especially negative ones- while manyAmerican children are encouraged to express their feelings more openly. Regardless of culture, however,emotions usually show themselves, to some degree , in peoples behavior. From their first days of life,babies produce facial expressions that communicate their feelings. The ability to read facial expressions develops early, too. Very young children pay close attentionto facial expressions, and by age five, they nearly equal adults in their skill at reading emotions onpeoples faces. This evidence all points to a biological underpinning for our abilities to express andinterpret a basic set of human emotions. Moreover, as Charles Darwin pointed out over a century ago,some emotional expressions seem to appear across species boundaries. Cross - cultural psychologists tellus that certain emotional responses carry different meanings in different cultures. For example, whatemotion do you suppose might be conveyed by sticking out your tongue? For Americans, this mightindicate disgust, while in China it can signify surprise. Likewise, a grin on an American face may indicatejoy, while on a Japanese face it may just as easily mean embarrassment. Clearly, culture influencesemotional expressions. Câu 41.

Many studies on emotional expressions try to answer the question whether_______ A. different cultures have similar emotional expressions.

D. raising the eyebrows has similar meaning to rounding the mouth. Câu 43. The word " evolved" in line 3 is closest in meaning to _______ A. increased B. simplified C. reduced D. developed Câu 44.

You can usually tell when your friends are happy or angry by the looks on their faces or by theiractions. This is useful because reading their emotional expressions helps you to know how to respond tothem. Emotions have evolved to help us respond to important situations and to convey our intentions toothers. But does raising the eyebrows and rounding the mouth say the same thing in Minneapolis as itdoes in Madagascar? Much research on emotional expressions has centered on such questions.
    • According to Paul Ekman, the leading researcher in this area, people speak and understandsubstantially the same "facial language". Studies by Ekmans group have demonstrated that humans sharea set of universal emotional expressions that testify to the common biological heritage of the humanspecies. Smiles, for example, signal happiness and frowns indicate sadness on the faces of people in suchfar- flung places as Argentina, Japan, Spain, Hungary, Poland , Sumatra ,the United States, Vietnam, thejungles of New Guinea , and the Eskimo villages north of Artic Circle. Ekman and his colleagues claimthat people everywhere can recognize at least seven basic emotions: sadness, fear, anger, disgust,contempt, happiness, and surprise. There are, however, huge differences across cultures in both thecontext and intensity of emotional displays - the so called display rules. In many Asian cultures, forexample, children are taught to control emotional responses - especially negative ones- while manyAmerican children are encouraged to express their feelings more openly. Regardless of culture, however,emotions usually show themselves, to some degree , in peoples behavior. From their first days of life,babies produce facial expressions that communicate their feelings. The ability to read facial expressions develops early, too. Very young children pay close attentionto facial expressions, and by age five, they nearly equal adults in their skill at reading emotions onpeoples faces. This evidence all points to a biological underpinning for our abilities to express andinterpret a basic set of human emotions. Moreover, as Charles Darwin pointed out over a century ago,some emotional expressions seem to appear across species boundaries. Cross - cultural psychologists tellus that certain emotional responses carry different meanings in different cultures. For example, whatemotion do you suppose might be conveyed by sticking out your tongue? For Americans, this mightindicate disgust, while in China it can signify surprise. Likewise, a grin on an American face may indicatejoy, while on a Japanese face it may just as easily mean embarrassment. Clearly, culture influencesemotional expressions. Câu 41. According to the passage, we respond to others by _______ . A. observing their looks B. observing their emotional expressions C. looking at their faces D. watching their actions Câu 42. Many studies on emotional expressions try to answer the question whether_______ A. raising the eyebrows has similar meaning to rounding the mouth. B. different cultures have similar emotional expressions. C. rounding the mouth has the same meaning in Minneapolis and Madagascar. D. eyebrow raising means the same in Minneapolis and Madagascar.

Paul Ekman is mentioned in the passage as an example of _______ A. researchers who can speak and understand many languages B. lacked many main ingredients C. researchers on universal language D. investigators on universal emotional expressions Câu 45. Smiles and frowns _______ . A. are not popular everywhere B. have different meanings in different cultures C. are universal expressions across cultures D. do not convey the same emotions in various cultures Câu 46. The biggest difference lies in _______ . A. how often positive emotions are shown B. how long negative emotions are displayed C. how emotional responses are controlled D. how intensive emotions are expressed Câu 47.

You can usually tell when your friends are happy or angry by the looks on their faces or by theiractions. This is useful because reading their emotional expressions helps you to know how to respond tothem. Emotions have evolved to help us respond to important situations and to convey our intentions toothers. But does raising the eyebrows and rounding the mouth say the same thing in Minneapolis as itdoes in Madagascar? Much research on emotional expressions has centered on such questions. According to Paul Ekman, the leading researcher in this area, people speak and understandsubstantially the same "facial language". Studies by Ekmans group have demonstrated that humans sharea set of universal emotional expressions that testify to the common biological heritage of the humanspecies. Smiles, for example, signal happiness and frowns indicate sadness on the faces of people in suchfar- flung places as Argentina, Japan, Spain, Hungary, Poland , Sumatra ,the United States, Vietnam, thejungles of New Guinea , and the Eskimo villages north of Artic Circle. Ekman and his colleagues claimthat people everywhere can recognize at least seven basic emotions: sadness, fear, anger, disgust,contempt, happiness, and surprise. There are, however, huge differences across cultures in both thecontext and intensity of emotional displays - the so called display rules. In many Asian cultures, forexample, children are taught to control emotional responses - especially negative ones- while manyAmerican children are encouraged to express their feelings more openly. Regardless of culture, however,emotions usually show themselves, to some degree , in peoples behavior. From their first days of life,babies produce facial expressions that communicate their feelings. The ability to read facial expressions develops early, too. Very young children pay close attentionto facial expressions, and by age five, they nearly equal adults in their skill at reading emotions onpeoples faces. This evidence all points to a biological underpinning for our abilities to express andinterpret a basic set of human emotions. Moreover, as Charles Darwin pointed out over a century ago,some emotional expressions seem to appear across species boundaries. Cross - cultural psychologists tellus that certain emotional responses carry different meanings in different cultures. For example, whatemotion do you suppose might be conveyed by sticking out your tongue? For Americans, this mightindicate disgust, while in China it can signify surprise. Likewise, a grin on an American face may indicatejoy, while on a Japanese face it may just as easily mean embarrassment. Clearly, culture influencesemotional expressions. Câu 41.
