We are always trying to understand ourselves by asking "Why did I do that?" Certainly it is true that each human being faces the question of understanding himself, even though he may not put this question in so many words. Part of the answer to "Why did I do that?" is found in the way the individual looks upon himself, or the way he sees himself. This is referred to as the individual's self-concept.

It is obvious that we will tend to act with more self-control, and be happier, if we can gradually gain a better understanding of how we ourselves think and act, and what kind of individuals we really are. For example, a young woman may "see herself" as a poor conversationalist and a kind of "wet blanket" when she goes out with her friends. Actually, she is warm and friendly and well liked by all who know her. Here is a case where an individual has formed a "self-concept" which is definitely not in line with the facts. If she could come to realize the true situation, it would in all probability help her overcome this fear of meeting or being with other people. The importance of an individual's "self-concept" in influencing his behavior is plainly evident.

( ) 41. In which subject can this passage be found?

(A) Biology (B) Geography (C) Psychology (D) Physics

( ) 42. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?

(A) If we understand ourselves better, we will be much happier.

(B) Why we did the thing that we did never depends on our self-concept.

(C) An individual's self-concept evidently influences his or her behavior.

(D) We never stop trying to understand our behavior.

( ) 43. Based on the context, the phrase "wet blanket" in the second paragraph most likely means "_______."

(A) a blanket that nobody wants

(B) a blanket that everybody enjoys

(C) a person who doubles other people's fun

(D) a person who spoils other people's fun

( ) 44. According to this passage, which of the following descriptions about the young woman is true?

(A) She identifies herself as an outgoing person, who can make friends easily.

(B) She can become more open-minded to socialize with others as long as she changes the way she sees herself.

(C) She has a high self-esteem, and sees herself as a people person.

(C) the way the individual is respected by others

(D) how the individual is looked upon by others

Say "evolution" and some folks think of dusty archaeologists examining bone fragments. But, while evidence of previous life forms does play a central part in our understanding of evolution, it is not necessary to go on a dig to see it in action-you might just look inside your mouth.

We all learn that human beings have thirty-two teeth. They are not all the same, though; the pointy incisors in the front are easily distinguished from the flatter, double-edged bicuspids that run along the side. Our teeth serve different functions: those incisors are great for biting and holding on, while the bicuspids do more of a saw-motion for chewing.

Now here is something you may not know: strictly speaking, it is not true that everyone has thirty-two teeth. Even excluding people with dental problems, some folks have only thirty, or even twenty-eight. The ones that are missing are often the farthest back in the mouth. Where did they go?

One likely answer is found in evolution. A long time ago-say ten thousand years-human beings ate much more raw meat. With a rough diet, you need lots of grinding teeth to help prepare your food for digestion. Later, with the gradual advent of cooked foods, not all those teeth are needed anymore. If someone is born without them, he or she does not suffer any ill consequence; a scientist would say there is no evolutionary pressure to keep those teeth.
