Can an introvert be a good leader? Research has shown a consistent positive relationship between extraversion and leadership. In groups of strangers,such as a jury(评审团), extraversion predicts who will be selected foreperson of the jury. It's actually likely to be the person who talks the most,and that person is probably an extravert. So, extraverts are more likely to be chosen for leadership positions (what we call leader “emergence”). There is also a positive relationship (although a weaker one) between extraversion and leader effectiveness, particularly evaluated effectiveness of leaders. So it appears that extraverts have_an_edge,_but does this mean that introverts can't be good leaders? Of course not ! Many successful leaders are introverted, for example Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, and in business, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. One of the best company presidents that I've known was easily the most introverted person among his executive team, but he was very successful and his colleagues admired his “quiet reserve and confidence”. So what is the critical factor that both extraverts and introverts need to emerge as a leader and to be effective?
6

Our research has suggested that the key element is good interpersonal, or social, skills. In one study, looked at the relationship of extraversion to leadership emergence and effectiveness we and found that the advantage that extraverts had disappeared when we put social skills into the equation(方程式). In other words,only extraverts who possessed social skills were effective leaders. Good interpersonal skills are critical whether the leader is an extravert or an introvert. In addition, know that we are more likely to choose leaders who look like their prototypes we of leaders—they speak well, interact well with others, and just look “leader-like”. Extraverts just naturally look more like a prototypical(典型的) leader, particularly political leaders, than do introverts. Think of the U.S. presidential campaign where presidential hopefuls were evaluated for how much each looked like he or she could be the Commander-in-Chief. The key to leadership success then is to develop the people skills needed to look like a leader, but to also develop the good leader-follower relationships that are necessary for success. If you possess these skills,introversion and extraversion don't matter very much. ( )59. What do the underlined words “have an edge” in the third paragraph mean?

A. Lack effectiveness. B. Have an advantage. C. Are less confident. D. Are more aggressive. ( )60. What can we infer from the passage? A. There is a positive relationship between introversion and leadership. B. The more introverted leaders in a team are,the more admired they will be. C. Good interpersonal skills play a key role in making people effective leaders. D. Political leaders are more likely to be extroverts than introverts. ( )61. Why does the author mention the U.S. presidential election campaign? A. To indicate the importance of developing people skills. B. To show the advantages of being introverted people. C. To tell readers how to become a prototypical leader. D. To suggest the uniqueness of being political leaders. ( )62. The author writes the passage mainly to ________. A. compare the differences of introversion and extroversion B. encourage its readers to be more introverted C. argue that introverts can also be good leaders D. inform readers how to become a good leader C It was a sunny holiday Monday. Olivier Ferrante was cooking sausages on the barbecue and entertaining friends in his garden north of Paris when the phone rang. The call came from the BEA, France's air accidents investigation bureau(调查局), where the 38-year-old former football player and driver was an investigator. The news was grim. “An Airbus is missing over the Atlantic: we need you.” As a safety investigator,Ferrante and his teams had participated, directly and indirectly,in the recovery of crashed planes from the Red Sea, the Black Sea,and every ocean. But this investigation would be his toughest ever: the plane had disappeared without a witness, or a trace on radar(雷达). At least eight ships and a dozen military aircraft gathered on the plane's last known position,
7

about halfway between Brazil and Western Africa. After six days the aircraft's tail fin(尾翼) and 50 bodies were spotted on the surface and the first burning questions were answered. The plane wreckage(残骸) and passenger injuries indicated the doomed Airbus was unbroken when it hit the water. It was not exploded apart by a bomb or lightning, now broken up by violent weather. Strangely, no mayday(求救) message had been sent by its pilots. Ferrante worked energetically with his team:collecting offers of help from around the world, consulting navy ministries and research organizations in France and elsewhere, and contracting suitable ships and high-tech equipment. He would not return home for another 29 days. His team used the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle(AUV) operated around the clock, searching about 400 square kilometers a day. But the race against time was lost and no signals were heard and no more wreckage was found. Day after day, the screen remained bare except for objects that turned out to be stones or garbage from ships. Stressed by media attention and painful meetings with victims' relatives,Ferrante went jogging one day to clear his head. Then he had an idea. He decided to look at what had happened to nine other planes that crashed after something abruptly went wrong while flying at high altitude. He found that none had traveled more than 30 km before hitting the sea; most covered less than half that distance. AUV operations continued but now they focused on a 30 km circle around the plane's last known position. On the ninth day of the new-strategy searching, after searching for 22 months, their hard work paid off finally. The first thing they saw was a woman's handbag. Next,they saw bits of twisted aircraft parts and a panel(平板) with “AF” painted on it. Without a doubt,this was the missing Aribus,lying 11 km northeast of its last known position, but nobody felt much like cheering the discovery. “The screen also exposed well-preserved human bodies,and for some of us they were hard to look at,” says Ferrante. ( )63. What happened to the plane? A. It exploded 11 km northeast of its last known position. B. It was seen crashed over the Atlantic Ocean. C. Something was wrong with its tail fin so that it went missing. D. It was flying at high altitude before going missing. ( )64. What made it take so long a time to find the missing Airbus? A. The investigators were not working hard as it was holiday time. B. No mayday message was sent by its pilots before crashing. C. Not enough investigating force was put into the searching work. D. The strategy used in the first stage of the search was not effective. ( )65. Which of the following about Olivier Ferrante can NOT be evidenced in the story? A. Devoted. B. Intelligent. C. Experienced. D. Considerate. ( )66. Based on the passage,which of the following is most probably true? A. All of the people on the plane did not survive this air crash. B. The crashed Airbus plane belonged to Air France. C. No media were watching the search after many failures. D. The bodies of victims were hard to recognize. D

Beautiful people are indeed happier,a new study says,but not always for the same reasons. For handsome men, extra kicks are more likely to come from economic benefits, increased the like wages, while women are more likely to find joy just looking in the mirror. “Women feel that beauty is naturally important,” says Daniel Hamermesh,a University of Texas at Austin labor economist and the study's lead author. “They just feel bad if they're ugly.” Hamermesh is the acknowledged father of pulchronomics, or the economic study of beauty. It can be a dangerous job. He once made angry an audience of young Mormon(魔门教) women, many of whom wished to stay home with future children, by explaining that homemakers tend to be less attractive than their working-girl peers(同伴). “Since beautiful women tend to be paid more,they have more motivation to stay in the work force,” he says. The pursuit of good looks drives several huge industries—in 2010, Americans spent $845 million on face-lifts alone—but few economists focused on beauty's financial power until the mid-1990s,when Hamermesh and his colleague, Jeff Biddle of Michigan State University, became the first scholars to track the effect of appearance on earnings potential for a large sample(样本) of adults. Like many other desirable commodities(商品), “beauty is rare,” Hamermesh says, “and that rareness commands a price.” A handsome man is estimated to make 13 percent more during his career than a “looks- challenged” peer, according to calculations in Hamermesh's recent book, Beauty Pays. Interestingly, the net benefit is slightly less for pretty women, who may make up the difference by trading on their looks to marry men with higher earning potential. And some studies have shown that attractive people are more likely to be hired in a recession(经济衰退). Hamermesh argues that “there's not much we can do to improve our pulchritude(美丽)”. There are even studies suggesting that for every dollar spent on cosmetic(化妆品) products, only 4 cents returns as salary—making lipstick a truly awful investment. ________. One 2006 study showed that the less beautiful may actually profit from their lack of looks. People tend to expect less from the unattractive, so when they go beyond those low expectations they are rewarded. And the beautiful ones are often primarily held to a higher standard— “then hit with a ‘beauty penalty' if they fail to deliver.” Hamermesh says. ( )67. What is the best title of this passage? A. How Much Does Being Attractive Cost? B. How Much Is Being Attractive Worth? C. How Can We Make Use of Our Beauty? D. How Happy Do Attractive People Feel? ( )68. Which of the following is right according to the passage? A. Handsome men are happier because they can make profits from their pulchritude. B. House wives are usually less beautiful and thus less motivated than their working peers. C. Beauty's financial power has long been noticed historically as a most desirable commodity. D. Beautiful women usually make more as they can trade their looks to wealthy and handsome men. ( )69. What is the topic sentence of the last paragraph? A. But inborn beauty isn't always profitable. B. But people always desire to be more beautiful. C. But inborn beauties don't need to improve themselves. D. But being more attractive deserves great efforts. ( )70. Which one of the following words of Hamermesh's can best explain the fact that
9

attractive people are more likely to be hired in a recession? A. “Women feel that beauty is naturally important,” B. “Beauty is rare,and that rareness commands a price.” C. “There's not much we can do to improve our pulchritude.” D. “??, then hit with a ‘beauty penalty’ if they fail to deliver.” 第Ⅱ卷(非选择题 共 35 分) 第五部分:任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) 请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。注意:每个空格只填 1 个单词。 Human capital(资金) flight, more commonly referred to as “brain drain”, is the large-scale emigration(移民) of a large group of individuals with technical skills or knowledge. Although the term originally referred to technology workers leaving a nation, the meaning has broadened into the departure of educated and professional people from one country,economic sector,or field for another,usually for better pay or living conditions. Brain drain is usually regarded as an economic cost,since emigrants usually take with them the part of value of their training sponsored by the government or other organizations. The contrary phenomenon is “brain gain”, which occurs when there is a large-scale immigration of technically qualified persons. The term itself was coined by the Royal Society(英国皇家学会) to describe the emigration of “scientists and technologists” to North America from post-war Europe. Another source indicates that this term was first used in the United Kingdom to describe the influx(流入) of Indian scientist and engineers. The reasons usually include two aspects which respectively(分别地) come from countries and individuals. In terms of countries, reasons may be social environment such as lack of the opportunities, political instability, economic depression, health risks,etc. in source countries and rich chances, political stability and freedom, developed economy, better living conditions, etc. in host countries. In terms of individual reasons, there is family influence(overseas relatives ), and personal preference: preference for exploring,ambition for an improved career,etc. Brain drain is common amongst developing nations,where marketable skills were not financially rewarded. With rapid GDP growth and a higher degree of openness towards the rest of the world, China has also been facing brain drain. There has been upsurge in Chinese emigration to Western countries-particularly the United States,Canada and Australia—since the mid-first decade of the 21st century. China became the biggest worldwide contributor of emigrants in 2007. According to the official Chinese media,65,000 Chinese secured immigration or permanent resident status(地位) in the United States, 25, 000 in Canada and 15, 000 in Australia. The largest group of emigrants consists of professionals and experts with a middle-class background,who are the backbone(骨干) for the development of China. However,in recent years, China's rapid development and the increasing number of international companies registering to do business in China have led many Chinese living abroad to swap their lives there for a new life back in China. According to the government statistics, more than 130 thousand people came back in 2010, more in the following years. Better jobs, special and government policies and more chances to make use of the experience and skills gained abroad

have made the future look bright indeed for the overseas Chinese coming home.

European 77. suffer 78. contributed 79. most 80. returning/coming/back One Possible Version: Since we entered Grade Three, instead of learning from textbooks and other language sources, students in my class have been guided by the teacher to practice a large amount of test papers over and over again. Opinions are divided in our class. To those who agree, this practice can help students achieve high scroes in NMET due to its high pertinence. They also believe students can get knowledge about English by doing exercises. However, many others argue that doing test papers is not learning how to use English but leraning how to pass exams. They strongly hold teachers should teach students how to fish, not just give them fish to feed on. To me, it is not worthwhile to do so many test papers. Firstly, nothing can be more tedious to us teenagers than the endless repetition of doing exercises of the same pattern. Secondly, these exercises contribute nothing to our language ability, even little to our passing NMET. After all, NMET is never testing the exercises we have done, but new ones we've never seen before. Only if we have developed English ability can we achieve high in NMET, and in future use of English as well. 听力材料 Text 1 M:Jessica,could you type this letter for me? W:Sorry.

M: No, like to look through catalogues and do mail order. Recently, been receiving I I've a lot of catalogues and they have some attractive things in them.

He had seen many newly-weds coming into his store to shop for their first refrigerator, washer and dryer,and air-conditioner. Pen and pencil in hand, they would ask him a lot of questions about price, features and after-sale services, but they would usually walk away at the end of their inquiry. The other day a young couple came into his store. They asked him all the usual questions and he answered all of them patiently. But when he suggested an order at the end, they replied firmly,“We'll have to look around other places first.” Although feeling a bit disappointed, Mr. Stevenson did not show it. Instead, he smiled, moved closer and said, “I know you will go to Discount Dan to look at the price tags. That's perfectly understandable. I do the same. In fact, they sell the same stuff as we do. But if you buy things there,there is something you will not get. And that is me. I come with everything I sell. I've been in the business for thirty years and in a few years' time,I'm going to give my stores to my daughter and son-in-law. I hope they will carry on the family business. I stand behind everything I sell and I will make sure that you will never regret buying things from me.” After this short speech, Mr. Stevenson offered the young couple some ice-cream to thank them for their interest. Impressed by his honesty and sincerity,the young couple decided to place an order.
