  《赫芬顿邮报》中的前七段原文:

  While the subway’s arrival may be ambiguous, one thing about
yourcommute is certain: No one wants to talk to each other. In our
contemporaryculture, the prospect of communicating with — or even
looking at — a strangeris virtually unbearable. Everyone around us
seems to agree by the way theyfiddle with their phones, even without a
signal underground。

  It’s a sad reality — our desire to avoid interacting with
otherhuman beings — because there’s much to be gained from talking to
the strangerstanding by you. But you wouldn’t know it, plugged into your
phone. Thisuniversal armor sends the message: “Please don’t approach
me.”

原文题目为。原文题目为。原文题目为。  What is it that makes us feel we need to hide behind our screens?

  One answer is fear, according to Jon Wortmann, executive mentalcoach
and author of “Hijacked by Your Brain: How to Free Yourself WhenStress
Takes Over.” We fear rejection, or that our innocent socialadvances will
be misinterpreted as “creepy,” he told The HuffingtonPost. We fear we’ll
be judged. We fear we’ll be disruptive。

原文题目为。  Strangers are inherently unfamiliar to us, so we are more likely
tofeel anxious when communicating with them compared with our friends
andacquaintances. To avoid this anxiety, we turn to our phones.
“Phonesbecome our security blanket,” Wortmann says. “They are our
happyglasses that protect us from what we perceive is going to be
moredangerous.”

  But once we rip off the bandaid, tuck our smartphones in our
pocketsand look up, it doesn’t hurt so bad. In one 2011 experiment,
behavioralscientists Nicholas Epley and Juliana Schroeder asked
commuters to do theunthinkable: Start a conversation. The duo had
Chicago train commuters talk totheir fellow passengers. “When Dr. Epley
and Ms. Schroeder asked otherpeople in the same train station to predict
how they would feel after talkingto a stranger, the commuters thought
their ride would be more pleasant if theysat on their own,” the New York
Times summarizes. Though the participantsdidn’t expect a positive
experience, after they went through with theexperiment, “not a single
person reported having been snubbed.”

原文题目为。原文题目为。  In fact, these commutes were reportedly more enjoyable compared
withthose sans communication, which makes absolute sense, since human
beings thriveoff of social connections. It’s that simple: Talking to
strangers can make youfeel connected. The train ride is a fortuity for
social connection — “thestuff of life,” Wortmann says. Even seemingly
trivial interactions canboost mood and increase the sense of belonging.
A study similar in hypothesisto Eply and Schroder’s published in Social
Psychological & PersonalityScience asked participants to smile, make eye
contact and chat with theircashier. Those who engaged with the cashier
experienced better moods — andeven reported a better shopping
experience than those who avoided superfluousconversation。(文都供稿)
