Unit 06 : FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS
KEEP COOL
Read the text carefully then answer the given questions
FEELINGS
British and American people are similar in many ways, but in expressingfeelings they haven’t much in common. Nearly all Americans believe thatit is better to share what they think or feel than hide it .A greatmany of them except their relatives and friends to say, “I love you”,“I care for you”, or “ I ‘m glad to have a friend like you” Almost allof them enjoy talking about their own experiences , and a few of themwill go so far as to share ideas with foreign visitors the first timethey come into contact with them . When some of them are upset theyprefer to cry than retain their tears .Few Americans consider it bad toshow anger in public. The great majority of them would rather let allof it out and say what they feel than bottle it up inside and makematters worse.(§1)
In contrast to this is the traditional Britishreserve, a national tendency to avoid showing strong emotion of anykind. The British like to keep a stiff upper lip. In other words, theydon’t like showing or talking about their feelings. They rather preferhiding them because people who reveal their emotions are thought to beweak and bad- mannered. For example , showing anger in public isconsidered to be a sign that a person hasn’t much character. So fewBritish people would dare vent even a little anger in public places.They give little attention to people who complain in public i.e , aboutbeing kept waiting in a traffic jam or in a restaurant .They maypretend not to hear them in order to avoid getting involved.(§2)
This attitude is far less common today than it used to be , but a lotof British people , especially among the elderly, still take a greatdeal of trouble to appear strong .Most British men and women are stillembarrassed when they see somebody crying , and do not know whether itis better to pretend they have not noticed or to try and comfort them.Women are more likely to respond than men and will put their arm roundthe person or touch their shoulder.(§3)
Many British youths nowshow feelings of affection in public. Women sometimes kiss each otheron the cheek as a greeting and people may greet or say good bye to eachother with a hug. Lovers hold hands in public and sometimes embrace andkiss each other, but many elderly people do not like to see this.However , when British people are part of a crowd they are lessworried about expressing their emotions. Football crowds sing and cheerwhen they score. Even cricket supporters, who had a reputation forbeing much quieter, enjoy cheering as well as giving the tradionalpolite applause (§4)
