    Wonder why some wealthy people seem so aloof? How about this for an answer?

    想知道为什么有钱人都看起来冷冰冰的吗?看看下面的评释吧。

    A series of studies published in Psychological Science found that money can influence responses to both emotional and physical pain. The researchers found that handling physical money makes a person less sensitive to physical pain and reduces the distress of being excluded in social situations.

    《生理科学》揭晓的一系列研究功效表现,款项可以影响一个人私家对激情和心理疾苦的回响。研究职员发明,摸钱能低落人对心理疾苦的敏感程度,并减轻人在社会中被排出在外时的疾苦感。

    In other words, wealth makes you as hard and cold as steel. Or so the study says.

    换言之,工业能让你变得像钢铁一样又硬又冷。至少这份研究呈报是这么说的。

    The methodologies for this study were odd to say the least.

    不过退一步讲,此次研究的要领极端瑰异。

    For one of the tests, test subjects were told to count out a stack of $100 dollar bills and then immerse their hands in hot water. Those who handled the money reported less pain than those who handled slips of blank paper.

    其中一个测试要求一组受测者数一沓100美元面额的钞票,然后将手浸入热水中。这组的疾苦程度不及另一数白纸、然后手浸热水的比较组。

    In another, a group of students counted the stack of $100 bills and then played a computer game involving a ball toss with three other simulated players. Some of the players were excluded from the ball toss during the game. Those who handled the money felt little or no distress at being excluded, while those who handled paper felt lower self-esteem.

    在另一个测试中,一组门生先数了百元年夜钞,然后起头玩计较机游戏,其中一个是和三个措施模拟的对手玩投球游戏。有一些受测者被排出在了游戏之外,那些数过钱的门生对遭排出一事险些绝不沮丧,而那些数白纸的人则感受自尊心受到了危险。

    "Acquired symbolic value of money, perhaps because of associations with power or control, can influence responses to both emotional and physical pain," writes Harriet de Wit, a psychiatry professor at the University of Chicago. "Conversely, thoughts of monetary loss may enhance physical or psychological pain."

    芝加哥年夜学精神病学教授韦特写道:"得到款项的象征意义可以影响一个人私家对激情和肉体疾苦的回响,这或者是由于它与权利或节制力相接洽相关;反之,破财的动机年夜概会加重人的肉体或心理疾苦。"

    Do you think the studies findings are accurate? Does money dull physical or emotional pain?

    你以为这份研究呈报的功效切确吗?款项是否会麻醉人们肉体和精神上的疾苦?
