普特:读小说开阔视野(双语)

       小说经常被视为“闲书”,很多小伙伴读小说主要是为了消遣,其实文学作品阅读对大家的帮助远不止这些,除了帮我们消磨时光之外还非常有利于开阔我们的视野,具体情况一起来看看这篇来自普特英语的分析文章吧,以后写读书的益处这类英语作文的时候,也许会用到它哦~~


Eye-Opening Facts About Fiction
Literary Thinking
Reading literature doesn’t just flex your powers of imagination, it also expands your capacity for creative reasoning. A 2013 study at the University of Toronto has shown that reading literature is excellent mental “conditioning” for becoming more open‑minded.

It turns out that reading fictional stories prompts a mental response that’s distinct from what happens when we read nonfiction texts like newspapers and essays. Literature releases you from the pressures of real‑world decision‑making, and lets you enter the mindset of characters who are often very different from yourself.

The Great Escape
You may not be as imaginative or impulsive as Anne of Green Gables, but reading helps you see the world through her eyes. And while reading about and thinking like Anne, you’re reducing what psychologists call your need for “cognitive closure.”

People who need a lot of cognitive closure get frustrated or anxious when they face confusing or complex situations. They often jump to conclusions before fully thinking through things.

This “closed” mental state can be damaging to rationality and creativity. Luckily, though, the simple act of cracking open a book and diving into its literary world opens the brain up to new ways of thinking.

文学思维

阅读文学作品并不只是能够锻炼你的想象力而已,它还能拓展的你的创造力。2013年多伦多大学的一项研究表明:阅读文学作品是一种极好的精神调节方式,它能够使思维更加开阔。

实际上,阅读小说故事所引发的心理反应与阅读报纸、散文这类非虚构类文体的心理反应是截然不同的。文学将你从现实世界的决策压力中释放出来,把你带进一个与你自身完全不同的人物思维中。

大逃离
也许你并不像《清秀佳人》中的安妮那样充满想象力,或是如她那般性格冲动。但阅读能帮助你透过她的眼睛看见这个世界。并且当你像安妮那样阅读和思考时,你也是在降低你的“需求”,心理学家称之为“认知闭合”。

一些人会在面临令人困惑复杂的情况时变得受挫或焦虑,这时他们便需要一系列的认知闭合。他们经常还没有思考完全就妄下定论。

这种“闭合的”精神状态会对理性及创造力进行破坏。不过幸运的是,打开一本书并投入其中的文学世界中这样一个简单的举动就能够开放你的大脑,获得一种全新的思维方式。
