试题内容
Simon: 
I work not because I like it but that I have to, so I often count the minutes until stopping work or holidays. However, my sister is totally different. She enjoys her work so much that she often spends extra time on her job even take work home with her. I think she is so crazy about work just as some people are about drugs or alcohol. I could hardly understand it. 

Matthew: 
Work is a core element of our lives. It gives us a sense of identity in the larger world outside the personal circle of family and friends. However, there are some people for whom work occupies an even more central place in their lives. Workaholics are a stereotype of modem life, and they are both praised and criticized. On the one hand, it may be the accepted way of earning promotion. On the other hand, workaholics are often viewed as neglecting aspects of life such as family and leisure that are important for maintaining a healthy equilibrium. 

Andrew: 
In cities, workaholism is so common that people do not regard it as unusual. I think workaholics prefer to work rather than do anything else because they don't know how to kill time if they don't work. They can only get pleasure from work. Work is everything for them. 

Colin: 
Workaholism is dangerous in a sense because it can cause some problems. First of all, workaholics often have health problems because they don't have time to relax and keep themselves occupied all the time. Secondly, their family life is not happy since they spend little time with their family. Their marriage may even ends in divorce. 

Vincent: 
Being a workaholic can mean you achieve great things, but more people achieve great things without being addicted to work. Workaholics need time away from work and when I say "away from" I mean psychologically distanced from it as well as physically. If you are still obsessing about work when you should be focused on your loved ones or an outside of work activity then you are still basically working. 
Now match the name of each person (36-40) to the appropriate statement.

            • 解题思路:西蒙: 
              我工作不是因为我喜欢它而是因为我必须工作,所以我经常一分一秒地数着上班时间,直到下班或者放假?可是我的姐姐和我完全不同。她非常喜欢自己的工作,以至于经常加班,甚至把工作带回家做。我想她对工作的痴狂程度就像那些毒品或酒精上瘾的人一样我很难理解。 
              马修: 
              工作是我们生活中的一个核心部分。除去我们的亲友圈子,在此外的更大空间里,工作能给我们一种身份感。不过有一些人却让工作占据了他们生活中更为中心的住置。工作狂是现代生活中的典型人群.人们对他们褒贬不一。一方面,做工作狂是得到升职的一条可行之路。另一方面,工作狂们经常被认为是忽视生活的一群人,比如他们忽视家庭,不懂休闲,而这些对于维持身体健康和生活平衡却很重要。 
              安德鲁: 
              在城市,工作狂现象非常普遍,以至于人们对此习以为常。我认为工作狂们喜欢工作胜过一切是因为他们不知道如果不工作的话,时间该怎么打发。他们只能从工作中得到乐趣。对他们来说工作就是一切。 
              科林: 
              从某种意义上说,工作狂症状是危险的,因为它会引发一些问题。首先,工作狂们经常会有一些健康问题,因为他们没有时间放松,他们把所有的时间都给自己安排满了。其次,他们的家庭生活也不会幸福,因为他们很少花时间和家人相聚。他们的婚姻最终甚至会以离婚收场。 
              文森特: 
              成为一个工作狂可能意味着你有很大的成就,不过更多的人不是工作狂也取得了很大的成就。工作狂们需要一些时间远离工作。我说的“远离工作”意思不仅包括身体上远离工作,而且精神上也要远离。如果在应该专心关心你爱的人或者参加其他活动时,你的头脑中还是念念不忘工作的话,你其实仍然还在工作。
