8.It has long been part of folk wisdom that birth order strongly affects personality. However, most of the research claiming that firstborns are radically different from other children has been 38 . It now seems that any effects of birth order on personality will likely be washed out by all the other influences in a person’s life. 39 , the belief in the permanent impact of birth order, according to Toni Falbo, a social psychologist at the University of Texas at Austin, “comes from the psychological theory that your personality is fixed by the time you are six. That 40 simply is incorrect.” The better, later and larger studies are less likely to find birth order a useful predictor of anything. When two Swiss social scientists, Cecile Ernst and Jules Angst, 41 1,500 studies a few years ago, they concluded that “birth-order differences in personality are nonexistent in our sample” and that “in particular, there is no evidence for a ‘firstborn personality.’”

17. What is happiness? In the United States and in many other industrialized countries, it is often equated with money. Economists measure consumer confidence on the assumption that the resulting figure says something about progress and public welfare. The gross domestic product is routinely used as shorthand for the well-being of a nation. But the small Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan has been trying a different idea. In 1972, concerned about the problems afflicting other developing countries that focused only on economic growth, Bhutan’s newly crowned leader, King Wangchuck, decided to make the gross national happiness a priority in his kingdom. Bhutan, the king said, needed to ensure that prosperity was shared across society and that it was balanced against preserving cultural traditions, protecting the environment, and maintaining a responsive government. While household incomes in Bhutan remain among the world’s lowest, life expectancy increased by 19 years from 1984 to 1998, jumping to 66 years. The country, which is preparing to shift to a constitution and an elected government, requires that at least 60 percent of its lands remain forested, welcomes a limited stream of wealthy tourists, and exports hydropower to India.
【題組】17. What is the result of King Wangchuck’s policies?
