內容簡介


上班路上在路上被石頭絆倒的時候,想到路邊的人都看到了,內心尷尬不已……

有時候覺得出錯時大家都在看著你,這種狀況被稱為聚光燈效應(Spotlight Effect),不過其實大家根本都在煩惱自己的事,根本沒時間管你。

過了幾十年,突然想起高中某次走出女廁,才發現裙子卡在內褲頭,但還是羞愧地想把頭塞進土裡?


這種狀況是羞愧綜合症(Cringe Attacks),這是因為人類通常會記住產生強烈情緒的事件,例如把生日和把裙子卡在內褲頭的那時刻。

自稱尷尬了一輩子的作者梅莉莎‧達爾,在這本書中用科學的角度來分析尷尬這種情緒、我們為何會覺得感尬、還有如何和尷尬和平相處。了解尷尬的理論後,你就會發現這些尷尬時刻就是測試自己的好機會,別人都在假裝沒事的時候,你可以勇敢的面對自己。

最棒的是,終於可以放過自己一馬了!不再糾結這些無法挽救的事件,換個想法,改變面對這些事件的方式,也就可以往前邁進一步!

New York magazine's "Science of Us" editor explains the compelling psychology of awkwardness, and why learning to accept your cringeworthy moments can be a social advantage.

Have you ever said goodbye to someone, only to discover that you're both walking in the same direction? Or had your next thought fly out of your brain in the middle of a presentation? Or accidentally liked an old photo on someone's Instagram or Facebook, thus revealing yourself to be a creepy social media stalker?

Melissa Dahl, editor of New York magazine's "Science of Us" website, has experienced all of those awkward situations, and many more. Now she offers a thoughtful, original take on what it really means to feel awkward. She invites you to follow her into all sorts of mortifying moments, such as reading her middle school diary on stage in front of hundreds of strangers, striking up conversations with busy New Yorkers on the subway, and even taking improv comedy lessons. She also draws on research to answer questions you've probably pondered at some point, such as:

●Why are situations without clear rules most likely to turn awkward?
● Are people really judging us as harshly as we think they are?
●Does anyone ever truly outgrow their awkward teenage self?

If you can learn to tolerate life's most cringeworthy situations -- networking, difficult conversations, hearing the sound of your own terrible voice -- your awkwardness can be a secret weapon to making better, more memorable impressions. When everyone else is pretending to have it under control, you can be a little braver and grow a little bigger.
