No. It’s a simple word, but it can be so difficult to say. Whether it’s a favor asked by a friend, or a request from a colleague, many people will say “yes” because they hate to let others down and saying “no” makes them feel uncomfortable.

 不,一个简单的字眼,但是却很难启齿。无论是好友的请求还是来自同事的求助,许多人都会回答”是“,因为他们不想让别人失望,并且说不也会让自己觉得不自在。

According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, people will even agree to unethical requests rather than risk the discomfort of saying no. In a recent study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, researchers recruited 25 college students and had them ask 108 strangers to vandalize a library book by writing a word in ink on one of the pages. While many of the strangers pointed out it was the wrong thing to do, or asked the students to take responsibility for any repercussions, half of the strangers agreed to deface the book — much more than the average of 29 percent that the students predicted. “One of our most fundamental needs is for social connection and a feeling that we belong” Vanessa Bohns, who led the study, told The Wall Street Journal. “Saying ‘no’ feels threatening to our relationships.”

《华尔街日报》的一片文章写道:人们甚至于会答应一些不道德不请求,也不愿意去体会说不所带来的不适。《性格与社会心理学公报》最近刊登了一份研究报告,调查者纳入了25名大学生,并让他们去要求108个陌生人通过在图书的每一页都写上字迹来破坏图书馆的书。然而 大多数的陌生人会指出 这是错误的做法,或者是让这些学生为这件事情的任何反响负责,其中一半的陌生人同意损坏书籍,这个数据要超出学生预测的百分之二十九。Vanessa Bohns  这个研究的组织者说:我们最基本的需求之一就是社会交往和归属感,而说不会让我们觉得威胁到我们的关系。
