Smart people more likely to fail driving test

聰明人考駕照更可能失敗

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

The brighter you are, the less likely you are to pass your driving test first time, a new study concludes. By contrast, motorists with fewer academic qualifications are more likely to pass first time.

一項新研究推斷,你愈是聰明,愈不可能首次就通過駕照考試。對照之下,擁有較低學歷的駕駛,更有可能首試過關。

Insurers Privilege DriveXpert conducted the analysis of 1,564 people with a full UK driving licence and found that 59 percent of those with no qualifications passed first time. People who had undergraduate degrees had a first time pass rate of 48 percent.

保險公司Privilege DriveXpert對英國擁有完整駕照的1564人進行分析,發現59%沒有學歷資格的人首次即通過考試;擁有大學學歷者首次通過率則為48%。

Interestingly, people who studied maths and science needed more attempts to get their licence than those more arts and culture inclined. Experts suspect motorists with more academic minds may over-think the challenge they face.

有趣的是,相較於傾向藝術與文化的人,學習數學與科學的人,需要更多嘗試才能取得駕照。專家推測,較有學術頭腦的駕駛,可能過度思考他們面對的挑戰。

Dr Lee Hadlington, senior lecturer in Psychology at De Montfort University said: ’Those who don’t have formal academic qualifications could rely more heavily on procedural skills like motor control and hand-eye co-ordination, hence may be better suited to activities like passing a driving test.’

德蒙福特大學心理學高級講師李.海林頓博士表示:「那些沒有正式學歷證明的人,可能更高度依賴程序技術,例如運動控制或手眼協調,因此可能更適合通過駕照考試之類的活動。」
