你是否曾经在 Google 中搜索过自己的名字, 看看别人怎么评价自己? 几乎每个人都或多或少地干过这个事情. 事实上, 如果你还没有 Google 过自己的名字我认为你应该试一下——须知了解一个不甚熟悉的人的最佳方式便是 Google 他一下, 这决定别人对你的预判断. 知道你在别人眼中的形象, 是很重要的.

在 Google 中搜索自己的行为被称为 “egogoogling” (用 Google 查找单词ego 的意思). 很多时候这是一个有趣的游戏. 输入你的名字, 在后面再打个 “是”, 并把整个关键词用双引号(“)括起来, 例如这样:

“小明是”

好, 在搜索结果的片段中你也许会发现许多从不知道的东东! 例如, 当我们研究 “小明” 这个名字的时候, 得到下列结果:

  • 小明是一个很混的小孩.
  • 小明是不会这么容易屈服的.
  • 小明是我们的好朋友,而他的体内却繁殖着全世界人民的敌人—艾滋病病毒
  • 小明是老师.

你不仅可以用 Google 来寻找自己的信息 (或者就当开个玩笑好了, 毕竟这世界上很有可能有别的人也叫小明) , 还可以用来寻找那些名人的信息. 例如, 把名人的全名打到 Google 里头, 在后面加上 “是”, 并把整个搜索字段用引号括起来, 像这样

“芙蓉姐姐是”

对知名人士芙蓉姐姐, 我们得到下列结果:

  • 芙蓉姐姐是网络个人时代的 “章子怡”
  • 芙蓉姐姐是一面旗帜
  • 芙蓉姐姐是覆盖全亚洲的具邪教 性质的黑社会香主
  • 芙蓉姐姐是一件公共消费品

你也可以用其它关键词, 例如 “生于”, “在” 等来代替 “是”, 获取更多的结果. 你也可以对东西 (而不是人) 进行这些操作. 如 “小笼包” 等等.

如果你不能访问 Google , 这里给出了一些现成的常见名字的结果. (嘻嘻, 中国人起英文名前好像也最好先 Goo 一下)
