不管到哪里,身边可能都会有这么一类人,他们最常说的一个词是“是的”,最常说的一句话是“我完全同意”。当然,这些话主要是对领导说的。反正,领导说什么都能从他们那里得到完全一致的反馈,难怪外国人管这些人叫echo chamber1(回声筒)呢。

Echo chamber refers to a person who totally, obsequiously2 agrees with everything another person says, just like an echo chamber that is used to produce echoing sounds, usually for recording3 purposes.

这里的“回声筒”指的是某人为了献媚而完全同意另一个人所说的一切,就像录音时用来制造回声效果的回声筒一样。

For example:

During the meeting my boss Jeremy calls on Jason, who’s a well-known management echo chamber to ask if Jason thinks the Company’s new and much stricter Internet policy is a fair one.

开会的时候,我的老板杰瑞米让杰森发表意见,问他公司新推出的更加严格的网络政策是否公平,我们都知道杰森是管理层的“回声筒”。
