Can you explain "Normal"? What does it mean to be normal as a human being? What is called normal. Is'nt it just nice to enjoy life and be a little un normal? What do you think?

What is the average human being? How do you know someone has plus points? When someone does not have plus points, are they less normal? Sometimes I think life is more fun when people think you are not normal. hahaha!

I agree, fun is a different thing for everyone. Dominating people? Some people like it to be dominated. So even there you can find a balance. Have a nice day.

Normalcy can actually be objective and subjective. Objective when normal and abnormal values can be represented by numbers or figures. For example, blood sugar. It is considered normal if it falls within the normal range. Too much or too less can both lead to serious problems. If subjective however, like a way of life, one really can't tell which is normal or abnormal. Sometimes, we get used to our ways of life that when a person comes along who has a lot of differences, we consider that person abnormal. Although for him, that's his normal. We should all try to respect other people's differences, and preferences, but even that isn't as easy as it sounds. You are right, let us just enjoy life. And we must live fully but responsibly. NOt trampling on other people's own lives. Have a great day!

Very well put! I like the way you explained that. People all around me, my whole life seem to know everything better. Telling me to grow up and act normal. When I think I am acting very normal. Every once in a while a little childish, but is that wrong? Life is suppose to be nice and fun. Shouldn't we be happy?

To me, being normal is to be perfect, which is impossible in this sinful fallen world.

Hi Rozie!!! How are you? Yes, I totally agree with you. While growing up my parents would always tell me to be normal. Last week I told my Mom I wanted to do babysitting jobs. Again she was telling me to be normal and acting like I was being stupid again. I can't seem to do anything right. Maybe I am stupid, I don't now anymore.

Normal people are people who think and act straight. They are not weird and can reason out things. Abnormal people are have short circuit. Their brains are not functioning properly and can't differentiate the right from the wrong. They are insane. Maybe if you are bored with normal life then it might be good to become abnormal so expect others to treat you abnormally.

Think and act straight you say? What is thinking and acting straight? I don't think I have ever met a human being who functions properly. Have you?

I think they do studies and find the average,responses of the responders and call this normal! So if you base it on this no one would be considered absolutely normal! tdemex

True, and most of the time you and I are never asked anything. Then they state that so many% Americans (Europeans) have declared this or that. When in fact you were never asked. How can they base something on that? But, they do.
