How do you define normal and is there such a thing? :)

I think this could lead to a very interesting discussion as to what actually defines "normal". It's hard to say, really, because everyone has these little quirks about them that others would find strange. In another light, we are really all pretty much the same. We have the same sorts of tendencies and natures to us that really unites us as a species. I'm probably not articulating this very well, but I'll let you guys discuss this and try to make sense of what i'm saying.

hmm, you go to work every day, you love your wife/ husband, remember anniversaries, remember yours friends birthday, you donīt drink too much, always drive with caution, you are never doing crazy or dangerous things, you worry about loose ends, everyday ordinary stuff...

It's hard to say. I don't consider the word 'normal' to be suitable to describe anyone. Everyone has his/her own qualities and everyone is special in some way, so the word 'normal' can be spoken only by someone's opinion and it differs in many ways...

I'm a student.


you love your wife/ husband

I'm single.


remember anniversaries, remember yours friends birthday

I'm proud to say I do


you donīt drink too much

No comment on this one.


always drive with caution

I don't have a driving licence.


you are never doing crazy or dangerous things

Oh, yeah, I do.


you worry about loose ends, everyday ordinary stuff...

No. That's all. Thank you for your attention. And sorry for the double post.

yep.

also, i've yet to meet a *single* normal person, if we stick to the definition of normal as well-adjusted and devoid of strange quirks, beliefs or behaviors. so there.

oh, and "original" is a pretty worthless concept.

I'm definitely not normal. I'm a unique and special and precious little snowflake.

I mean, that's what we're all taught, no? And at the same time, you're also taught to conform to social norms.....

I think a better topic question would be "What's unique/weird about you"? Which is sort of what you're asking in the part I quoted, but not on the poll question. It's too hard to judge whether or not people are "normal" or not as a whole, for several reasons.

... I like you...

I'm not going to jump on the whole "what IS normal?" bandwagon, because everyone knows how that conversation will go. We've all had it.

I did like the "I tend to be original" option. I don't think it really matters what normal is or how you fit into that standard (or don't). You always hear people say to "be yourself", but its more of a "do what YOU want to do" kind of thing. Whether that amounts to wearing the clothes, walking the walk and talking the talk of your everyday "conformist" or totally being an off the wall character that gets funny looks from everyone, is not important. You've just got to find your own comfort zone, you know?

Now that I am done sounding all philosophical, I must say I love my little quirks. I don't think i'm too out of the ordinary. My friends may argue otherwise, but to them, spontaneity is a foreign concept. I'm kind of into the whole follow-your-whim thing. :D

According to my chem lab partner, however, my quirks basically make me the epitome of cool. :cool:

It's funny, I was having this little mental debate with myself tonight about the BBS, and you hit it bang on. I'm thinking about how the BBS is such a complete and utter waste of my time, and whether I should just cut it altogether. But how I don't want to let it go because there are perhaps a couple dozen pretty damn brilliant (in some sense) people on here that I wouldn't want to lose touch with. But the BBS is probably never going to be used as an outlet for much of that brilliance, so we're all stuck here, trapped. Seeking something we won't find, but not being able to let go. Or maybe it's just me.

SIIIIIIGGGGGHHHH...

I get education purely for a chance to shine on message boards as the intellectual superior to 15 year olds still trying to find themselves and their place in the world.

No, I suppose in the end we're all smart enough to realize that on average we're all pretty stupid, or smart, or the fact that the definitions for such terms are so vague and change depending on situation, just like how 'normal' and 'unique' are concepts whose definitions would vary depending on society, or who in that society you ask. On one hand none of us are living truly non-mainstream life styles, none of us is Amish or living in a hippie commune that grows their own food, similarly none of us is most likely a member of a terrorist organization living in the desert, an animal activist living in an abandoned building etc etc. These are all pretty unique life choices compared to going to work, going to school or being at home for whatever reason (laziness, gap year or between jobs). On the other hand we're not all from the same form, either - some of us have a unique sense of style, some of us enjoy odd foods like tar-flavored candy or parmesan on steaks, a lot of us enjoy things the people around us hate, or hate the things people around us love, and for that we feel like we stand out in some way.

I suppose in a way it's not a question of whether we ARE normal as that invites having to define what normal (or un-normal) is, but rather do we FEEL normal or not. Some people might feel like total outsiders, freaks even, while others feel well-adjusted into their environment despite the differences they have with the people around them (love for blue cheese, always dressing in black or loving hentai).

If I approach the question from this angle, then yes, I feel pretty normal.

Edit: Just realized the way the question is phrased, it pretty much means what you yourself feel about your normalness. On the other hand I also noticed the word "original" used as an antinym to the word "normal" which is a bit strange.. I mean, to me, a person can be normal while being original. As in, somebody can be your average bus driver living in London and thus normal but have a very original web comic they publish on the internet. Or somebody can be a regular white person in their 40's but be an amazingly original chef. On the other hand, if we really examine the term 'original' most things that are called 'original' probably wouldn't be.

..God I have no life. :]

I think that the "normal" question is the concept of normality your country, state, etc has.

For example:

In Mexico is "normal":
Being a catholic, and being devote to Guadalupe Virgin.
Have a house, children, maybe a car, work for your children and family, and of course you must baptism - is that the word?- your children in the catholic church, and you must marry in that church...
If you are poor, you have the same religious stuff, but you should being grateful with the things God gave you, not wanting more- and that's why must children leave their studies in junior high school, and the pregnancy thing is pretty high here-.
MMM... and normally if you are middle class person you should want to study law, engineering, architecture, economics, medicine, and then you should get a job, get marry, etc.

Every sunday is family day, if you don't see your family that day, is almost sin.
MMM... ah... yeah... if you are agnostic, listen punk, are cinic, sarcastic, misanthrope, don't want a car, study history, and you will prefer to burn alive that being married in church, then you are "weird"

Speaking of Amish, I've been to Lancaster and paid 7 bucks to see an actual Amish house (which is super clos to a Target, what a contrast). The guide was telling us their history and stuff, and something came to my attention. Why are there millionaire Amish if they can't be frugal and stuff like that? If they don't (can't) use the money, why do they need huges amounts of it?

And yeah, I feel pretty normal because I don't need to insult people because I think I am smarter than they are.
