I know what the dictionary definition is, but what is normal? Normal behaviour, normal in terms of life, relationships etc, because Im fairly convinced normal doesnt exist, normal is a word and definition that someone created to fit a group, not everyone, so why should someone that doesnt fit into the definition *Normal* be deemed otherwise?

Normal is a relative term, like big.

Here's a good definition what I just made up:

A Normal is a 90 degree line to a tangent of a circle, through the centre of a circle.
Now, if we take the circle, in this instance to be "life". The normal line is the longest line through the circle, as it is the diametre.
Any other lines parallel to this line running through the circle (not through the centre, otherwise it won't be parallel), are going to be shorter. Therefore, the longest line could represent a majority of people, and towards the edge of the circle are the most extreme cases, positive and negative respoectfully.

Now, you may think I am talking ****, and so do I.

Thankyou.

I would now like to confirm what I said earlier. And add that some are more freaks than others.

I think at one time it was approiate to say he/she isn't normal, as pretty much everyone followed the same sort of lifestyle. Now, however there is no 'normal' lifestyle everything is so diverse that 'normal' now becomes 'not normal' and vise versa.

Normal is people who have listened to the socialisation of their culture and have such accepted the norms and values that are inherent within it.

If everyone is unique - then we are all the same...

I know one thing though - I'm definately not normal! but then again maybe being normal is being different so then then everyone is normal... Normal is being unique, different there is no normal but then we are all normal...
