failure to function adequately is a good one to talk about because you could also mention Rosenhan and Seligmans additional criteria for failure to function, being a threat to others and yourself, unable to maintain interpersonal standards such as eye contact. You can compare it to deviation from social norms in evaluation because there is difficulty distinguishing between the two, cultural relativism, represents a threshold for help- hope this helps! But remember in 8/16 markers there is more weight on AO3 than A01

No problem! I wouldn’t recommend comparing all of them- just failure to function adequately and deviation from social norms because for example not having a job may be seen as failure to function adequately but may just be a deviation from social norm where someone has decided not to keep a job. So there’s a bit of difficulty distinguishing between the two which makes it a good evaluation point
