Normality of the Psych
Normality is a central issue in psychiatry. It is defined in psychiatry as easy as the absence of signs and symptoms. That is very practical. Yet in psychology normality is not that easily defined. Some psychoanalysts seem to define normality as being ideal or living in Utopia. Freud had put a good definition by saying normality is the ability to love and to work. Normality can be seen from the perspective of how the majority of a given society feel and behave regarding the minority as abnormal.
