NORMALITY

a widely postulated idea which is similar in comparison to cognitive health. Even though there aren't any absolutes and there is significant social range, some maneuverable psychological and activity-based standards can be recommended: freedom from incapacitating internal conflicts- (i) the ability to think and behave in a fashioned and acceptable result-oriented way- (ii) the ability to deal with the regular demands and problems that occur in life- (iii) freedom from severe emotional distress, like anxiety, despondency, and continual emotional disuprtions- and (iv) a lack of obvious or well-defined symptoms of mental dysfunction, like obsessions, phobias, disorientation and confused states.

NORMALITY: "It didn't take long for the staff to conclude that there was no presence of normality in the patient."
