Examination of the definition of Norma using:
1. Statistical Criteria, to define what “abnormal” behaviour is. What deviates from the main
(norm).
For Example: Behaviour Test (Intelligence Quotient (IQ))
IQ = Actual Age/Chronological Age
When IQ=100, this indicates that there is similiarity in between actual and chronological age, as
there is a match (Normal). In Statistics parameters, we’re talking about standard deviation from
the mean (norm). Approximately 2/3 of the population fall within 1-2 S.D. If you fall in the 1/3
parameter which is above or below the normal range, you are ABNORMAL.
(Mental Retardation)<70<[IQ= 100 (Normal)]<130 (Gifted)
IQ of 70 is labelled as mental retardation and IQ of 130 is disabilityof known as gifted. Abnormal
behaviour however for this,is not classified as a pathology. Most mental health professional says
it’s arbitrary. Giftedness is not designated as an illness, is a problem. How is that if one`s IQ falls
