I would say "normal" is the majority. For instance, if the majority of people are poor, it is normal to be poor. In any case, I don't believe there is a "norm" at all. I suppose "normal" is really a subjective thing than what it should be (an objective thing).

Normal?
How about something like this:
- study your butt off till you're 20
- work your ass off till you're 40
- then, enjoy the rest of your life

To define being normal as objectively as possible, you would have to use mathematics. You get each topic and find the global mean average in the individual behavior or attitude within that topic. For example, what color do you like? If the highest percent of people in the world prefer blue, then liking blue falls under the most normal (average) category in terms of color preference.

Then someone who likes a different color isn't normal?

That doesn't fit, imo.

I didn't say they weren't normal. Their preference isn't statistically normal. That's the difficult part of saying if one person is normal. Just the way, you can say what someone did was stupid but not say that they are stupid for doing it. If you calculate every possible factor in a person's characteristics and weigh it against the global average; you can possibly say that they are abnormal or are a deviant of the global norm.

Then it'd be more of a generalization based on calculations and ever-fluctuating statistics? We'd lose track pretty quickly considering how often the human race reproduces. It'd take time.. and lots of it. Although, you can make studies throughout a duration of time, but then again the study of preference, specifically in the case of preference, would become a mere fashion within that specific timeframe.

EDIT: As far as human behavior goes, then yeah, I agree with you.
