Post Reply What is "average"?...
Posted 1/5/17
Is average defined by the quantity, or by the common masses, OR even by society/social media...

For example, are you consider average because you can follow the same routine as everyone; work, school, sleep, eat...

Or are you consider average because the ability/limitation we can do?...


How do you guys define "average"?...

The answer is all three you listed, it just depends/leers more towards one particular definer based on what average you're trying to determine. There is no single thing that defines average, at least when you're not speaking strictly mathematically.

well i mean when you add everything together, and divide it by the total things...... but mathematically is about the only way an average would make sense.normalcy is an illusion, and i believe you refer more to social norms than towards numeric factors?

It is dependent on what is being measured. Same thing applies to humans. You are average by some measures and not average by others.

Not producing lower than expected, but always maintaining consistent results without going over.

Basically you're living within your means without much consideration for the future.

I like the above average lifestyle. Live within your means, but always getting better and working towards the future for a better life

Doing what the society and people in general expects you to is being average.

Average = (Φ16 + Φ50 + Φ84) / 3

I tend to use this for most every average...

If you mean average by person standards... there is no such thing. Everyone is different. There are no two people who think exactly the same. 1,000,000 different people divided by 1,000,000 is still one. Aka every person is unique.
