Who determines what is "normality"? (orig. posted to main article by User:VinnyCee)

Can't we just assume that most people will understand what the word means? violet/riga (t) 7 July 2005 11:16 (UTC)
It's not a dictionary, sure, but the concept of "normality" in various contexts is most certainly encyclopedic information. The one from the disambig page that probably most likely applies here is the one to Assimilation (sociology). I've changed the article to link to that. Kurt Weber 7 July 2005 18:09 (UTC)

The statement, in an encyclopedia, that moderation is characteristic for the Swedish national psyche is a bit far fetched. I have met enough Swedes who were all but moderate, for example in their drinking habits once they leave the territory of their homeland. You could go on and say that brutality is a characteristic of the German psyche, but as I said, there are about as many non-brutal Germans around as non-moderate Swedes, may be even more. The question is: shouldn't we better refrain from using generalizations of this nature, as a role? Hoppelpoppel (talk) 12:44, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
