About This Quiz

When you think of the word "normal," what does it even mean? What about the things you do every day, are they normal? Do you get up in the morning and go about your day, just like everyone else does? Maybe you feel that you are normal, or perhaps you feel like you are living the sort of life that is different than pretty much everyone else, but who really knows? 

Your perception of what normal is might be different than someone else's. Just about everyone has habits and a daily routine that they follow once that alarm clock goes off. Wait, you use an alarm clock, right? Normal people do!

And by the way, don't worry about whether you are normal or whether you aren't. All of us are different, some of us just like to show it more than others do. To be normal really just means that you do the same sort of things that others do around you, so what is normal in your country, might be totally weird someplace else. 

So let your freak flag fly! Or don't, and just be normal. Either way, take this quiz to find out where you stand on the normal scale.
