Normal Behavior In deciding what even constitutes “abnormal” behavior, it is interesting to note that the field did not begin with a conceptualization of what constitutes normal behavior, that is, there is little empirical basis for saying how a particular behavior deviates from a known norm, standard, or baseline (Adams & Cassidy, 1993). Several schemes for classifying normal behavior have been proposed (see Adams & Cassidy, 1993; Buss, 1966). For example, within the positive mental health movement, Jahoda (1958) listed six criteria for mental health and normality, including a balance of psychic forces, self-actualization, resistance to stress, autonomy, competence, and perception of reality.
