This causes many issues with people and society. There becomes an unneeded amount of people on the streets. This is an ethical problem because the people who choose to be on the streets could be off of the streets but they choose to be lazy and unmotivated although they shouldn’t be because they can relieve themselves of the predicament they are in. This is ethically wrong because people shouldn’t be homeless by choice. It’s not okay because it causes more money to be wasted towards people that shouldn’t be helped at all.
Imagine you're the interviewer and you interview someone who has arrived late and presented themselves in a very lazy manner; you'd immediately form the impression that this person is abnormal. Cultures do vary throughout different societies though, therefore there isn't one universal set of rules; this is known as 'cultural relativism'. What can be considered normal in one culture can be interpreted as highly abnormal in another. Consequently an individual could be labelled as mentally ill of 'abnormal'. This is a limitation of this definition of abnormality because It could mean people could misread another's behaviour as 'abnormal' when maybe that just follow another culture etc.
To look at the definition of abnormality in more detail it’s needed to look at the different definitions of abnormality. There have been four attempts to explain abnormality these are: Statistical Infrequency Deviation from social norms Failure to function adequately Deviation from ideal-mental health I will look at two of these definitions in more detail, to establish the strengths and weakness of these definitions. (psychology.about.com) Deviation from social norms: A social norm is the guidelines that society sets for acceptable behaviour. Behaviour that deviates from these norms is considered to be abnormal. In our society we have acceptable behaviours, values and beliefs.
“Abnormality is very difficult to define. It can be hard to decide where normal behaviour ends and abnormal behaviour begins.” Discuss 2 or more definitions of abnormality. The first one is deviation from social norms which means a person’s thinking or behaviour goes against what is expected and acceptable behaviour in the present social group. This may be by being unnecessarily rude to another to another who hasn’t wronged you or by making others feel threatened or uncomfortable. This also extends to the unwritten rules of everyday life, like to walk around with no shoes on at work/school, as this is expected of you but isn’t written in any rulebook.
A person may feel lonely, unhappy, and unaccepted by the general public. There are nine different kinds of disorders that have been identified by psychologists under the umbrella of personality and can be classified into three different groups, Clusters A, B, and C. Each personality is grouped by how each disorder causes the individual to behave and by their symptoms. Cluster A is where you would find the disorders that are unusual or bizarre and are made up of paranoid, schizoid, and schizotypal personality disorders. Cluster B is where all the disorders that cause dramatic, emotional and erratic behavior are classified. The disorders in Cluster B are anti-social, borderline, histrionic, and narcissistic personality disorders.
But it becomes wrong when you are selling your products at such a low price that you put all other companies out of business. When you are using this form of dumping, you put people out of work because their company can no longer afford to keep them on. Either way I don’t see any moral reasoning that would support dumping products overseas if it’s illegal. First you are breaking a law that has been setup to protect people. You are also intentionally causing harm to others, if you follow either definition.
These labels that are constantly put on us drive me insane. There is so much hidden in our family that non-members do not see. In addition to all of these stereotypes that are put on me and the others in my group, I do not like to show people that it bothers me, but these stereotypes have really given me a negative outlook on these people. The stereotypes that have been put on me have made me put stereotypes back on these other people. I now look at the outsiders as "city slickers" or I call them lazy and tell them that they have no discipline.
Institutional abuse – Individuals are mistreated due to poor practise of a company, this could include understaffing and neglect etc. Self-neglect - Where an individual ignores or pays less attention than necessary to their basic human needs for food, drink, warmth, sleep etc Neglect by others – This includes ignoring medical, physical, educational needs or denying access to things like food, drink and warmth.

First definition of abnormality is Deviation from social norms, meaning a behaviour which is considered anti-social or undesirable by a majority of society mmbers, and any society have social norms, behaviours that are acceptable within the group. An example of Deviation from social norms would be swearing, because it is seen as undesirable in most public or private situations such as at work or at the dinner table. However, making a judgement on deviance is often related to the context of the behaviour, and in many cases there is no clear line between what is an abnormal deviation and what is simply harmless eccentricy. For example, being rude is deviant, but it does not bring evidence of mental disturbence unless its excessive and therefore pathological. What this means is that social deviance on its owncannot offer a complete definition of abnormality because it is inevitably related to both context and degree.
It may also be foreshadowing that because there is not much light that for George and Lennie something bad is going to happen meaning that it is not a good place for them to be. We also see how badly kept this place is with 'littered cards' this means that the place is not very well kept and that the men that live in it don't really see it as their home instead they just see it as a place where they work and treat it with no real respect. Also with 'black cast iron stove' shows this place really is not looked after as black is a sign of danger and this adds to the foreshadowing that Steinbeck is creating. 'Rushing stars' may show that the dream for George and Lennie is getting even further away and that they may not achieve the dream as it going away from
