Psychologists view well-adjusted behavior as conformity—the ability to navigate relationships and events within the framework of societal rules and regulations without undue distress. But what defines “normal?” Society’s expectations are sometimes controversial, arbitrary, or equivocal. As a result, people who have problems coping with social conformity choose between degrees of nonconformity, or hiding under what George Serban calls a “mask of normalcy.”
