Extant and not inferior


I believe that my repertoire of emotional responses is abnormal but extant and not inferior (at least on my good days; every now and then I feel inferior).

Normal is something that applies only to specific traits. For example, in adult height normal is about 5’1″ to about 6’1″. But normal is not necessarily good or bad. With regards to various situations, there are normal things. For example, in the United States it is normal to never smoke or to start smoking as a teenager or older; it is not normal to start smoking at age 4 years old.
