You’re Not Average Because Average Is a Myth

“The problem is that the line of averages is not ‘real’ in the sense that most people are not on it. It is an average of the total, but is not where most people actually are.”

So many people spend so much time comparing themselves to others and trying to assess if they are “normal,” or “average.”

But as Vanessa Van Edwards points out in this post, average is a myth. Most people don’t actually line up with the average by any measurement, so being an outlier actually IS normal.
