What's abnormal psychology? In other words, how would you define abnormal behaviour?

Abnormality is a controversial issue because it is contingent on a number of influences that include culture, history, geography, societal norms, intrapersonal and interpersonal factors. The list could go on. What may be acceptable in one culture, may be bizarre to another culture. What was ritual and normal to ancestral generations may seem foolish to present day civilization. Different geographical locations bring about certain behaviours and customs. Therefore what I may deem normal may be different to what you deem normal. It means we keep an open mind before rendering absolute judgments about what is normal or abnormal.
