Normalization: The Signs

Characteristics, or signs, of Normalized Children: 
  1. Love of work, love of activity
  2. Concentration on an activity
  3. Self-discipline
  4. Sociability or joyful work

All four characteristics must be present for us to say that a normalized type common to the whole of mankind is appearing—no matter how brief the appearance of the characteristics. The process is usually invisible to us because the process of normalization is hidden by characteristics not proper to the child. (The Absorbent Mind, p. 202)
