Norm Breaking Even & Observations 2 Norm is defined as the rules of behavior followed in a society. it can be either formal or informal. It is the principle of a right action that binds the members of a group or society. norms helps to guide, control, and regulate the behavior of the group. Norms are categorized into standard norms, ideal norms, instrumental norms and constitutive norms. Norms can be folkways that are common rules to be followed in public, mores that are deeply held norms which are usually comes under law codes and taboos that are the most strongly held which brings revulsion to others when violated. Some of the norms that I see in everyday life could be when we travel in an elevator we always facing forward staring at the buttons. Men always do hold the doors for women in general, following a dress code in schools, wearing formal clothes in the professional meetings in the office, and standing in the queue till your turn comes. The norm that I will break here could be standing in a queue till my turn comes.
