Almost all of us feel, in private, that we're really quite odd, by which we mean: not like anyone else we know. But our picture of what is normal is in fact - very often - way out of line with what is actually true and widespread. Many thoughts, fears and desires that we might assume to be uniquely and disconcertingly strange - and that make us feel painfully ashamed - are in fact completely average.

The School of Life has designed this set of cards as a tool of self-assessment and reassurance. It asks us to compare ourselves with a range of statements, many of them dark, in order to find out just how weird (or not) we and our loved ones really are. It's a route to a fairer sense of what being truly normal might actually involve.

This set is available to and from our usual stockists.
