1.There are many abnormalities that can be considered as desireable such as having a high IQ. Similarly, there are some abnormalities that are common but are less desirable such as depression. Therefore, using statistical infrequency to define abnormality means we are unable to distinguish between desirable and undesirable behaviours.

2. Statistical infrequency is sometimes appropriate to defien abnormality. For example, intellectual disability is defiens in terms of the normal distribution using the concept of standard deviation to establish a cut off point for abnormality. IQ more than more than 2 standard deviations from the mean is judges as havng a mental disorder.
