When it comes to discerning the cultural norms, some are better at it than others, but it is impossible to judge who is better than whom without knowing the norms well enough oneself to measure others’ knowledge by them. Thus, the one doing the measuring must first be measured. A better way to do it might be to add together the impressions of many and average them together in some way – but this is what we already do to determine norms in the first place and some of us are bad at it. The process is completely subjective.
