Actually I've only read up to Jeff's 2011 but I get your point.
I'd explain it to the interviewer like we were both 5:
When you are dating someone in hot demand, you have to be around her all the time, like putting you name all over her to keep away jerks in the bar.
Then you get married - the relationship established. You no longer need to be around 24x7. In fact you may crave a bit of alone time. That's what we call Normalization. So tell me again please the part about 4-week paid vacation in the compensation package...

If you were to malign red-blooded men who are simply acting upon our most natural of instincts as 'jerks' at interview, well I hope your tech skills are top-notch, if not you can expect a 'No thanks' email via the recruiter from me.
If someone were to ask me what normalization is during a job interview, that would be one of the mental check-boxes that I'd check of for reasons why I might want to work at that company. 😀 Like most folks, I couldn't give you a precise example of every form of normalization but I would point them to a great example of how not to do it.
After they get done explaining that many books could be named the same and that the ISBN is king, ask yourself where in the world is the ISBN after that explanation.
Change is inevitable... Change for the better is not.
