What does "What you really want to be normal?" mean in this paragraph? i have a paragraph as follows: "To allow other people’s opinion of you to affect how important you think you are may be normal, but normal does not equal good. Consider, for example, that it is not normal for you to gain many achievements, it is not normal for you to gain big achievements, and it is definitely not normal for you to gain many big achievements. What you really want to be normal?" Is there any difference between "big achievements" and "many big achievements" in this paragraph, because they are plural? And what does "What you really want to be normal?" mean. I rarely met this structure in English. thank you!

I think you can think of it this way... "it's rare to see many (regular-sized) pineapples in a supermarket, it's even rarer to see a big pineapple in a supermarket, not to mention seeing a lot of big pineapples in a supermarket all at the same time." "What you really want to be normal?" I think it's a typo. Here, "what" should be "why" instead.

Maybe it's a typo.
