    Peer pressure only affects kids and teens, but as they become adults they get to be more confident and less concerned about what people think of them, at least for me. So to answer your question, I did give in to peer pressure when I was a younger, but that mentality slowly faded and disappeared completely as I grew up and matured.

    The only voices I listen to are my family's and the one in my head. I'm not stubborn. I will listen to advice, but the final decision about anything is always my own.

    We are in a copycat society. People have always been this way. The problem is that the things being copied are so ridiculous. It's the blind leading the blind.

    There's so much of this stuff going on. Trends are a really good example of this. People all of a sudden start saying "YASSS" and "REAL TALK MY WCW/MCM" and things like that. Why do that? I guarantee that you weren't taught one word in Yiddish in your life time, and I don't find why it's to celebrate.

    I often like to be myself and portray my own vision in life instead of what the media wants me to be. I was never interested in following anyone's trend but I can understand the younger generation's perspective and where they are coming from, we are pretty much expose to the same music, same t.v. channels, same cultural standards in our society, I think most people feel the need to be apart of "what's new" to fit in, rather than feel neglected or feel a certain type of way because your not blended in with everyone else's social expectations.

    Social pressure is everywhere! I don't mean to be frank or seem ignorant but I personally feel that there are somethings in this world that cannot be possibly change, well maybe a little but social pressure, in my opinion would be something that exist in this life forever. Many people feel the need to "fit in" especially when they feel like they're different from everyone else. And then there are some people who have no desire to fit in, like me.

    I do pretty much what I want, but I'm willing to compromise if I'm with a friend.

    I think peer pressure affect everyone no matter how "independent" they claim to be. I try to think things through before i do them, and not do something just because everyone else is doing them, but I have succumbed to peer pressure, I recently got a snap chat because of it.

    One thing I've learned is that following the crowd will get you nowhere. Be yourself, and good things will happen

    I must admit that there are things I did when I was younger that I am not proud of. I tried to fit in because I had not realized my worth. It is a sad phase in life that most of us fall into before we realize who we are. It is true; things get easier as we get older to be our own person with no need to impress others.

    Everybody are under social pressure at one point of time in their life, many a times without them realizing it. I think it is not a very good way to think about anything and I do not encourage it. When I was young, I enjoyed doing what others are doing. I thought that was the way how life worked. As I grew older, I realised how wrong I was and decided to change myself for my own betterment.

    Peer pressure is common within young and old friendships. I don't do things when I believe they are going to turn out bad for me in the end. I tend to not fall into peer pressure and stay on my own road.

    If something looks fun, I'll do it, but I won't do something I don't enjoy just because it's cool looking.

    It took me a long time to come this realization.

    I am not a peer pressure person mainly because I do not hang with other people to fit in. I never had friends so it did not bother me. I just don't think I can social pressure I just cannot find the right people to socialize with.
