Decision Making among Adolescents in relation to Peer Pressure
The present study aimed to study the relationship of Decision Making with Peer pressure amongst the adolescents. Pearson Product moment correlational coefficient was calculated to study the relationship between the two variables. t-test was used to check the difference in the mean scores of decision making at low and high peer pressure. Data was collected with two standardized tools. The results concluded that the Decision Making is negatively correlated to Peer Pressure, i.e. as the Peer Pressure in adolescents’ increases, their Decision Making ability decreases. And as per the results of the t-test, there exists a significant difference in the values of Decision Making at low and high Peer Pressure, i.e. the adolescents who have more Peer pressure have lower Decision Making ability as compared to the adolescents with low Peer Pressure.
