Pursuit of Happiness
We all have dreams. We all have aspirations. While our goals and dreams differ, we as a species, are united by our pursuit of happiness. At one time or another, have you not thought, “I just want to be happy. I don’t want anything else.” Have you wondered why that thought occurs? How to actually be happy?
Is deviance a result of teenage “warmblood” or is it a result of peer conformity?
Over the years, researchers have been very interested in understanding acts of deviance among the emerging adults of our world.

Ironically enough, these acts of deviance can result from conformity to standards set by their peers. There are multiple causal associations to aggression, some of which all of us have faced at some point. This paper elaborates on the involvement of peer pressure on adolescents’ violent behavior.
