Definitely peer pressure is harmful. It keeps one from doing the right thing, because the right thing is often not the most popular. It keeps one from becoming an individual with views and opinions that differ from society, thus killing diversity and individuality. To conform the only choice for so many too weak to stand alone.

Most of the time, yes, but suppose it depends on what the person is being pressured into... pressured into getting better grades, not so bad... pressured into doing drugs, bad.

Its very bad. It diminishes that prominent choice the person may have wanted to take. It allows others to practically control the decisions of a person. You don't really press people to do good things and usually peer pressure gives off a negative connotation. You can encourage or prefer someone to make a good decision but peer pressure is used to hopefully control the decisions one person makes.

Thomas Paine envisioned an independent, critical thinking and confident individual in The Rights of Man. I tend to agree with him that we must move away from the primitive herd animal mentality and feel free to fearlessly express ourselves in a group that can or may impose pressure on any free thinking individual.

Peer pressure CAN be beneficial. For an example: say your too scared to do something that can achieve all of your goals in life, like auditioning for something, you decide not to do it, but then your friend pressures you leaving you no choice. You then achieve what ever you were doing, and that was because of the peer pressure. I know, peer pressure is sometimes involving drugs, but my motto is: Choose your friends wisely.

Peer pressure is harmful in some ways but beneficial in others. A few examples are people stop smoking under peer pressure and/or they will stop taking drugs drinking, alcohol, etc.
