Society is manipulated all day, every day. The people around us affect how we act and we do that to others without knowing. When I was younger, I remember I was taught in school not to “fall into peer pressure.” Now as I’m a little bit more mature than my 8 year-old self, I think getting affected by peer pressure is inevitable because I think there are 3 types of peer pressure. 1. The “Bad Peer Pressure” is the most famous one which is seen as friends egging you on to drugs or something else illegal. 2. The “Good Peer Pressure” is sometimes overlooked by parents and teachers. Good peer pressure can be seen where one person says “thank you” and causes a chain reaction within the friends to create an over lapping sea of “thank you’s.” 3.

So, using thesaurus.com, I came across the word “perplexing” and ta-da, we have the PPP. Examples of PPP in life can be friends causing to say certain things you wouldn’t usually say like “omg yeshhhh” or “totes” or how about “hellur!” Or tends can fall under the PPP.
