First of all, they don't. Teenagers are regular people. They do not believe everything their friends say. They argue about facts, gossip, games, etc. They do seem to have less resistance to peer pressure than most adults. If everyone in the room is reading and studying, the most likely thing the teenager will do is read or study. Likewise, the same can be true of some risky or unsafe behaviors, such as sexual practices, drinking, taking drugs, fighting, etc. Competition is probably just as likely as peer acquiescence especially among teen males.
It is important to remember that teenagers have common concerns and they seem to rally around these topics.
Because their brains are not yet fully switched on. That's not an insult to teenagers, we all are either teenagers or have been through that process.
Part of adolescence is to do with moving from the child's greedy, emotional thought processes to the more logical adult thought processes.

Far too many oldies haven't got away from the black & white, hormonal thought processes.
