Students are more influenced by their teachers than by their friends.
Being influenced in students, especially at young ages is one of the most significant issues in psychology. It has been asserted by some scholars, however, students are more affected by their tutors in comparison with their friends. Some scientists are adherent to the statement that students are more influenced by their peers by the contrary. I am of the same mind as the last theorists and this essay aims to investigate the reasons for holding this opinion. First of all, due to the prominence of spending time together and being influenced at a young age as a result, students cannot be influenced by their teachers because they visit each other for a short period during the day. Not only do students spend more time together during their classes, but they also are in touch even after school while they are sleeping in their homes or are roommates. For more illustration, while I was studying in college, I lived with two of my friends in a dorm. As everybody told us, we got analogous to each other in our behavior patterns or our style. This affair was logical since we had spent at least twelve hours a day together and we were in common numerous issues. Hence, it is apparent that students are not in close relationships with their professors, and owing to this matter, they are not able to hang out with or be affected by them. Second, I subscribe to the opinion that the relationship between students and teachers is not friendly most of the time and their communication, on the contrary, is respectful and strict. This statement is reasonable inasmuch as their age difference. In my country, at least, teachers are as elder as students’ parents. In this way, it could be imaginable that their relationships are full of limits and is restricted. For instance, an elementary student who is scared of her teacher since he is always serious for his career requires him to be like that, could not feel comfortable connecting with him. In contrast, her classmate who sat next to her is a better choice to speak about her concerns or the game which they both are in love with that. That means that age is a significant element in forging relationships and prevents children to affect from their teachers. In conclusion, I strongly advocate this allegation that students are influenced by their peers more than their teachers because of the reasons having been stated above. Spending time together and being at the same age are the two remarkable elements of being on effect by somebody and in connection with teachers, unfortunately, are not found.
