Is this behaviour due to young people’s tendency towards deep insecurity; or the human condition of wanting what you are not; or a combination of both?
The study didn’t reflect why kids need to push the boundaries when with peers. My theory is that it COULD be they are terribly insecure and want to appear strong before their peers. Or perhaps they want so badly to be like the other kids; maybe they think the other guys have”it” — something that they themselves lack.
Also, in teens, hormone levels are raging; it takes little for them to get jumpy or excited. This is more likely where the pack mentality would take over.

The first mental health problem examined was posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an extremely debilitating disorder occurring after a highly disturbing traumatic event, such as military combat or violent crime. Almost one-third (31%) of all rape victims developed PTSD sometime during their lifetime; and more than one in ten rape victims (11%) still has PTSD today.
Rape victims were 6.2 times more likely to develop PTSD than women who had never been victims of crime (31% vs 5%).
Rape victims were 5.5 times more likely to have current PTSD than those who had never been victims of crime (11% Vs 2%).

So, to answer your question, joining a gang changed my life as a whole by ending it - with the chance to live only to feel it.

Would you think gang life is fun

I found this very interesting and think the idea of mob mentality is very true-especially at Penn state. A riot was started and the streets destroyed a few years ago after a few people threw some stuff off their balcony and everyone decided to do the same, eventually escalating. Something similar to the "herd mentality" is the "bystander effect."The bystander effect is the somewhat controversial name given to a social psychological phenomenon in cases where individuals do not offer help in an emergency situation when other people are present. The probability of help has in the past been thought to be inversely proportional to the number of bystanders. In other words, the greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that any one of them will help.
I found this video illustrating this.
