Status competition is the contest or rivalry between two or more individuals over the pursuit of influence, deference, attention, and associated resources. Peer relationships are associations between two or more individuals that may vary in closeness and duration and which reflect and sometimes lead to the creation of friendships, partnerships, allegiances, and group membership.
