Abstract: The present study explored the decision making among adolescents in relation to their psychological well being, parenting style and peer pressure. The study was divided into two phases; in the first phase, the data was collected from a sample of 593 adolescents, randomly selected from various government and private schools of Chandigarh. The data was collected using four standardised tools, i.e., Making Decisions in Everyday Life (Mincemoyer, Perkins and Munyua, 2001, revalidated by the investigator and the supervisor according to the Indian conditions), Psychological Well-Being Scale (Sisodia and Choudhary, 2012), Scale of Parenting Style (Gafoor and Kurukkan, 2014) and Peer Pressure Scale-Revised (Singh and Saini, 2016). In the second phase, a sample of 48 adolescents amongst the above sample was further selected randomly. In this phase a semi-structured interview framed by the supervisor and the investigator was conducted, to get an in-depth understanding of the influence of the independent variables on the dependent variable. The results of the study revealed that decision making ability of adolescents is positively and significantly correlated to psychological well being and parenting style, while negatively correlated to the peer pressure. Further, the adolescents having a higher level of psychological well being, and parental responsiveness and control possess more decision making ability in comparison to their counterpart and vice-versa for peer pressure. The results of the semi-structured interview supported the obtained results. newline
