Definition: In psychology, compliance refers to changing your behavior under the direction or request of someone else. Essentially, you do something because someone asks you to. It differs from obedience in that it does not involve following the orders of an authority figure. Examples of compliance include doing a favor for a friend, buying a product after listening to a salesman's marketing pitch, or purchasing an item you saw in a television commercial that featured your favorite celebrity.
