1) Actions taken in response to fear or low self esteem.

Respect is used in situations where a person wants others (or sometimes themself) to believe they have a high opinion of someone.

People respect their loved ones as people they have strong feelings for could use their feelings to hurt them. People respect those with authority over them as they are afraid of that authority being used against them.

To respect is one way of defining the feelings and behaviour caused by the pecking order in society: People respect their betters as they dont want to admit their own failings or are afraid that if they express their dislike for those better than them it would be seen as a challenge.

2) An attempt to gain the favor of others by showing empathy or understanding of other peoples views and feelings - commonly used in arguments to portray a superior knowledge of the issue in question.
1) I respect my girl (cos I'm scared she'll leave me)

I respect myself (It's better than saying I hate myself)

Give me some respect (Fear what I can do to you)

2) I respect your opinion (But mines still right)

The admiration of another man who displays qualities above the average man

Respect should not be given to a fuckin bitch teacher who has nothing but the fear of pussy high school kids to stop lying about respecting the bitch and actually tell her the value of her life i.e 0$

Unlike the man a couple definitions above people don't respect you they understand you and also gangsters have more balls then u and should be respected even if they r violent because they come from nothing and are something while u came from average and are average

Respect should be given to tony montana because you mother fuckers don't go into violence not because of morals but because you have no balls and you pussys would have killed the child in fear of your own lives
Wow you are a teacher Mohammed akmid sassan bouillabaisse ouja booka I must have great respect for because just look what you've done with your life got married had a child oh wait that's like 99% of the population so I do not respect you I understand you
