Stockholm Syndrome - An amazing psychology !!!

Imagine you are being kidnapped by an unknown person !!! After 3 days of hostage, you develop a soft corner towards him and fight against the entire world - for an unknown person, who kidnapped you !!! It's not a movie !!! Its reality !!! Here are few must know details about Stockholm Syndrome !!!


A robbery took place at Kreditbanken bank situated at Stockholm - Sweden in 1973 !!! Two robbers held four employees as hostages !!! They were sharing the vault for duration of THREE days (Aug 25-28) !!! In this while, there developed an emotional bondage between hostages and robbers !!! Hostages also experienced hardships during these days !!! But as a matter of fact, these hostages defended the robbers after the ordeal !!!


Fully comprehending Stockholm syndrome requires the understanding of the process that led to the development !!! Most important, this condition does not result from a conscious decision or a rational choice to be a friend of a captor !!! Everyone of us have Ego (described as Personality Core) !!! In hostage situation, healthy ego seeks for achieving survival !!! In many situations, Captives will be stripped of from nearly all kind of independence !!! Even then hostages are attracted by them !!!


  • Hostages who develop Stockholm syndrome often view the perpetrator as giving life by simply not taking it. In this sense, the captor becomes the person in control of the captive’s basic needs for survival and the victim’s life itself.
  • The hostage endures isolation from other people and has only the captor’s perspective available. Perpetrators routinely keep information about the outside world’s response to their actions from captives to keep them totally dependent.
  • The hostage taker threatens to kill the victim and gives the perception of having the capability to do so. The captive judges it safer to align with the perpetrator, endure the hardship of captivity, and comply with the captor than to resist and face death.
  • The captive sees the perpetrator as showing some degree of kindness. Kindness serves as the cornerstone of Stockholm syndrome; the condition will not develop unless the captor exhibits it in some form toward the hostage. However, captives often misinterpret a lack of abuse as kindness and may develop feelings of appreciation for this perceived benevolence. If the captor is purely evil and abusive, the hostage will respond with hatred. But, if perpetrators show some kindness, victims will submerge the anger they feel in response to the terror and concentrate on the captors’ “good side” to protect themselves.
  • Statistics and study says 27% of World people are prone to Stockholm Syndrome !!!
  • Even though, studies about Stockholm syndrome has not be done in large scale (in India) its believed that more percentage of Indians will be having this syndrome - because of our emotional nature !!!
  • Many Indian / Foreign movies have used this syndrome to its core !!!
  • International Court of Justice is located at HOLLAND !!!
  • South Korea got Independence on 15th August !!!
  • One could experience least decibel of sound in Desert !!!
