Stockholm Syndrome? Jan. 31st, 2013 @ 08:57 PM Reply

What's so bad about Stockholm syndrome? Perhaps people subject themselves to various forms of emotional, verbal, and physical abuse, but if they don't mind, does it really matter?

Read the book "Hostage Terrorist, Terrorist Hostage: A Study in Duality."

Everything you need to know is in there.

I highly doubt that they "don't mind".
It's more of a way of coping with something extremely traumatic.

Because it tends to make some people do the evil bidding of their captors.

It's a matter of the human mind coping with something it wouldn't otherwise be able to handle.
Emotional/Psychological stress can be as damaging to the body as physical damage.

So, once the human mind reaches a breaking point, it will either break - and you'll see a nervous breakdown, or Stockholm Syndrome.

Well let's look at Amanda Young from Saw. Who's pretty much the most well known Stockholm Syndrome sufferer in fiction.
She woke up to a trap that nearly killed her. Became possibly the next Jigsaw, except she failed. She had a test from the original Jigsaw. It was to see if she could keep Lynn alive and to stop murdering people in general. By failing this test she died.

Basically if she died in the reverse bear trap. She wouldn't have developed Stockholm Syndrome and her victims would have lived.

I prefer to learn without the intense amount of pain.....

Give me pleasure, and I'll learn more comfortably.


My logic has a tendency of getting me getting stuck in the middle.

Nothing at all. It simplifies the hostage holding process for both victims and criminals.

Also a great title for the term...
