I know there's the Stockholm Syndrome from movies:
- a paradoxical psychological phenomenon where a victim develop empathy or feelings for their captors. Named after the bank robbery in Stockholm where the hostages became emotionally attached to their captors.
Now there's something in reverse effect call the Lima Syndrome:
- where abductors develop sympathy for their hostages, which was named after an incident in Lima of course and all the hostages were set free.
