Different persons, different reactions to similar situtations

We are also unpersuaded by appellant's contention that it would have been well nigh impossible for Emelita to have the courage to snatch the mask off his face when she was being held at gunpoint, and considering that her husband did not even dare lift a finger. While it is true that people faced with danger usually become passive and submissive; it is equally true that there are some people who are emboldened in sudden or impulsive reaction to a frightening experience. Different persons have different reactions to similar situations. Man's behavior and reactions can never be stereotyped. [G.R. No. 88043. December 9, 1996]
