Learned Helplessness

It is a mental surrender towards the unfavourable or stressful situations that happen repeatedly. A person who has ‘learned’ to be helpless observes the bad event or circumstance and feels that there is nothing that can be done.

It is found in both humans and animals and was discovered in 1967 in a bizarre psychological experiment using electric shocks on dogs.
