The attacker can have different motives behind an attack. If the attacker attacks you to get something valuable that you have, he might stop if he gets that. Or, he might still attack you and hurt you pretty bad even after getting what he wants.
So you cannot say for sure whether you should give what the attacker wants or not. Maybe the attacker has a gun or knife, he holds that. You just came out from the ATM booth. The attacker knows that you just withdrew money. That's what he is after. You are in an awkward position, and the attacker might go away after getting your money.
Your life is more valuable than anything. You can earn more money if you are alive. So what you think would be the best, you make a decision based on that.
Sometimes giving money or what you have will not work, the attacker is going to hurt you anyway. You need to decide what you would do and when. Timing is also very important.
Understanding the psychological aspects can help you a lot to deal with a situation like that. The attacker asks you for your money, you can attack him right away. Or, observing the situation, you just give what wants. As soon as the attacker grabs what you give, that's the moment to make your move.
For example, the attacker has a knife in one hand. When you give your wallet or purse to the attacker, he will grab that on his other hand. So you see that he might not attack you with that hand that holds your wallet. You can use that moment to make your move in order to defend yourself.
If you are able to use the moment when that attacker is distracted or you make him distracted, you can make your move effectively with a view to protecting yourself.
So what do you think about this? Should you give what the attacker wants? Please feel free to leave your comments below. Thank you so much for reading this post.
