Strategic Survival.

Why was Freddie such a giant on stage and insecure and shy off it?

Mrs. Jer Bulsara said in an interview, “I cried when we left Freddie, but he just mingled with the other boys. He was quite happy and saw it as an adventure as some of our friends’ children had gone there.” Little Farrokh said goodbye to her when he was going to his new school in India and told her not to worry, he would be fine and hopped off with his new friends. Whether Freddie pretended to be happy to reassure his mother, we will never know.

Psychotherapy instructor and historian of psychology Nick Duffell warns in his book “The Making of Them: The British Attitude to Children and the Boarding School System” that sending an 8-year-old to boarding school will leave lifelong scars.

About Freddie, Duffel said in an interview:

“Strict upbringing, loneliness and distance from parents had a great impact on Freddie’s personality. His parents had no choice, there were no quality educational institutions for children at that time in Zanzibar. But, children need to be raised in the company of people who love them. Teachers, no matter how good, can’t replace that love. Kids that age don’t have the emotional intelligence or maturity to deal with this feeling of loss. Freddie developed what I call “survival strategic” personality. On the outside, he was competent and confident, but on the inside he was private and insecure. For many, insecurity affects the rest of their lives.”

This analysis explains a lot about Freddie’s personality.
