to be surprised/startled/stunned into (doing) something
could I ask you all what kind of meaning the expressions in the title convey exactly? Here are some example sentences:
"Amazing how a bird-of-prey was surprised into loosening its grip!"
"A spirited, ‘Good morning, Madam!’ greets me when I open the door, grouchy at having been startled into waking up, eyelids still heavy with sleep, hair all disheveled."
"For a moment, one could be stunned into thinking Donald J. Trump was now behaving as if he really wanted to be seen as a candidate with both presidential ambitions and presidential gravitas."
Maybe, those particular expressions could be rephrased as : "to be abruptly brought to do something because of a sudden shock"?
Thank you for your attention!
