Storyboard Text

  • Projection
  • New Rules (continued): - No wearing the color green on Tuesdays - Dogs allowed... people with dog allergies not allowed - No kitchen appliances allowed after sundown 
  • I can't believe he's changing all the rules, he must really hate us workers!
  • Displacement
  • I can't believe I failed that test. I studied so hard for that.
  • Aliens are not real!
  • Sublimation
  • The blue in the hooves represents sadness... but the abundance of pink represents overcoming that sadness
  • art classes
  • Projection is believing that the feelings one has toward someone else are actually held by the other person and directed at oneself. For example, someone gets a new boss that changes all the rules. Instead of getting angry at the new boss, a worker accuses the boss of changing everything to mess with them on purpose, because they are angry at the worker.
  • Denial
  • I'm flying!
  • Displacement is reducing one's feelings toward another personal object that is less threatening than the real target. For example, a kid gets mad because he failed a test, so he gets his anger out by fighting with his sibling. 
  • Rationalization
  • Sublimation is when someone channels their frustration toward a different goal. For example, people can express negative emotions in a healthy way by making art. 
  • Repression
  • Denial is when people do not accept the ego-threatening truth. For example, a lady could deny the existence of witches, even if there was evidence supporting them. 
  • How dare you call Margret a witch
  • She's not a witch!
  • but...
  • Rationalization is when a person offers self-justification explanations in place of the real, more threatening unconscious reasons for their actions. For example, someone failing their classes drops their major and changes to a different one. They blame their failures on the idea that they weren't trying in their other classes, because they would have been happier in a different major; even though they were actually just struggling with their other classes. 
  • I just didn't like business, I'm going to do so much better now that I'm in a different major. 
  • Regression is when someone returns to an earlier, more comforting form of behavior. For example, after being scared by the sound of thunder, a kid reverts back to hugging a stuffed animal for comfort, even though they've said they outgrew them.
