Storyboard Text

  • Rationalization
  • Hey, did you get that promotion and pay raise?
  • No but it's okay. The money wasn't worth the extra work. 
  • Hey, is mikey still sucking his thumb?
  • Regression
  • Ever since he watched the scary movie he has
  • Sublimation
  • Hey man, you seem pretty mad
  • Yeah when I get mad I come here to release anger
  • Definition: Rationalization is the cognitive distortion of "the facts" to make an event  or an impulse less threatening; it is done often enough on a fairly conscious level when we provide ourselves with excuses. Many people that have sensitive egos have an easy time making excuses so much so that they are no longer aware of it. Explanation- The guy on the right is making it seem as if he did not want the promotion when he clearly did.
  • Displacement
  • You and everyone else is obnoxious. 
  • Definition: A movement when one is faced with stress and when they're troubled or frightened, their behaviors tend to become more childish or primitive. Example- Since the stressful situation the child in reference  has turned to more childish ways to cope.
  • Represssion
  • No, I don't remember. 
  • Definition: Sublimation occurs when one manages to displace their emotions into a constructive rather than destructive activity. Example- The boxer on the right goes to the gym when he is mad to release anger in appropriate way.
  • Intellectualization
  • I don't have enough money to buy food for all my animals. I will need to take out a loan
  • Why don't you give  away some of your animals instead
  • Definition: Displacement is the redirection of an impulse(typically aggression) onto a powerless substitute target; the target being a person or object that is a symbolic substitute.
  • It's not my fault you had a bad day.  You just got home.
  • Definition: Repression is the unconscious mechanism employed by the ego to keep disturbing or threatening thoughts from becoming conscious. Thoughts that are often repressed are those that would result in feeling of guilt from the superego. Example- The guy at the top of the stairs forgot that he fell down the stairs because it was a traumatic experience growing up.
  • Do you remember  when you fell down the stair's. 
  • Definition: Intellectualization is when reasoning is used to block confrontation with an unconscious conflict and its associated emotional stress; where thinking is used to avoid feelings and involves removing one's self, emotionally, from a stressful event. Example- The guy instead of fixing the problem is trying to find other ways to temporarily fix the problem.
