FREUDIAN DEFENSE MECHANISMS
By: Tony Zhu
Regression is the Freudian defense mechanism in which a person retreats back to a previous psycholosexual stage when facing anxiety, such as thumb sucking when nervous.
Reaction formation is when one purposefully elicits emotions opposite to what they feel when their true feelings may be socially unnacceptable, such as being overly nice when furious.
The displacement defense mechanism is when one transfers their built up aggression towards a being to a less threatening one, such as a man berrating a dog instead of his manager
Sublimation is the mechanism of using one's unacceptable feelings and impulses towards a socially valid motive, such as an overly angry man using his rage to work out.
Repression is the rare defense mechanism of conciously banishing or abandoning one's own harmful or hurtful thoughts of anxiety.
