  • FREUDIAN DEFENSE MECHANISMS
  • REGRESSION
  • REACTION FORMATION
  • By: Tony Zhu
  • DISPLACEMENT
  • 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.
  • SUBLIMATION
  • 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.
  • REPRESSION
  • 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.
