Id- party party partyEgo- mediateDefense Mechanisms: start from this slideRepressionFirst line of defense, pushing out of conscious awareness to unconsciousWhen someone is threatening our ego, making us anxious, making us afraid; we just pushit out of our conscious awareness into the unconscious.Car accident example: where you killed someone and you would repress it and try toforget itAccording to Freud you can’t repress foreverDisplacementYou transfer, the thing that’s causing anxiety to something else, you displace it.Example: you at mad about the test for psych but you can’t take it out on the teacher soyou take it out on your roommateIsn’t only with anger but love too (infatuation with an unattainable person so date theirsister)Transfer the thing that’s causing you anxiety to something elseExample: mad at boss > yell at brother at homeReaction FormationA reversal; you do the opposite of what is called for by your threatening feelings to youjust simply reverse those feelingsExample of fear of heights: with this fear, they decide to be a pilotEngage in the opposite thing that you would be called upon given your fearAnother example: is picking a fight with a person you see all the timeAttraction turns to distasteFear turns to engagementRationalizationWhen you rationalize something, you explain it a wayExample of the fox who wanted grapes and couldn’t get them so he goes the grapes wereprobably sourProjectionYou take your unacceptable thoughts and feelings, and put them on someone else.With projection, I love you becomes you love me and I hate you becomes you hate meExample: you have a fight with your roommate and you can say “ i like them but theycan’t stand meDifference is that they put your emotions on that person and say they feel those emotionsExample: i hate you turns to you hate me
RegressionYou go back to an earlier time in development where things were safer and morecomfortableExample: a 8 year old kid’s grandmother dies and they start baby talking againDenialJust didn’t happenRefusal to accept realityExample: a married couple and a person goes I saw your husband really close withsomeone and you go and say that his cousin and they are closeSublimationWith sublimations, things that are threatening or anxiety producing are channeled intosocially, culturally, acceptable areas.For Freud, our art, music, cooking, writing, etc.When things are anxiety producing, we channel them into creative expressionStages of Psychosexual Development:Personality develops over a series of stages in early childhood.
