...Defense Mechanisms Sigmund Freud put forward defense mechanisms used by the ego in defense against anxiety. One of these defense mechanisms is repression. According to Freud, whenever undesirable id impulses threaten the ego, it represses those impulses in order to protect itself (Feist & Feist, 35). This is actually pushing the threatening feelings into the unconscious. This repression is usually perpetuated for a lifetime. In an article written by Emily Gould in the New York Times (2008), the author talks about her life as a blogger and how she got addicted to online...

Moreover, it is an understanding that Freud’s psychoanalytic theory will be very helpful in identifying and analyzing different mechanisms.

When faced with an unforeseen force, humans tend to protect themselves in a manner to suggest they are coping with the situation. Sigmund Freud called them defense mechanisms that assist in coping with stress from the external environment. In one of his defense mechanism theories, Freud suggested that individuals often deny they are faced with problems in their everyday life (Weiten 179). He referred to this as denial, which many people opt for when in situations that may be stressful. This paper will examine denial as a defense mechanism, and an example... . ...
