Identify, if you can, a time when you used EACH of Freud’s ego defense mechanisms. If you cannot do so for every mechanism, identify when you have observed someone else using the mechanism. Discuss situations in which ego-defense mechanisms are helpful and situations in which they might be ultimately harmful.
Consider: Are defense mechanisms dependent on personality? Are the defense mechanisms you use most correlated to certain personality types? How could you design a study correlating defense mechanisms and the MBTI or Big Five?
Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research. Outside sources are recommended and APA style citations and references required. The initial response must be at least 500 words.
