I've noticed in the people around me these defense mechanisms. Denial, Identification, Regression, Intellectualization, Sublimation, and
Displacement.The above is what i have answered for the following question.what defense mechanisms have you noticed in the people around you? The next question I am stuck on.
What do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of these defense mechanisms?
An advantage is that a defense mechanism helps prevent us from feeling very hurt. After a death or divorce, many of these mechanism are experienced. The disadvantage is that if these defense mechanisms persist too long, the person loses contact with reality and doesn't meet the challenge of going on alone.
