~@~Read, Learn, And Analyze~@~

"Pay Attention And READ More"

Yes I steal a lot of psychology material from other sources but only in the name of good. Besides to read this article below in it's entirety you'll need to go to and look up Defence Mechanisms.

"List of defense mechanisms

Sigmund Freud was the first person to develop the concept of defense mechanisms, however it was his daughter Anna Freud who clarified and conceptualized it. She has described various different defense mechanisms:

Identification. The unconscious modeling of one's self upon another person's behavior.

Inversion. Refocusing of aggression or emotions evoked from an external force onto one's self.

Substitution. When a person replaces one feeling or emotion for another. " *taken from

Unfortunately I cannot help anyone who doesn't understand this information to understand it. I have more training and experience when it comes to the human mind and human behavior than most people in the general population, but I did understand Defence Mechanisms before I ever considered becoming a psychotherapist.
Good luck,
