Question and answer
Freud suggested that defense mechanisms reduce anxiety by unconsciously distorting reality. Discuss when defense mechanisms are healthy and when they are unhealthy. State whether you agree or disagree with Freud that they are always unconscious.
In life, sometimes defense mechanisms are healthy because they reduce anxiety, other times they are unhealthy because the existence of a defense mechanism prevent us from dealing with reality. [ We exhibit defense mechanism when our beliefs and behaviors are incongruent with one another. I don't agree with Freud. ]
