Narcissistic defense mechanism


Narcissistic defense mechanism


Narcissistic defense mechanism consists of:

Denial Defense Mechanism

→ Refusal to accept the reality, the person continues to behave as if nothing has happened

→ Ex – Mother refused to accept that her son is died in an accident and insists he will come for dinner

Projecting Defense Mechanism

→ Projecting own unacceptable feeling about others onto others

→ Ex – Husband with an unacceptable wish of indulging in infidelity accuses his wife of infidelity

→ This defense mechanism is responsible for development of delusions and hallucinations
