  • 18. <ul><li>Denial; an outright refusal or inability to accept some aspect of reality that is troubling. For example: &amp;quot;this thing has not happened&amp;quot; when it actually has. </li></ul><ul><li>Splitting; a person cannot stand the thought that someone might have both good and bad aspects, so they polarize their view of that person as someone who is &amp;quot;all good&amp;quot; or &amp;quot;all bad&amp;quot;. Any evidence to the contrary is ignored. </li></ul>
  • 19. <ul><li>Projection; a person&apos;s thought or emotion about another person, place or thing is too troubling to admit, and so, that thought or emotion is attributed to originate from that other person, place or thing. For example: &amp;quot;He hates me&amp;quot;, when it is actually the speaker who hates. A variation on the theme of Projection is known as &amp;quot;Externalization&amp;quot;. In Externalization, you blame others for your problems rather than owning up to any role you may play in causing them. </li></ul>
  • 20. <ul><li>Passive-aggression; A thought or feeling is not acceptable enough to a person to be allowed direct expression. Instead, that person behaves in an indirect manner that expresses the thought or emotion. For example: Failing to wash your hands before cooking when you normally would, and happen to be cooking for someone you don&apos;t like. </li></ul>
  • 21. <ul><li>Acting out; an inability to be thoughtful about an impulse. The impulse is expressed directly without any reflection or consideration as to whether it is a good idea to do so </li></ul>
