Excellent few ones, I'll give it a go.

Defense mechanisms are unconscious resources used by the ego to reduce conflict between the id and superego and thereby anxiety. For that reason they are more accurately referred to as ego defense mechanisms. They can thus be categorized as occurring due to the following scenarios:

When the id impulses are in conflict with each other;

When the id impulses conflict with superego values and beliefs;

When an external threat is posed to the ego.

2. T
