Defense mechanisms


An example of the defense mechanism “undoing” is:

A. Forgetting
B. Counting
C. Rituals
D. Blocking of external events


The correct answer is “B” – Counting. The defense mechanism of undoing refers to engaging in
some type of repetitive ritual in an effort to reverse an action previously taken. Counting is often
used in this way. Although counting is a ritual (answer C), counting is the more correct answer to
this question because it is a specific ritual that relates to the defense mechanism of undoing.
