While Dr. Mitchell was going through a painful divorce, she tended to create unnecessarily difficult exams and gave students low grades. A psychoanalyst would be most likely to view the professor's treatment of students as an example of:
At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga.
Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus.
Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.
Regression is where we mentally go backward, to an earlier age.
One example would be where we start behaving like little children,
even though we are adults.

oh ok yeahh i remember that now, is it displacement? where she is displaceing her feelings through making the tests harder and giving out lower grades?
Yeah it is displacement.
Displacement is where we take out our anger and frustrations on people, or objects, that are not threatening to us.
Here's a scenario:
You have a bad day at school,
because your teacher gave you an unfair grade for an assignment.
You're angry, frustrated.
But you can't take it out on your teacher.
Because you might get suspended.
So, instead, you go home and you kick your dog.
That is displacement .
