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: regression. repression. projection. displacement. reaction formation.

    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.

    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 .
