Abstract

According to our clinical experience, the defence mechanism of projection appears to be divided into a complete one (Freud) and an incomplete one. The patient who is able to completely project his inner anxiety into the outside world by unresisting acceptance of extraordinary manifestations, differs from the one representing a case of incomplete projection, inasmuch as such patients seek an explanation for their unfamiliar experiences and develop guilt feelings in connection with them.
