Examples of Reaction Formation?

Answer

A reaction formation is the tendency of a repressed wish or feeling to be expressed on the conscious level but in a contrasting form. Examples of reaction formation are treating someone that you dislike in an overly friendly manner in order to hide your real feelings, or being angry with someone but acting friendly and courteous towards them in order to hide the anger. Another reaction formation can occur when someone is aroused is pornography in secret but spends his public time criticizing pornography. Many heterosexual people who have strong feelings towards homosexuals may be trying to counteract their own deep-seated and unconscious homosexual feelings and desires.
