Automatic Defense Mechanisms to Change
Chanitha De Silva, Member
What I think is that human beings are reluctant for change by nature. When there is a change taking place around themselves, they will either cope with that or else the automatic defense mechanism will trigger their moods to react in one of the following ways:
1. Aggressive reactions
2. Regressive reactions
3. Identification
4. Withdrawal
5. Repression
6. Autism
7. Rationalization
8. Projection
Therefore I believe that change management is merely connected with motivation of human beings to make them overcome such defense mechanisms, that would make them cope with the change....
