I was listening to music song of shahin Najafi:

enter image description here

which was bitter joking the Idealization mechanism.

So I thought about if we reverse the Freud defense mechanisms, for example Idealization, with empowered by its above level mechanism (for example, joking here), this change in the forward mechanisms could be done with other levels like projections?

What would happen if we use joking as height levels to reverse others lower levels, could it making that mechanism (like joking) to lower level?

Thanks for your attention.

    $\begingroup$ I don't get the question /hypothesis, or the relation to the song. Could you include references to the understanding of Freud you mention here instead? $\endgroup$ – Steven Jeuris Jan 15 at 8:58
