Projection is a notion deeply entrenched in psychoanalytic theory that plays an essential role in understanding the human mind and behavior. The concept of projection as a defensive mechanism was proposed by Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. The ego uses this defensive mechanism to protect itself from worry and discomfort by projecting one's own negative ideas, feelings, or impulses onto others. We can obtain significant insights into the intricacies of human behavior by investigating the psychoanalytic notion of projection.
