Don’t take it personal! It was just an Ego Defense Mechanism

Take a closer listen…

Emotions run high during times of stress, unfortunately, not everyone has good communication skills. It is important to understand why those around you may be dealing with stressors differently than you.

Take a look at the different Ego Defense mechanisms you or others may be employing to deal with current events.


1. DENIAL: The refusal to accept reality or fact.

Example: People refusing to isolate post travel.

2. REPRESSION: blocking unacceptable thoughts, feelings or impulses.

Example: Temporarily stepping away from all social media accounts.

3. PROJECTION: Putting undesired thoughts, feelings, or impulses onto someone else.


4. DISPLACEMENT: Taking your feelings or impulses about one person and putting them on another person or object.

Example: Having a fight with your friend when you’re frustrated by an unrelated matter.

5. REACTION FORMATION: A situation where a person saw their true feelings or thoughts to be unacceptable and reacts by taking the opposite stance.


6. RATIONALIZATION: Changing your view in the face of a new reality.

Example: Changing your views as we learn more details about COVID-19. Last week you were not practicing social distancing, this week you are.

7. SUBLIMATION: Channeling unacceptable impulses into acceptable ones.

Example: Jogging to burn off negative energy.

8. REGRESSION: Reversing to an early stage of development in the face of unacceptable thoughts, impulses, or circumstances.


9. INTROJECTION: This happens when a person takes on the ideas or voices of other people .

10. IDENTIFICATION: This occurs when a person changes facets of their personality to be more like others.

11. COMPENSATION: This occurs when people overachieve in one area to make up for failure in another.


Ego defense mechanisms at work.

These sometimes-ugly reactions can appear at work. The thing to remember is that ego defense mechanisms are unconscious ways of dealing with stress, so when you recognize them in others, don’t take it personal! Instead, show them you understand their fear and your relationship will grow.

How do I decide?

Consider this before investing in a beauty industry career. Despite what service attracts you the most, your success in the skills you choose will be self-directed. To clarify, there is more than mastering a skill to reap the benefits of a beauty career.

3 reasons why you want a beauty career.

The beauty about a beauty careers is that they are all boundary-less.

What is a boundaryless career❓

Allan Bird, Professor of Global Business, Northeastern University, defines it as a career path in which individuals must engineer their work lives on their own.

According to Bird, there are 3 principles to the Boundaryless Career:

1. The Boundaryless Career is self-directed.

The beauty industry is not for everyone. It takes more than providing a good service to succeed in this industry. You must also have a sense of self-direction, self-motivation, and of course, an entrepreneurial spirit! For example, creating professional accounts on social media platforms will help you reach new clients.

2. The Boundaryless Career is ill-structured.

Progress, success, and advancement comes from learning and mastering technical skills, meeting new people, and collaborating with new groups. Beauty careers can be very exciting if you do it right!

Above all, having great people skills is important. You don’t have to possess an outgoing personality, but because you direct your own career, you must be personable with the people you meet throughout your career.

Moreover, there is a very attractive flexibility to the beauty industry. Some employers offer 9-5 hours, however, many employers offer flexibility on work schedules due to evening and weekend work. This outside-the-box scheduling allows you more control of time.

3. The Boundaryless Career has psychological benefits and costs.

Some psychological benefits are creativity and self-expression. Beauty careers allow you to express yourself in ways you wouldn’t dream of in conventional careers! Exploring new techniques to bring your ideas to life in your services are ways to attain new levels of success in the beauty industry.

Self expression is an excellent way to promote yourself as a service provider. After all, your presentation speaks for your work.

Other psychological benefits

In addition, you can gain even greater control by working on commission. In this arrangement, you are better able to influence your income and schedule- a psychological benefit that comes from the independence and freedom a career in the beauty industry provides.


As you can see, Alberta’s beauty industry offers exciting beauty careers for those who possess the right qualities!
