Summary/Abstract: The mechanisms of defense are activated to block the process of building awareness of one's own self or of a thought or action which could impress the feeling of incapacity or anxiety. Those mechanisms form a system whose main aim is to support the mental balance. Clinical data evidence prove that those mechanisms do not appear separately doing the defensive process but are interconnected. In this study this psychoanalytical thesis in subject to empirical verification. The results achieved show that the defensive mechanisms form functional syntheses. The functional connecting and grouping of light mechanisms is unconscious and takes place at different levels. Each of the discovered function syntheses supports in a specific way the processing of devaluating data and the increase of the stability of defensive process.
