人类误判心理(2)

作者:查理·芒格

My second factor is simple psychological denial.

第二条:单纯的心理学上的「否定」

This first really hit me between the eyes when a friend of our family had a super-athlete, super-student son who flew off a carrier in the north Atlantic and never came back, and his mother, who was a very sane woman, just never believed that he was dead. And, of course, if you turn on the television, you’ll find the mothers of the most obvious criminals that man could ever diagnose, and they all think their sons are innocent. That’s simple psychological denial. The reality is too painful to bear, so you just distort it until it’s bearable. We all do that to some extent, and it’s a common psychological misjudgment that causes terrible problems.

译者:一则小故事,不作具体翻译。了解「精神分析」理论的同学肯定都知道,其实说的就是所谓「心理防卫机制」中的「否认」[1]。借此机会向大家推荐「心理防卫机制」,希望可以帮助各位更加了解自己。鉴于有些同学无法访问维基百科,将原文复制了一份过来。
