Good guess.

But, it's the "Aviation Instructor's Handbook"

I was going to say "it's about cats, isn't it?"

Cat "herding", to be more specific.


About 75% of it is Freudian theory, but the first subsection doesn't have enough reference to sex and fixation on bodily functions for it to be strictly about Freud.

Isn't reaction formation a defense mechanism itself? Now I have to go check.

Probably. I made the hierarchy, but they were all piled in together.

Re: Aviation Psychology

So what's the book? Psych 101?

*ETA - woops. Reading comprehension FTW.
