Robert D. Towne

In this short theoretical paper the author considers one aspect of ego function in repression. He advances the thesis that in repression the strength of the repressed impulse is intensified and calls forth added vigilance from the censor. This 'reflex of self-regulation' requires an adequately functioning and relatively autonomous ego. Ego impairment as a result of organic impairment or ego subordination, as in the case of the shame-feeling ego, may compromise the self-regulatory function.
