Repression sensitization is a personality trait which indicates that there are regularities in peoples response to threat. Some habitually resolve approach avoidance conflicts by avoidance (characterized by repression, denial or dissociation) others by approach (characterised by identification or intellectualization)

It may also be classified as a coping strategy or defence mechanism. See List of MeSH codes (F01)
