There are only 4 types of MATURE defenses : Sublimation, Humor, Altruism & Sublimation.
In Kaplan they do break it down into sub categories like Narcissistic, Immature, Anxiety and Mature defenses and yes projection falls under Narcissistic defenses.
But I THINK that if its not a mature defense mechanism, then its an immature defense mechanism and then it has its subcategories ... but I could be wrong
