reaction formation - doing the opposite of what you truly believe (ie. a gay man takes part in anti-gay rallies)

undoing - doing the opposite of your urges to try and overcome them and do the socially correct thing (ie. you beat your wife but you try to be super nice to your female coworkers)

dissociation - talk about it as if it didnt happen to you. kind of like third person. you dont acknowledge that it hit you personally.

isolation of affect - talk about it without emotion. so here you are admitting it happened to you but it isnt stirring up any emotional reaction.

this is off the top of my head, please feel free to correct me if i'm wrong.
