Abstract

Textbooks, which have tended to include psychoanalytic concepts, have used the term compensation more or less vaguely. Most authors refer to compensation only suggestively, while others, two in particular, Morgan (1) and Groves (2), have delved extensively into the problem. These writers, however, present rather elaborate expositions on the concept of compensation, but give practically no experimental data on the problems related to it. A review of the literature (3) shows no significant experimental data existing on the problem. It seems that most sources of information are to be traced directly to the Freudian exponents and are mostly of a clinical origin. Information has been derived observationally, rather than experimentally.
