THE Byrne (1961; Byme, Barry, and Nelson, 1963) RepressionSensitization (R-S) scale was designed to measure behaviors associated with the avoidance of threatening stimuli at the low scoring pole and the approach to threatening stimuli at the high scoring pole. Byrne (1964) has cited consistent support for the relationship between the R-S scale and defensive style with the repression and sensitization categories to be viewed as homogeneous groupings of individuals lying at the extremes of a continuum of psychological defense.
