English term or phrase: hanging up
Contexto:
But these theories have so permeated our thinking about human nature, and especially our theories of personality, that when most of us try to analyze someone’s character, we automatically start thinking in terms of what fears might be “hanging them up,” what kinds of “defenses” they use and what kinds of psychologically “threatening” situations they may be trying to “avoid.”
