identification

 [i-den″tĭ-fĭ-ka´shun]
1. the defining or ascertaining of something.
2. a largely unconscious process, often a defense mechanism, by which an individual takes as his or her own the characteristics, postures, achievements, or other identifying traits of other persons or groups. This plays a major role in development of the superego and of awareness and acceptance of the standards and rules accepted by society. However, as individuals mature emotionally, their own self-identity should become clearer as they relate more to their own personal achievements and less to the accomplishments and successes of others with whom they identify. Overuse of identification as a defense mechanism denies one the opportunity of enjoying the benefits and self-satisfaction derived from one's own accomplishments. Identification is not to be confused with imitation, which is a conscious process.
