This work investigates the origin and development of the theory of defense mechanisms, as well as the classification of defenses and specific issues of research made on them. Special attention was paid to methodical diagnostic tools. The scientific problem that is raised in this work is the difficulty of reliably and reasonably measuring the presence and degree of protective functioning of an individual. As a result of the research, a methodological tool to assess defense mechanisms of an individual was developed using the method of pairwise comparisons, and its diagnostic capabilities were studied. The scientific novelty is presented by the fact that, within this research the method of pairwise comparisons was used for the first time as a methodical technique in assessing defense mechanisms of a person.
