In reply to Re: What defense mechanism does this sound like?, posted by Apperceptor on March 14, 2004, at 3:10:13 continue in a psychoanalytic context (which I may or may not support myself) terms of placing the defense in context, I would assume she is taking the role of professor as a means of defending against the anger she is feeling toward her father.

Hidden Impulse: Anger toward father
Anxiety: Guilt
Defense: I become a professor

(for this triangle, see "Individual psychotherapy and the science of psychodynamics (2nd Ed)." David H. Malan, Oxford University Press, 2001.)
