freudian slip

A Freudian slip is defined as a verbal mistake which is thought to reveal a repressed belief, thought, or emotion that you have been thinking but never wanted to verbalize. If you have ever said something without thinking that was possibly negative or overly judgmental, but immediately took it back and said you didnt mean it or were just joking, that may have been a Freudian slip because you were thinking it was repressing the thought by not wanting to say it out loud.
