In general, Sherry, the inhibition of one "drive" (i.e. the frustration of one need) leads to the hypertrophy of one or more other "drives" in an evidently compensatory way. If you know this person, does he exibit this behavior? If not, how does this deficit become observable other than verbally? This is equivalent to asking you "why do you believe him?.
