How to Think Like an Intelligence Analyst – Part 1
January 19, 2018
We all like to think we make logical decisions. After all, if we decide an issue, our conclusion makes sense to us, or else we would not have come to that conclusion, right?
On top of that, when we learn that others have looked at the same issue and come to a different conclusion, what do we do? If we’re being honest, most of us will think the others are wrong and immediately look for evidence to prove it.
The truth is, we are all susceptible to shoddy thinking. In fact, the intellectual processes that have helped the human race to grow and prosper are the same processes that leave us susceptible to poor judgment.
Those are the processes the intelligence analyst must leave behind.
Advocacy vs. Critical Thinking
Intelligence analysts put the puzzle together. They analyze information from various sources to try to understand what U.S. adversaries are doing and what they are likely to do next. Critical thinking is the key to success.
The problem is that not many of us know how to think critically. David T. Moore, an IC professional and author of “Critical Thinking and Intelligence Analysis,” contends that critical thinking is not taught in many college courses, despite the fact that many syllabi list “critical thinking” as an objective.
The closest students come to critical thinking, Moore says, is usually the scientific method. Otherwise, students in non-science majors are unlikely to have the training they need to be successful. That’s because what is taught in schools most often is advocacy, the art of arguing to prove a point. Starting in secondary school, we are taught to develop a thesis and “prove” it through argumentation.
Unfortunately, advocacy reinforces some of the mental processes that make critical thinking so challenging, such as selectively seeking information that confirms our point of view. And we may not even be aware that we’re doing it.
Mental Models: The Good and the Bad
Our minds are full of information that we’ve accumulated over the years, from childhood through today. Our brains do a wonderful job of using that information to create mental models of the world. We use those mental models daily to make decisions about life. They provide an intellectual shortcut that highly useful in getting through the day. But they have a dark side.
Richards J. Heuer, author of “Psychology of Intelligence Analysis,” explains that mental models often color and control our perception of events to such a large extent that we can’t truly see what is happening in front of us. In other words, we tend to perceive what we expect to perceive.
Take a look at the following image*: What do you see?
Our mental models may have us focus on the three identical shapes. Or they may have us focus on the three commonly heard phrases. Most people, however, will not notice that the articles in each of the three phrases are repeated. (If you did notice, congratulations! You’re in the minority.) Since we did not expect to see the articles repeated, most people simply don’t see the repetition.
Intelligence analysts, Heuer explains, develop expectations about the motivations of actors in foreign countries. Evidence that fits those expectations tends to be easily assimilated, while evidence that contradicts those expectations tends to be ignored.
These models are notoriously difficult to crack. Even when we are presented with evidence that invalidates the model, we are reluctant to give in. Instead of looking at the issue objectively from many viewpoints, we gravitate toward information that validates what we already believe.
Look around and see for yourself. American discourse today is full of people making judgements from vastly different mental models. One side looks at the other and simply cannot understand why certain facts don’t sway their opinions.
Because we do not want our opinions to be swayed. We want our models to be validated. And we will go through mental gymnastics to make it happen.
In the next post we will look at a sample of techniques used in the intelligence community to break down these processes and make critical thinking live up to its name.

Do You Have to be Perfect to Get a Security Clearance?
December 9, 2017
If a perfect human being exists, the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) has yet to meet her (or him). That’s why the “whole person concept” is such an important part of the security clearance process.
Brandie Schieb, Chief of Recruitment at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), says investigators are much more interested in lifestyle patterns than they are in any single activity or event.
For example, if there’s drug use in your past or a criminal record, investigators will consider mitigating factors such as your age at the time, the severity of the offense and its likelihood of happening again.
“[Investigators] understand people grow up, they mature, they go through college, so they’re not looking at one incident that doesn’t reflect someone in the best light,” says Schieb.
For younger students who have an eye on working for the IC in the future, here are some proactive steps you can take now.
- Watch your words on social media: Publicly available information can be looked at by an investigator. Information posted years ago could still trigger questions during an investigation.
- Play it smart at parties: If you’re at a party where people are using drugs, use discretion, as illegal drug use is one reason that may result in a denial of a security clearance. Also, just because marijuana use may be legal in places like the nation’s capital, it is still illegal under federal law.
- Think about the company you keep: Investigators are going to ask about the people you surround yourself with and how you spend your free time.
“It’s a reflection back upon how you make choices and whether you’re a trustworthy individual,” says Schieb.
Applicants can also expect questions about:
- High, bad or delinquent debt: Investigators want to know if you live up to your financial obligations, which can translate to an overall picture of whether an applicant is good on his or her word.
- Mental health: Medical history is reviewed during the investigative process. According to ODNI, as long as a mental issue does not impact a person’s ability to use sound judgment, it should not be an issue. In fact, seeking medication or therapy to handle life stress can be seen as a positive factor.
One of the things that can lengthen the clearance process timeline is having a lot of foreign contacts. So, if you studied abroad, for instance, and keep in touch with friends in that country, just remember to identify them on the security form, says Schieb. This includes Facebook and Instagram friends, because social media connections are considered “close and continuing relationships,” according to ODNI.
“We tell people that if they don't really know who some people are, they should unfriend them, delete them,” says Schieb. “Some of that is because the people you give access to on Facebook then have access to your personal network and a lot of information about you.”
While U.S. citizenship is a requirement to work for the Intelligence Community, many applicants have family members who live in a different country. Some may even be living in the United States as undocumented immigrants, which brings up another concern applicants ask about: the potential for deportation of their loved ones.
“The Intelligence Community does not take action to deport people,” says Schieb. “That’s not in our jurisdiction, but we can’t guarantee that some other law enforcement agency might not do something with the information.”
In Schieb’s view, the risk for deportation is unlikely, but not guaranteed.
“We hope it doesn't deter people,” said Schieb, adding that applicants who have undocumented family members bring a unique perspective to the table, which contributes to the diversity the Intelligence Community wants.
Above all, Schieb’s best advice for applicants is to be honest and to be patient as the hiring process can take longer than a year to complete, depending on the applicant and the agency.
National Intelligence University: The Hidden Gem of U.S. Intelligence
November 28, 2017
One of the perks of working for the Intelligence Community (IC) is the opportunity to attend the National Intelligence University (NIU), an accredited, degree-granting university dedicated to the theory and practice of intelligence.
One of the perks of working for the Intelligence Community (IC) is the opportunity to attend the National Intelligence University (NIU), an accredited, degree-granting university dedicated to the theory and practice of intelligence.
The goal of NIU is to strengthen the IC through research and education. Students learn how to understand adversarial capabilities and intentions in the context of key global issues:
- Cultural and religious conflicts
- Failed and failing nation-states
- Weapons of mass destruction proliferation
- Digital transformation
- Terrorism at home and abroad
Graduates of NIU have gone on to become directors of the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and other high-level posts.
NIU publishes the Journal of Strategic Intelligence, which digs into real-life intelligence issues, as well as ways to improve intelligence gathering and analysis. Written by NIU faculty, graduate students, intelligence analysts and security professionals, the journal is published in two versions, one classified and one unclassified (Check out the unclassified version online.)
NIU is also home to National Intelligence Press Publications, a publication house for in-depth regional analysis and methodological theory and practice. Recent publications include a fascinating look at how to understand adversarial intent through the analysis of foreign business and industry.
The university’s beginning is rooted in the early 1960s when President Dwight D. Eisenhower and President John F. Kennedy championed the need for career development opportunities for U.S. intelligence professionals. Today, the university offers a range of academic options:
- Bachelor of Science in Intelligence
- Master of Science in Strategic Intelligence
- Master of Science and Technology Intelligence
- Graduate certificates in geographic specialties, leadership and management
Intelligence professionals who do not wish to pursue a degree or graduate certificate can take individual courses for professional development, earning continuing education credits. Graduate students can compete for research funds that will allow them to travel outside of the Washington, D.C., area to research their theses.
Scheduling options include part-time, full-time and executive-style sessions. The university accepts transfer credits from other accredited colleges and universities, although all required core courses must be taken at NIU.
Because the IC offers tuition support for both public and private accredited universities, the cost of NIU is nominal for IC employees.
Intelligence Community Cyber Careers
November 20, 2017
While we haven’t yet reached “The Matrix,” the world today is a complex array of digital information. That’s why cybersecurity is everyone’s business.
The U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) leads the way in cyber operations. While not every intelligence agency is directly charged with a cyber mission, each contributes in some way to protecting U.S. assets and gathering intelligence on hostile foreign activities, including cyber activities.
Software developers at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) write the code that does the heavy lifting to meet geospatial intelligence goals. They develop tools to capture and analyze geographic data to understand what’s happening in the world today and to predict what will happen tomorrow. NGA software developers will:
- Analyze requirements, evaluate alternatives and develop solutions to meet agency needs
- Plan and design systems architecture
- Lead testing and integration of new solutions

Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Here’s How We See It
October 19, 2017
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and it’s the IC’s favorite month of the year. Read on to learn why …
We all love to have data and information at our fingertips, but nobody loves it more than cyber criminals who see a pot of gold at the end of every email stream.
The scope of the problem was demonstrated once again with the data breach of Equifax, one of three major credit reporting companies in the United States. The hack exposed personal information on 145.5 million people, nearly a third of America. Data collected included names, birthdates, addresses, social security numbers and even drivers’ license numbers.
The ramifications of this crime and others like it are startling: bad guys can use the data to open bank accounts and credit cards, starting a cascade of financial headaches for the victims.
While the Equifax breach and ransomware attacks are motivated by money, other motivations take a political turn, such as state-sponsored hackers seeking U.S. government military secrets or international bargaining positions. Other bad guys are motivated by terrorist aspirations, such as attacks on electrical power grids or nuclear power sites.
How They Do It
A handful of attacks are accomplished through a compromise in the design of technical systems. The perpetrators in the Equifax breach found a flaw in the design of a tool used to develop web apps, which allowed them to penetrate the company’s defenses. Equifax’s CEO said part of the problem was human error — an IT employee failed to update or patch a portal after being made aware of a security gap.
The weak link in the chain is often attributed to human behavior. Social engineering — manipulating a user to expose data, known as phishing — is the No. 1 cause of attacks. Up to 90 percent of security breaches start as phishing attacks, either through email or text. The messages often direct users to submit information on spoof websites that look like legitimate commercial sites.
Practice Safe Computing
Most of these attacks are easy to avoid if you simply practice safe computing. Here are a few tips to help you avoid becoming a victim:
- If you get an unsolicited email, watch for spelling errors and bad English grammar. Many attacks originate overseas where the command of the English language may not be strong.
- If an unsolicited email urges you to follow a link, simply don’t do it. Check the link by hovering over it to see if it directs to a URL that makes sense.
- If you’re still not sure whether an email is authentic, and it comes from a company with which you do business, contact the sender directly by logging on to your account independently or by calling the phone number you have on file to speak with customer service.
- To avoid accidentally downloading a malicious payload, make sure your firewall and virus software is turned on and up to date.
Finally, if you want to help protect yourself, your loved ones and the country you call home from cyber espionage and terrorism, consider devoting your career to the U.S. Intelligence Community. The IC is home to the most progressive cyber units studying the most advanced cyber theory and processes, all to avert persistent and highly dangerous cyber threats.
In the next post, we will look at a small sample of cyber positions available in the IC. Until then, take a look at the IC’s outstanding benefits, and help defeat the bad guys today by practicing safe computing.

Women’s Employee Resource Group Provides Community of Support and More
August 1, 2017
Dr. Reeva Steele believes that people want to be able to make a difference at work, but they also want to be heard, seen and appreciated.
And that’s where an Employee Resource Group (ERG) can make all the difference.
Dr. Steele is chair of the National Security Agency’s Women’s ERG, a diverse group of women who meet monthly to share experiences, network, mentor and learn from each other, promote awareness of issues women encounter, and effect change.
Groups within the ERG sponsor panels on topics like what it means to be technical at NSA and taking risks with one’s career. Working groups within the ERG examine issues like part-time work opportunities, work/life balance and psychological safety in the workplace.
Group members also do outreach at elementary and high schools to tutor students and give them an idea of what technical careers are like.
There are also opportunities for the 10 Employee Resource Groups within NSA to collaborate. The Women’s ERG has partnered with the African American ERG on a breast cancer awareness program, and got together with younger NSA employees in the NextGen ERG to talk about issues like maternity and paternity leave.
Dr. Steele and her group have been working on capturing the stories of women at the agency, whom she calls “everyday (s)heroes.”
“There are incredible stories of both talent, in terms of what it is they’ve been hired to do, and also the whole rich tapestry of their personal lives — how they make it all work and how they support each other in making that work.”
NSA and the Women’s ERG hosted its first all-day International Women’s Summit in March with speakers, an author’s talk, workshops and panel discussions on topics like equality in the workplace, gender partnerships, starting lean-in workshops, taking a stand against inappropriate behavior, and external work opportunities like international and Joint Duty assignments.
Starting in May, Dr. Steele, who works in leader and management development at NSA, planned to add a career development group and a formalized mentoring program to the ERG.
She takes pride in seeing the women in the group “blossom, grow and connect” — and carry forward what they’ve gained in the ERG into the agency as a whole.
“One of the utter delights is seeing younger women employees come in to the Women’s ERG, and at first they’re very timid,” she says. “Then they step into a leadership role within the ERG and suddenly they’re taking on leadership roles within the agency. To me, that’s so exciting.”
Dr. Steele believes ERGs will continue to serve as agents of change. She’s reminded of anthropologist Margaret Mead’s quote about the effectiveness of small organizations: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
The Big 3 of Career Development
February 3, 2017
Whether you're a fresh college grad or a seasoned pro, one of the best things you can do for your career is expand your skills. That includes building higher levels of expertise in your current profession or branching out to new fields of study. In the IC, you have the opportunity to do both.
For those who want to expand their current skill base, training helps them keep up with evolving technology, processes and best practices. Managerial and program management training provides the skills needed to lead technical teams and climb the ranks in your chosen field.
Others may become interested in occupations outside of their current profession, and training helps them prepare for a new field that may provide greater levels of personal fulfillment.
Although programs in each IC agency differ, most agencies offer several opportunities for professional growth and career development. Let's take a look at the Big 3 of Career Development:
- Training: Internal classes, workshops, seminars and professional development programs provide busy professionals with an efficient way to gain valuable career skills. These on-the-job types of training require smaller time commitments than degree programs and are perfectly suited for busy professionals who aren't looking for another college degree.
- Tuition Assistance: For those with higher educational goals, the IC offers many programs to help you get another degree (bachelor's or post-graduate) without breaking the bank. College tuition is expensive, but some of the IC agencies may help you cover the cost, and in some cases even provides time off from work to study. Opportunities are available to study at nearby public institutions or even to attend the National Intelligence University for a more immersive experience.
- Mentoring: For those new to the IC, mentoring relationships can provide invaluable insight and guidance. Mentoring programs are common among IC agencies, and these one-on-one relationships with an experienced IC professional will help you learn the ropes and make better career decisions.
Taking advantage of one or all three of these opportunities will expand your skills and put you on a dynamic career path. To learn more, see our general benefits page and check the career development options of each agency: NSA career development, DIA career development, NGA career development, ODNI career development.
Here’s the BIG Difference Between Private Sector Careers and the IC
October 26, 2016
If you’ve ever wondered how careers in the Intelligence Community (IC) compare to careers in the private sector, here’s the biggest difference of all.
When you work for the private sector, your goal is to make a company successful. When you work in the IC, your mission is to keep the country safe.
And that’s not an easy task.
Our country faces untold numbers of threats every day. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, outlined those threats on Capitol Hill earlier this year during hearings on worldwide threat assessments.
In his testimony, Clapper refered to the threats as a “litany of doom.” In 55 years of government service, he said, he has never witnessed a more diverse set of threats as we have today.
From international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction to cyber criminals probing the Internet of things, Clapper said the threat environment is unlike anything that has existed before.
Thankfully, employees of the IC are up to the task. Forward-thinking solutions are developed every day by innovative professionals who dedicate their careers to making a difference – a BIG difference.
In his closing comments, Clapper tipped his hat to the employees who make it happen. “I always appreciate the opportunity to talk about the incredible work being done by the women and men of the IC.”
We couldn’t have said it better ouselves.

Follow These Tips to Simplify the Clearance Process
July 30, 2016
Nothing in the IC application process causes more concern than the security clearance process. But we’re here to tell you, it’s not as bad as you might think.
There are several things you can do before you apply for your clearance that will make the process much easier. Even if you’re a few years away from submitting your application, if you follow these tips now, you’ll be thankful later.
- Do complete the security clearance paperwork honestly and to the best of your ability.
- If you’re in contact with non-U.S. citizens, do keep a list of their names.
- When traveling outside the country, do keep an itinerary of your travels and record the names of people with whom you become acquainted.
- Don’t do drugs – this includes marijuana and prescription drugs that are not prescribed to you. Marijuana use may be legal in Washington, D.C., as well as several states, but it is still prohibited by federal law.
- Don’t disregard laws or commit digital misdeeds. This includes downloading illegal media or software. We need all the computer geniuses we can get, but unethical hacking is not a point in your favor.
- Don't abuse credit. A good credit report is better than a bad one.
- Don’t abuse alcohol. Underage drinking, excessive drinking or DUIs don’t look good on your record.
Getting that clearance can take several months, depending on the agency, but a clean record and these common sense tips can give you a head start on your path to a career in the U.S. Intelligence Community.
The IC Celebrates LGBT Equality
July 15, 2016
The effort to build a diverse workforce in the IC is less about philosophy and more about basic human decency. At least that’s how Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Director Vincent Stewart sees it.
“This summit isn’t about a complicated, abstract idea,” said Stewart. “It’s about treating others as we would like to be treated: with dignity, respect and kindness.”
Stewart was among a handful of intelligence professionals speaking last month at the Fifth Annual Intelligence Community Pride Summit, entitled “Count on Your Community.”
Stewart was joined by FBI Director James Comey and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Clapper told the crowd of roughly 1,000 that he was in the Air Force when the infamous “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was adopted.
“I am thankful that – as a nation – we have put that policy behind us,” Clapper said.
Today, while the country grapples with transgender rights, Clapper says the Intelligence Community will lead by example.
“So I’ll say without equivocation ... in IC facilities ... you can use whatever restroom you feel comfortable and safe in.”
Welcome to the U.S. Intelligence Community
October 1, 2015
Let's face it: The Intelligence Community, a group of 17 U.S. intelligence agencies, is one of the most poorly understood groups in the United States government.
Most people have little knowledge about what goes on behind those classified walls. The only information they do have is gleaned from Hollywood films that are far more fiction than fact. So where does that leave the college student or young professional who dreams about a career in intelligence?
It leaves them with very few facts to make an informed career decision. And that’s what this new website is designed to address.
IntelligenceCareers.gov is the first federal government website dedicated to careers in intelligence. It is sponsored by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). As of site launch in October of 2015, four U.S. agencies are fully participating:
- Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
- National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
- National Security Agency (NSA)
- Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI)
As the site grows, more U.S. intelligence agencies will participate, creating a growing, thriving online resource for careers in intelligence.
The site features an array of tools and content that will help you make an informed decision about your career, and hopefully, help you launch an exciting, personally fulfilling career in intelligence. Use this site to:
- Match your education, skills and experience to career fields in intelligence using the Job Exploration Tool.
- Find a student program perfectly suited to you with the student program search and customizable filters.
- Learn more about the many Intelligence Community career fields, including general educational requirements, preferred experience and sample positions.
- Explore what participating agencies do, learn about their missions and their employment benefits through sections dedicated to each agency.
- Watch videos about participating agencies, read online brochures, connect through social links and download mobile apps through the resources section.
- Keep up with news and recruitment information through the news section and this blog. Stay tuned as we continue to refine the site and add more content. And, most of all, welcome to the U.S. Intelligence Community.
