Abstract : For this report, an analysis of proposed characteristics of Military Intelligence interrogator personnel and performance in interrogator training was conducted. This analysis is part of a broad-based initiative by the Department of Human Intelligence (HUMINT), U.S. Army Intelligence Center and Fort Huachuca (USAIC and FH), to improve interrogator performance and proficiency. The effort was designed to obtain measures on interrogator characteristics using marker tests, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the California Psychological Inventory (CPI), biographical data, and other pertinent personnel proficiency scores (e.g., ASVAB, DLPT), and relate these measures to several performance milestones in the interrogator training process. A total of 170 97ElO students participated. The overall analysis yielded several significant but low-order correlations between predictor measures and performance criteria, particularly with scale scores from the CPI and ASVAB. An important consideration was the need for more precise measures of interrogator performance vice academic scores. Further work is suggested using scenario-based data collections in one-on-one interrogation situations.
