Abstract:

This paper describes four clinical psychological contributions to the study and practice of military deception. First, inferential techniques yield five generic factors of deception intention, behavior, perception, teleology, and systems. Second, reliability studies and causal modeling techniques applied to these factors are slowly leading to the development of a prescriptive, deception data base. Third, characteristics of those who deceive well versus those susceptible to deception are being identified through modified task analyses. Fourth, inferences are being made as to the reliability, validity, and deception potential of foreign research in behavioral sciences. The above have relevance for the selection, training, and performance of military deception planners and analysts. Author
