Mind Games - Intelligence Analysis (NEW!)

from International Spy Museum

Program image

Spies go out into the world to
collect secrets, but without analysis, there is no real meaning. Analysts comb through
collected intel to find connections and patterns, sniff out deception, and give
context – all while avoiding the mental traps that can skew their results. Now
it is your students’ chance to test their skills, uncover their cognitive
biases, and dive into the world of intelligence analysis!

Program Details


1. This program will begin by discussing what intelligence analysis is, followed by immediately doing a couple of brain games with students (focusing on cognitive biases).
2. The program will end with an analysis exercise focusing on the hunt for Osama bin Laden and whether he is at a compound in Pakistan. (PLEASE NOTE: students do NOT need to have knowledge of 9/11 and the hunt for bin Laden to participate in this workshop).


At the end of the program, students will be able to :
- define what intelligence analysis is and why it is important
- understand cognitive biases
- learn techniques that real intel. analysts use today
