Subject(s): Politics / Political Sciences
Published by: National Institute for Intelligence Studies
Keywords: intelligence analysis; emerging adulthood; military bureaucracies.
Summary/Abstract: Intelligence analysis is a demanding “business”: good analysts are formed over long years of schooling, in-house training and arduous work. On one hand, this pressure is mounting: a strong academic background is a quintessential requirement for any aspiring “knowledge worker”, more so in analysis than any other field of work pertaining to intelligence. On the other hand,“staying in school” for longer has subtle but powerful effects on the psychological and social profile of the individual, prolonging a sort of limbo in one’s life: In his mid twenties, an individual is not quite an adult but not a teenager either. He is what Jeffrey Arnett called an “emerging adult”. Implications of this social transformation are discussed, with emphasis on required HR policies.
