Abstract
In this report we surveyed the academic literature, hiring notices, and subject matter experts to establish a list of qualities, skills and aptitudes for exceptional intelligence analysts. We also list several key kinds of knowledge that must be possessed by analysts in order to be effective. In a second phase in the review, we identify which qualities, aptitudes and skills can be measured using psychometric instruments. Finally, for each skill and quality of the effective analyst, we consider whether it can be improved by training, or whether it is a skill that must be used as a basis for selection.
