PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

 

Central Intelligence Agency, 1965‑1986.

Founding Director, Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior, 1974-1986

 

Major focus on the behavioral assessment of key foreign personalities. In 1974, founded and led from its inception the Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior (later re-designated the Political Psychology Center.) An inter‑disciplinary behavioral sciences analytic group, the Center served as the focal point for the government’s assessments of the personality and decision making of key foreign leaders and leadership groups. The assessments were used to prepare the President and other senior U.S. government officials for summit meetings and other high level negotiations and to assist in crisis situations. Dr. Post took the lead in preparing the Camp David profiles of Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat for President Jimmy Carter, and played a major role in developing video personality profiles of world leaders in preparing the President and other cabinet officials for summit meetings. He initiated the U.S. government’s research efforts in the psychology of terrorism, and in the psychology of treason, and conducted systematic research on the dynamics of negotiations, and indirect assessment methodology.

 

For conceptualizing, implementing, and leading the Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior, he was awarded the Intelligence Medal of Merit in 1979. He received the Studies in Intelligence Award in 1980.

 

Director of Political and Military Psychology, Defense Systems, Inc., (DSI), 1986‑1987.

Co‑principal investigator for research study of Crisis Management at the Department of State, sponsored by the Bureau of Intelligence and Research, Department of State; studied behavioral aspects of military command and control system; contributed to studies of Soviet disinformation, Soviet deception, the dynamics of insurgencies, and corruption.
