    CIA Clinical Psychologist Ursula Wilder on Profiling World Leaders

    In this episode of Intelligence Matters, host Michael Morell speaks with Ursula Wilder, a clinical psychologist at the Central Intelligence Agency, about why intelligence agencies conduct psychological profiles of world leaders, and how past policymakers have used what they have learned to make strategic decisions.

She and Morell also discuss how policymakers respond to psychological profiles compiled by government agencies.
