Psychological Profiling


Published on Feb 5, 2013
BBC Inside The Mind Of Adolf Hitler - A Documentary, with dramatised elements, looking at the psychological profile of Adolf Hitler compiled by a team of Harvard psychologists in 1943.The film interviews former colleagues and the former family doctor who had fled to the USA and using Freudian techniques and theories of the day they came up with a profile and predicted how he would react to certain situations, concluding that he would not surrender and would be most likely to commit suicide when faced with defeat.This led to future profiling of many world leaders and dictators.
