Behavioral profiling: The case of the disappearing 777 IV

CNN just reported that the aviation authorities may consider using psychological tests of pilots in the future. This is a move in the right direction, but the authorities will certainly screw it up if they don’t form a committee of behavioral psychologists to decide what test to administer to whom. The psychologist interviewed on CNN mentioned the Rorschach, TAT, MMPI and a few other tests, none of  them behavioral. This means they will avoid effective but controversial valid tests such as Fanatic Religious Behavior test, Extreme Attitudes test, the EPPS, the Interview Video Analysis, Psychodrama and behavioral (Moreno) and so on. Again, the most predictive test for normal behavior of pilots is behavioral observation over a period of a year or more, analysed by a special app with a score passed or not passed. The test is great and will be unconstitutional therefore we would need congress to get in on the act. Ladies and gentlemen, don’t raise your hopes too high, humans are too political about everything, especially other countries passengers lives!
