Richards (Dick) J. Heuer, Jr. is a former CIA veteran of forty-five years and most known for his work on Analysis of Competing Hypotheses and his book, Psychology of Intelligence Analysis. The former provides a methodology for overcoming intelligence biases while the latter outlines how mental models and natural biases impede clear thinking and analysis. He has spoken at International Association for Intelligence Education conferences. He currently works as a consultant for the Defense Personnel Security Research Center in Monterey, California. His forthcoming book on Structured Analytic Techniques, which he is coauthoring with Randy Pherson, should be published sometime in the latter half of 2009.
