Abstract : The use of the opposing factors of target capability and target presumed intention as bases for decision by a sample of 131 CIC decision makers in 60 abstract tactical situations depicted by static displays was examined. Very wide differences in strategy and tradeoff points were observed, with most decision makers weighting presumed intention more heavily. In comparison with rank and job experience, the CIC school attended was the most important factor correlating with decision strategy. Considerations of the subject's consistency in his decisions, difficulty of problem, and the subject's stated confidence in his decisions are discussed. (Author)
