The Psychological Profile of a Dictator
In 1943 Dr. Walter Langer developed a secret psychological profile of Adolf Hitler for the United States government. It was an attempt by
the government to gain insight into the mind of Hitler and how he might react as the Second World War progressed. Dr. Langer studied the
available documents and other writings as well as personal interviews with associates of Hitler who fled Germany prior to the outbreak of
war. Much of his work focused on the three formative periods of Hitler’s life; his childhood; his down and out days in Vienna; and his
service in the German army during World War I. Using the assigned articles, construct a psychological profile of Hitler by assessing the
impact each of the three periods had on his life.
