To the contrary, during the Kennedy and Johnson years a clear increase in this perceptual property occurred during and after the Cuban Missile Crisis, and while it remained high into the first three months of 1964, it begins to drop; by early 1965 this measure is at about the level it had been prior to the Cuban Missile Crisis. The first two years of Reagan’s presidency are low but are consistent with the declining trend underway during President Carter’s administration. The one clear deviation throughout the entire 31 years of data occurred with Mikhail Gorbachev, where Soviet I/C started an increase into the last part of 1986 unparalleled by an increase on the part of the United States—a mismatching that had never occurred previously (Tetlock, 1988: 111).

The psychoanalytical accounts can certainly plausibly explain what has been called “Wilson’s puzzling behavior” (Walker, 1995: 698), with the Versailles Treaty debate viewed as an opportunity for expressing “deep personality needs” whereas the decisions to occupy the Mexican port of Vera Cruz and to enter World War I occasioned different responses; ultimately, however, especially with the treaty decision, “ego-defensive processes emanating from the depths of Wilson’s personality produced a flawed decision-making process and a suboptimal outcome” (Walker, 1995: 715).
