Intelligence is perhaps the most “misunderstood” field of study of all security studies. The concept of intelligence, which is often referred to as the reflection of “espionage stories” in the big cost movie productions or interesting characters in exciting novels in popular culture, is a body of studies that has become a serious field of study and has been on its way to becoming a "discipline" for a long time. Of course, when talking about the concept of intelligence, it would not be correct to say that the concept is a purely academic field of study. It is an undeniable fact that some intelligence is “operational” and includes “action-packed” actions that may or may not be told in stories. However, in today's world, intelligence is no longer limited to its operational dimension, and has become one of the ways of seeking and learning information about what will happen in the future.
