Are “Intelligence Specialist – MIT Agent” stereotypes depicted in TV series and movies accurately reflecting true nature of such persons?
MIT personnel are legally public servants, and perform their duties within the frame specified in “State Intelligence Services and National Intelligence Organization Law” No 2937. Scenario writers naturally feel the desire to include unrealistic excitement and appeal in their works for marketing purposes. Executive producers focusing on their fictional characters may cause misunderstandings as they extend the gap between reality and fiction. Viewers should keep in mind that such productions are likely to focus on commercial returns instead of realistic depictions.
