Note: The short answers in this FAQ are offered to journalists and media producers to provide the following:

  1. A quick tool to prepare questions for broadcast or print interviews with Dan Korem.
  2. A guide to where to look in the book for more detailed explanations. NOTE: The brief answers here are not provided as complete / definitive answers—they are like Cliffs Notes on the Random Actor issue and should not be quoted directly.
  3. Most of the following is from:
    1. Chapter 11 — The Bunker Syndrome and the African-American and Female Factors
    2. Chapter 23 — Suicide Attackers: Casting a Wider Net

WHAT IS THE PROFILE OF THE FEMALE SUICIDE BOMBER?

  1. Most have the Random Actor profile . . . like most mass school shooters, mass workplace killers, serial killers, etc.
  2. Dan can have the host identify the Random Actor traits on his or her own . . . it is that transparent.
  3. Female attackers either possess the profile or are manipulated to temporarily possess the two Random Actor traits. (Chapter 22)
    1. Extremely unconventional, wants to be different (noted as the UNPREDICTABLE trait in the Korem Profiling System)
    2. High FEARFUL decision making (despondent, futility, etc.)
  4. In addition to the Random Actor profile, most have experienced some severe family-related trauma. Examples: loss of husband/brother; infertile; divorce, etc.

HOW HARD IS IT TO PRE-IDENTIFY A WOMAN OR ANYONE WITH THE RANDOM ACTOR TRAITS?

  1. Not  difficult if understand the two traits.
  2. Over 30,000 professionals have been trained and no cases of misidentification because the traits are extreme.

HOW DO YOU RECRUIT WOMEN TO BE RANDOM ACTOR SUICIDE ATTACKERS?

  1. Option 1: Find a woman with the Random Actor traits. (Chapter 3)
  2. Option 2: Is Packaged to have the Random Actor Traits after a severe trauma/loss (Chapter 23)
    1. Usually after a severe trauma (loss of child, brother, divorce, found to be infertile, etc.)
    2. Often they don’t carry out their attack
      1. Can cite examples and the patterns of why they don’t complete an attack

WHY ARE WOMEN LESS LIKELY TO COMMIT RANDOM ACTOR ATTACKS THAN MEN?

  1. Don’t commit violent crimes with the same frequency males of all ages. (Chapter 11 stats)
  2. Women as a group aren’t as aggressive (Chapter 11 stats)
    1. Genetic factors
      1. Study of 2-year-old boys v. girls
    2. Social factors
  3. Very few women serial killers

WHAT DO THEY THINK THEY ARE GETTING?

  1. Almost none in the Middle East are looking for some kind of reward like 70 male virgins.
  2. Most, do it without any realistic expectation. It’s just an act of rage mixed with futility.

WHAT KIND OF WOMAN WOULD LEAVE HER CHILDREN TO BE ORPHANS?

  1. Most of these women don’t have children. The minority who do are hard to find and usually have experienced some kind of severe family-related trauma.

PROVEN INTERVENTION THAT STOPS ATTACKS & GUIDES PEOPLE OUT OF THE RANDOM ACTOR PROFILE

  1. What are the themes of the 3-point intervention? (Chapter 13)
    1. Provide Change / Variability / Flexibility (accommodates their UNPREDICTABLE trait).
    2. Provide Protective factors (reduces activation of their FEARFUL trait).
    3. Counsel how to make decisions out of confidence, which will guide them out the RA profile.
  2. How quickly does the intervention work? (Chapters 13–16)
    1. To halt the catastrophic impulse: in teens and young adults, often within weeks; for adults takes longer.
  3. Where are the most important places where laypersons can apply this intervention
    1. Schools
