Definition Edit

Elicitation is the

[a]cquisition of information from a person or group in a manner that does not disclose the intent of the interview or conversation. A technique of human source intelligence collection, generally overt, unless the collector is other than he or she purports to be.[1]

Overview Edit

"Conducted by a skillful intelligence collector, elicitation appears to be normal social or professional conversation and can occur anywhere — in a restaurant, at a conference, or during a visit to one’s home."[2]
