After years of working in the CIA with the mission of preventing nuclear terrorism and other disasters, some old habits were imprinted on former spy Amaryllis Fox.

“I try to get rid of those instincts.

According to Fox, CIA agents are trained to master skills that ordinary people do not know and they will stick with them for a long time, even for life.

They are trained to blend into their cover so they can pass a polygraph test, to find the perfect meeting spot, secluded enough to avoid eavesdropping by their opponents, but reasonable enough to be able to

Even when she returned to normal life, Fox still suffered from `occupational disease` when she often observed her surroundings and automatically located objects she thought were intelligence signals, such as chalk or pills.

“The habits of paying attention to suitable areas to operate are still imprinted in my mind.

The former spy also said that she has a habit of sitting with her back to the wall in restaurants because it makes her feel more comfortable.

In addition, Fox revealed that there is an old habit that makes her husband feel `crazy`.

“When you are trained in counterintelligence, one of the things you are taught is not to anger the supervisor and think you are intentionally losing them (by following).

The former spy also said that dealing with `stalkers` is unlike what most people read or see in movies.

“The way people fight on TV or in movies, when someone jumps on a train and “cuts off,” or they jump from rooftop to rooftop with their weapon drawn, none of that is real.

The former spy believes that what movies are conveying about spies and the CIA is unrealistic and does not accurately reflect the important contributions of women in missions.

Fox worked in the CIA whose primary mission was to prevent weapons of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands, analyzing threats that she said would alarm Americans if they knew about them.
