Despite 'Spectre' Success, 007 Likely Wouldn't Fit In at MI6

James Bond is the ultimate spy, but he could not get a job at the real MI6.

Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), commonly known as MI6, is launching a new recruitment drive to coincide with the release of the new Bond film "Spectre." However, the service wants to make sure that people understand that Bond is not representative of today's typical agent.

"James Bond would probably not be successful in joining SIS, if he were to apply," a British intelligence source told Buzzfeed. "The service he represents is not the modern reality. Teamwork is central to SIS's ability to deliver intelligence, and heroes working alone rarely achieve much."

"Having a high degree of emotional intelligence is every bit as important to SIS as educational attainment," the source continued. "They want people with a real passion for human interaction, understanding others, and dealing with the sometimes complex nature of human relationships."

In this picture taken Saturday, Feb. 20, 2015, a speed boat with a camera follows and Aston Martin along the Tiber River banks during the shooting of the latest James Bond movie "SPECTRE", in Rome. After surviving the Sony hack, production for the new James Bond thriller "SPECTRE" has moved to Rome, where crowds are lining up to catch a glimpse of 007 and the oldest Bond girl yet, 50-year-old Monica Bellucci. Daniel Craig and Bellucci have been seen around town in recent days as filming has taken them from the cobble-stoned streets of the historic center out to the Mussolini-era modern EUR neighborhood. The main thoroughfare of central Rome, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, was closed to traffic early Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015, for a nighttime car chase scene featuring Bond's silver Aston Martin. Another chase took place along the tranquil bike path down on the banks of the Tiber River. City officials expect as much as 1 million euros in permit fees alone from the filming.

Intelligence agents typically work with foreign nationals with access to sensitive information in an effort to identify and assess threats to national security. So sorry kids, chances are you won't be spending your time drinking martinis, driving Aston Martins, and flying helicopters upside down.

Nevertheless, "Spectre" is looking to have a huge opening weekend when it lands in U.S. theaters on Nov. 6, with analysts recently estimating the film could gross $80 million in a three-day span.
