Eric Berne was a Canadian-born psychiatrist best known as the creator of transactional analysis and the author of Games People Play. Bernstein received his baccalaureate degree from McGill University in 1931, and his doctorate degree in medicine and surgery in 1935. While at McGill he wrote for several student newspapers using pseudonyms. He followed graduation with a residency in psychiatry at Yale University, where he studied psychoanalysis under Paul Federn. He completed his training in 1938 and became an American citizen in 1939. In 1943 he changed his legal name to Eric Berne. He continued to use such pseudonyms as Cyprian St. Cyr (“Cyprian Sincere”) in whimsical articles in the Transactional Analysis Bulletin. Berne wrote a series of papers and articles on intuition, describing in one popular exposition his apparently uncanny ability to guess the civilian occupation of soldiers from just a few moments’ conversation with them. His musings on the faculty of intuition led to his groundbreaking work on transactional analysis.
