Polygraph, Lie Detection & Lie Detector Tests for Relationships Questions

Common Questions

Answers to the most common questions about Polygraph & Lie Detection testing for relationships

QUESTION:
My wife/husband/partner/mate is a very smart, likable, and an extremely persuasive person. Is there a way that they can beat the Polygraph & Lie Detection test or convince you that they are telling the truth when in fact they’re not? Basically, how do I know she won’t fool you or the Polygraph & Lie Detection machine?

Answer:
Can I, as the Polygraph & Lie Detection examiner, be fooled by a smooth talker? Absolutely. You know I’d be lying if I said no. Everyone has been fooled at some time in their life. But that is not the important question. The important question is this: Do I, as the Polygraph & Lie Detection examiner, trust my feelings over my polygraph charts? That answer is a resounding ‘NO’.

On many occasions, I’ve been convinced of someone’s guilt or innocence from conversation during the pre-test interview before the polygraph test is run. After I run the test and the polygraph charts show my ‘feelings’ were wrong, I immediately change my perspective to match the charts. That is the only way I can be truly objective. I believe in my Polygraph & Lie Detection testing procedure so I trust my polygraph charts more than my feelings.

The second part of this question is whether someone can manipulate the Polygraph & Lie Detection charts so that they appear to be truthful when they are not. The answer is… they can certainly try. There is plenty of information available on the Internet claiming to teach one how to pass a test when they know they are lying. I’ve read that information too. The truth of the matter is that unless an individual has long term practice and access to a polygraph instrument with someone to run bio-feedback measurements, they are not going to successfully ‘beat’ the test. If I were given a polygraph test today and tried to ‘beat’ the test, I also would be unsuccessful even though I know exactly how the test and the techniques work.

With that said, I do employ the latest techniques and equipment to recognize and eliminate countermeasure attempts and I do so quite successfully.

QUESTION:
How much will the Polygraph & Lie Detection test cost and how many questions can I ask?

Answer:
Of course, that was actually two questions, but I’ve come to realize many people don’t separate the two. This is in large part due to the influence of polygraph seen on television. Without going into a full explanation of why, the majority of polygraph tests you see done on television shows are not real polygraph tests and there is no possibility of their results being accurate. So when you see a person answering 20 or more questions for a television show, you must realize that you can’t trust the results. Those tests are for entertainment and drama, not for verifying truth.

A real Polygraph & Lie Detection test is about a single issue, not about answers to individual questions. If the issue is whether or not your mate is cheating on you, the questions asked are ones that help you get a definitive answer to the issue of whether they cheated on you. That is why if a person shows a deceptive response to even one of the questions on the exam, they fail the entire test. Why? Because they are lying about the issue by lying to even that one question.

I could easily take your money and give you a test like you see on many television shows, where the test lasts about 30 minutes and you ask as many questions as you want. The problem is you could get the same results from writing the questions down, asking your mate each question and guessing whether or not they are telling the truth. What is the point of asking a multitude of questions if you can’t trust that the results are accurate?

I utilize techniques and ask questions in ways that have been validated by years of research so that the results of the test can be trusted.

So to finally answer the questions, see our Polygraph & Lie Detection pricing page), usually takes 1 1/2 to 3 hours to complete and the number of questions is irrelevant. What is relevant is that you get a solid answer to the issue that you can trust. That is what I provide.

QUESTION:
Can I be there to watch and listen while you give the Polygraph & Lie Detection test?

Answer:
I’ll answer this question with a question. If it was you taking the polygraph, is there any chance what you said or did in a polygraph test would be influenced by your accuser sitting in the room watching and listening to every thing you said and did? More than likely. Think about the awkward feelings you already have around one another in your everyday lives because of the situation.

The answer is “no” simply because it adds a possible source of outside influence on the test and the goal of any test is to eliminate as many sources of distraction as possible. Also, many people choose to finally ‘unload’ the truth during a polygraph test because people hiding the truth desire, on a deeper level, to have that burden lifted. Your being present may actually sabotage getting the ground level truth you desire.
