Stephanie, I cannot say for sure why you failed the polygraph, but it's important to understand that polygraphy has no scientific basis to begin with, so the question of why you failed the polygraph is similar to asking why a coin toss came out heads instead of tails.

It is quite common for truthful people to be falsely accused of lying by polygraph operators. See our Personal Statements page for examples:

In particular, see the statement of Gary Smith, whose situation is similar to yours:

I failed a Polygraph test. I have cronic anxiety and I was accused of infidelity and the questions that were asked I did not know them. I took the test 2-3 weeks after I was married. We both worked together at the same place been with each other 24/7. I was asked about people I didnt know and I failed why is that?

Well this is my actual chart. I didn’t use countermeasures nor did he accuse me of that. I got suspicious of the examiner when he wouldn’t give me the results until the next day. Then he called and said I failed. So I asked if he could send me the charts so I could get another opinion because I told the truth. He said he couldn’t do that but I could make an appointment to go over the charts. So I did a little research so I would know what I was looking at. He pulled all 3 charts up and I think they all pretty much looked the same. I got a picture of the last one when he got mad because I said it looked like I passed. He said he would give me my money back if not satisfied as got mad and said we were done and kicked me out of his office. He said how dare I question his veracity? I knew he was full of shit! I just wanted a unbiased opinion, so thank you. Who offers to give your money back if they did a good job?

So if you take out the breathing what would you score it and why?


First, bear in mind that this is just a portion of a polygraph chart. Only a single relevant question is shown. Also, I suspect that a polygraph operator might adjust the amplitude of the electrodermal channel before hand scoring the charts.

Omitting the respiratory channel, I would score the one relevant question compared to the two "control" questions as "0" or inconclusive, because the reactions on the electrodermal and cardio channels appear to be about the same in magnitude.

I think that most polygraph operators would score these charts as "No Opinion," or, perhaps, opine that the examinee was attempting polygraph countermeasures through controlled breathing.

This is because the breathing rate is much slower than the 12-18 breaths per minute that polygraph operators (per NCCA's Test Data Analysis pamphlet) expect to see.

Only solution is reapply with a new name and social security number.  Though you will have to get your old college transcripts, employment history, and other stuff to match your new fake identity.

Yeah, that's just what this guy needs, compound a failed polygraph with reapplying under a false name.  Now we know why you were disqualified.

What a fucking moron.

I will tell you for a FACT that NSA, DIA, FBI, and CIA ban you for LIFE when you fail the poly.  Even though they tell you that you can still reapply in a year, which you can, but they will still reject your application.  They may be so kind as to tell you that you failed the background check, which includes the poly in their opinion, on your previous recruitment which is why you got rejected again.  Or, they won't tell you.  You take days to fill out another application, put in all that hard work, and get rejected again.  Fail the poly, banned for life.  Only solution is reapply with a new name and social security number.  Though you will have to get your old college transcripts, employment history, and other stuff to match your new fake identity.
