Polygraph Procedure Polygraph Procedure
What goes on in a polygraph "test?" What kinds of questions are asked in a polygraph examination? What is a "lifestyle" polygraph? How does the lie detector "work"? Just how accurate is the polygraph? Can truthful people fail? Can liars beat the polygraph? How can you protect yourself against a false positive outcome?

Question Concerning CQT patterns
I was wondering if there is any particular pattern that a CQT usually follows, and if so, would someone be so kind as to make me privy of this?  Thanks in advance.
