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?

Do the investigators administering the polygraphs, threaten you by telling you that you are going to jail if you don't tell them the truth? How are we supposed to react to this? Thanks!Grin
