carmo,

All it suggests is that your hand was not as sweaty as your polygrapher would have liked. Understand that no polygrapher can tell whether or not you're telling the truth: polygraph "testing" has no scientific basis and no diagnostic value, as you'll find explained in Chapter 1 of The Lie Behind the Lie Detector.
