Passing the Lie Detector Test?

Is there any chance that someone could explain how to exactly pass this test. I am a little bit discouraged.  I  maybe tested for the polygraph for employment purposes. I've never used anytype of illegal drugs and have remained pretty much "straight edge" my whole life, thus far.  I have read about "controled" questions and the "trickery" behind these tests and I have been told many different techniques, such as biting the inside of my cheaks after answering every question given to ensure that I have the same physicological response for each question. What is the goal here to control my physical responses and body languages as each question is given. B/c clearly this test does not measure whether one is telling the truth or not. What exactly would I have to practice before taking this test?

The most commonly used polygraph format for pre-employment screening is the "Control Question Test" (CQT), which comes in both probable- and directed-lie versions. The key to passing is to show stronger reactions to the "control" questions than to the relevant questions.

You'll find polygraph procedure explained at length in Chapter 3 of The Lie Behind the Lie Detector, while techniques for minimizing the risk of a false positive outcome are explained in Chapter 4.

I am finding this web site very informative and appreciate people like George who are willing to help inocent people from bein screwd by this junk science.  I will be looking at taking a polygraph for preemployment purposes.  While printing out TLBTLD, I ran out of toner in the printer and couldn't get the book comepletely printed.  As I know that nothing can be 100% guaranteed in keeping me from getting a false positive, will it be worth my time in printing the book and taking time to read it?  I already got one false positive on a CVSA earlier this year.

Thanks.

Smokey,

It is definitely worth the effort to finish printing TLBTLD and thoroughly reading it before undergoing this so-called testing procedure. You should be fully informed before consenting to such a process. Pre-employment polygraph screening has been declared invalid and unreliable by the National Academy of Sciences.

Thanks Polyfool.  I got the book printed off after about 3 hours of waiting.  But I'm sure it will be worth it.  I'm just glad I found this web site BEFORE taking the "test".
