If the polygrapher asks you to do a math problem?

When you do the math problem after they ask, do you apply counter measures?  Is this used by the polygrapher to test for counter measures or as a comparison question?

Some polygraphers will ask examinees to solve a math problem in an attempt to discourage countermeasures by trying to convince the examinee that the polygrapher will now know what the examinee's reactions "look like" when he or she solves an arithmetic problem. The polygrapher who asks such a question expects to see a reaction to it, so it wouldn't hurt to show him one.

Explain more on this one.  She had me do a math problem as well and I used CMs on it.

It's called a CVOS. It's a form of acq test.

We are also looking for to much reaction to the math question. You should educate yourself on the subject before you put fingers to keyboard.

I personally love using the CVOS. It's not a 100%, but it's a good start.

Let me also say that I expect to see reaction to this. I expect that my examinee have done some research. I would if I were in his or her place. Many times when I catch someone and they admit it, I find that they have bought a book from a tool by the name of Doug.

I at that point tell them that they been ripped off and they could have got better info for free. Their reaction is always priceless. First they get busted because the used CM's learned from an "expert", then they're told that they could have had (what I feel is) better info for nothing.

It's better than cable.

Hi all, miss me?
Cool

Can't say I have missed you Mr. Wolf, cause I didn't know you before, but I find the above post surprisingly refreshing for a polygrapher, and I look forward to discussion of polygraphy with you, if you so choose.
  

"Although the degree of reliability of polygraph evidence may depend upon a variety of identifiable factors, there is simply no way to know in a particular case whether a polygraph examiner's Conclusion is accurate, because certain doubts and uncertainties plague even the best polygraph exams."  (Justice Clarence Thomas writing in United States v. Scheffer, 523 U.S. 303, 118 S.Ct. 1261, 140 L.Ed.2d 413, 1998.)

No offense Mr. Wolf, if that is your real name, but you are wrong.  I used CMs and passed this test.  My polygrapher used a math problem in the middle of the test and I passed.  Polygraphs are worthless once you lose the fear and realize that the polygrapher is full of lies.
