To pass a polygraph just be honest and relax


I told a polygraph examiner that I was trying to relax and he stated in his report that I admitted to using countermeasures.  What a joke this polygraph is.  A joke that costs innocent people their careers. 


Relaxation as a countermeasure?  LOL.  Grin

BTW, I'm a victim of exactly the same bad joke as you, Wandersmann!

I find it funny that you can just submit a urine test and prove that you are drug free. Seems like proven science might be a little more effective here.



I have often believed that a "loyalty oath" could serve the same purpose as the polygraph and/or BI.

If an employee then engages in espionage (for whatever reason), s/he could be prosecuted for perjury as well as for secrecy/national security violations.  Wink

I recently watched on YouTube the 1985 testimony of traitor Christopher Boyce pertaining to his service to the Soviet Union.  His first portion of testimony dealt with the fact that he never should have been hired.  He highlighted his background investigation that was a superficial joke.  He was a counter-culture druggie and the background investigation only included interviews of his retired FBI Agent father's friends.  Therein lies the problem.  It all comes down to the BI.  I think there is more nepotism, favoritism, PC, and "old boy", now sometimes "old girl" networking, than ever before.  People are getting selected for positions for all of the wrong reasons and no one in authority has the guts to address this issue head on.  The Government slugs in personnel are more interested in making sure their paperwork looks good than in really addressing quality in our workforce. 

The next part of Boyce's testimony was enraging.  This traitor POS starting lecturing Senators Cohen (former Clinton Secretary of Defense), Gore (former VP), Nunn (Rep-GA) and other committee members on how he would have never applied for the job if he was given a polygraph exam.  He lectured these stooges on why we need to polygraph everybody.  It appears that these lackluster politicians chose to follow the advice of a traitor rather than really digging into a careful analysis of the problem by listening to what he was saying.  I wonder how much this singular testimony by a despicable traitor played into our current polygraph policy? Shocked

Yes, I'm familiar with the Chris Boyce/Dalton Lee scandal.  Chris, the "idealist", had an FBI father and his accomplice Dalton Lee was  a useless, but well-connected, cokehead.  To help save his rear end, the opportunistic Boyce told the Congressional investigators whatever he thought they would want to hear.
This is remarkably similar to the conduct of the notorious sexual predator/mass murderer, Ted Bundy.  In 1989, hoping to save himself from execution, Bundy began to make statements attributing his behavior to the  availability of pornography. Fortunately, his cynical, opportunistic behavior failed to save his life.

A physical exam is usually part of the application process. 

I don't know what, if any, psychometric test instruments are used by CBP. Cool

It is in that precisely kind of environment that "quickfixes" and their colleagues fluorish.  Grin

Crystal,

I just took my medical last week for CBP officer, all i had was a medical with hearing and vision test, no PFT-1
Some locations do the medical and PFT 1 on the same day, not here in Detroit.  Just received an email to schedule my PFT 1 from CHS yesterday.Quote:

Hello, I was wondering if you passed your BP polygraph test. I hope so, thanks.
