Yes Test Response

Is it ok to initiate a response during a relevant question during the Yes Test?

If I am being told to answer yes to something that is not true (Did you steal X? Answer: Yes)... shouldn't it be that a response should be created?

The idea is to create a response showing that a person is stressed because they are lying.  In that case, If I am being forced to lie and say I did something that I didn't, that makes me very anxious... what's the harm in showing a response?

I'm very concerned about this, thanks for any response.

In the "LBTLD" it says not to make a response.  I am hoping I didn't screw something up and fail my test because of this.  I was forced to answer yes and made sure there was a response to back it up because it was a lie (even though it was a relevant question).

The examiner asked about this, and I said it's because I felt very angry and frustrated/anxious that I had to answer yes to something like that.

Should I be ok, or did I just screw myself over?

Thanks.

No.

By producing reactions to the relevant questions during the "yes test," you increase the likelihood of being deemed deceptive and/or having used countermeasures.

It was a mistake to augment reactions to the relevant questions. Time will tell whether your explanation for such reactions was accepted.

I know that the following questions have probably been answered many times before, but I will ask them again just to be clear. If a polygraph test taker is asked a control question such as "have you ever told a lie", in addition to exaggerating his physiological responses, is the test taker better off being truthful or deceptive? Will a truthful response preceded by some drama such as apparent hesitation to make an embarrassing/damning confession, combined with exaggerated physiological responses during the deliberation period, decrease the likelihood that the test taker receive a false positive result?

First, I note that your question is not related to the original topic (the Yes Test), but rather to CQT polygraphy in general. It would have been better to have posted your question to a new message thread.

In response to control questions, one should provide the expected answer. Whether that answer is truthful or not is immaterial.

If you answer the probable-lie control question, "Did you ever lie to get out of trouble?" with a truthful "yes," then the polygraph operator will question you about the lies you have told to get out of trouble and move to exclude them from the scope of the question: "Other than what you told me, did you ever lie to get out of trouble?" If you again answer "yes," you'll be questioned more until you finally answer the quesion with the expected answer, "no."

The questions (and the examinee's answers) are all reviewed during the pre-test phase, before the examinee is connected to the polygraph instrument.

should a CM be used when answering a probable lie control question with a yes, then when that is "cleared" up for the examiner, and he ask other than this instance have you lied to get out of trouble you can answer no and the registerd response would be "lower" than when you applied the CM?
