There is no 'standard'.

It's a bunch of witch doctor voodoo science. I can tell you I straight up 'lied' on my poly's, some of which I passed and some of which I failed.

lolz.

Seriously. At what? 200-250 a pop (American Dollars), it's a great little scheme that pays the rent/bills. Mix that in with 'Sex Offender' treatment and you got a perfect little playing field.

This whole forum is gonna be a interesting read.

And the best thing? I never used any 'countermeasures'. It's all about the questions that were being asked.

Half-truths/Half-lies.


Gotta admit though, at about 25k worth of bills later (OH, EXCUSE ME, I meant 25k of financial ass-rape), it's quite the racket.

Some of these 'Treatment Providers' and 'Polygraphers' should be brought up on RICO violations/offenses.

Hell, there isn't an engineer in my state that has a policy/process on how Polygraph machines are even 'calibrated'. Much less how they share that 'information'/'software'.

Certainly, there are standards. Calibration and other standards can be found at the web site of the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM). 

Do I understand you to say you paid 25k for a sexual offender treatment program?
Did it work?

Yea, easily 25k. Work? I'll pleasure you with a response. Haha, er, no. Not even sure why I was in there to begin with. Not for some chump ass misdemeanor. Define 'work'. What exactly was I supposed to 'learn' there?

It's ok though, guy like you (or gals for that matter, lets be gender neutral) make your money either way.

Like I said, the 'system' got their cash, and you guys yours, so it's all good.

Just remember that people (at least me) have VERY long memories.

Oh, and if I learned anything in 'Sex Offender' treatment, it was patience. The time will come. Most assuredly.

It's a misnomer to state that polygraphists calibrate their instruments. They only check to see if they are within the manufacturer's specifications. Calibration requires setting the parameters to an established known standard; this is usually done by a technician who knows how to make the amplifier gain adjustments.

Also, since the measurements made with the polygraph instruments are not quantitative, precise calibration is not crucial.

What it boils down to is ensuring you have at least an inch and half needle swing for a quarter inch of pnuemo bellows expansion, the same swing for a 2 mmHG change on the sphygmomanometer, and a quarter inch swing for every 2,000 ohms of skin resistance change. This is about as scientific as adjusting your old distributor points with a feelers gauge.

I am surprised to find anyone remembering what a feeler gauge was.  It was the only way of setting your points and plugs in the "Old Days".

If I recall, I remember a feeler gauge from working on old school VW's. So yea, your not alone.

Really, I have never seen a polygraph needle.  Perhaps you have a picture of one?  Or maybe you mean a pen?   You do know that the collection systems have been computerized since the 90's.

This indicative of 14 weeks of polygraph examiner training versus 11 years in the study of psycho-physiology. All you know is what was taught to you. Yes I am quite aware of computerized polygraphs. How well do you understand the discriminate analysis theory used in the algorithms?

I guess that needle pricked someone's inflated ego.  You, stefano, know nothing about my education, polygraph or otherwise, so why try to make a personal attack?

I apologize for that last post.  Sometimes I get caught up in the combative nature of the postings on this site. 

I do respect your opinion and I am very interested in your evaluation of the discriminate analysis theory used in the scoring algorithms.

No apology necessary--as David Hume said, it is our emotion that gives impetus to our ethics. I work with a myriad of instruments that both record and simply indicate--"needle swing" is a generic jargon I'm used to using for any kind of indicator movement, including digital read outs.

Pailryder, please don't stop posting. You are one of the few polygraphists here who actually have an open discerning mind. I enjoy my exchanges with you.

I have been a member this website since its inception and I have found two polygraphers that make honest, intelligent and sincere posts. They are pailryder and, years ago, Public Servant. I have often wondered if they are one and the same.

I became pretty good friends here with Public Servant. I offered him a moose hunt in Alaska but he could never take me up on it. Little bit late now since I'm closing down my mining operations and retiring. I'm 80 yrs. young now and my wife of 58 years says we need to see some of the world. I have seen a lot of it so maybe I can show her where I've been. I hope to get over to see George one day.
