      I dont really know how. That video was a pain. You answer to a situation with no feedback and they grade you on that. I tried to use my best judgement but I kept feeling like my answers to situations might now be the ones they wanted.

      I have never encountered something like that before.
      I have my VBT on the 13th, the letter I received in the mail specifically states that the VBT counts as the SI and that I won't take part in an SI. I wouldn't worry about it, most likely you passed.

        Actually, I never had to sign a confidentiality agreement and the examiner never said I coudn't discuss how the process works. It is no secret.

During your poly did the administrator ask you to NOT stay calm or relaxed, but to stay tense? I dont know how these Polygraph administrators sleep at night.
          No my examiner was very nice and pleasant. He said he knows everyone gets very nervous, but that the nerves wouldn't affect the test. He def didn't say to stay tense.

              Seriously rite? It's like posting on the forums is one thing but its even better when you can put a name to a face. Looking forward to meeting you Ray, well hopefully I pass that PFT2... gotta practice my 220 yard dash lol.

                Go ahead and run the risk.... I know I signed one, and my examiner spelled it out for me as well before I left.

                • My examiner said nothing of the sort. If he was supposed to, maybe he forgot... not my fault. Anyway, I didn't say anything that anyone didn't already know about a polygraph test. But, if you think that there is some risk in what I said, I deleted the comment to be on the safe side. Thanks for your concern.

                    hey man, I got that letter too, now that you mention it. PLease let me know how that goes, and if they do call you in for an interview after. Im seriously so screwed up right now over this whole thing. I was in the USCG before and I had DHS Mandated defense training blah blah blah and I tried to answer all my questions according to thier guidelines but I just like I scored MISERABLY. The Customs officer came out after about 25 minutes and shook my hand and said "You are all set and the Hiring center will be in contact with you."

                    That sounds like the same answer I have gotten in job interview where I didnt get the job lol

                      Unless you acted like Tackleberry during the VBT, you should be fine.

                          Really? That was going to be my approach, I've watched Police Academy 15 times in the last week to prepare. I even whittled a replica .44 magnum out of wood so I can pull mid video.
