    At 1st it was very casual. I was asked questions about knowing right from wrong. explained the difference between a white lie and a lie seen as deceptive. After about an hour of what to expect from the actual test I was given a 5 minture break.

    When I returned from break, the switch was flipped. It was no longer a friendly interaction, no more Mr. Nice guy. the Polygrapher hooked me up and I moved my hand due to the 70lbs of pressure on my arm, arm fell asleep. He turned off the machine and stepped outside to ask a "supervisor" if I'm allowed to retest because I moved. The Polygrapher didn't have any issues with my answers just my breathing and sitting still. So I continued the process without any further issues. I also am not sure if I passed or failed the test.
    I passed

    The Polygraph is an investigative tool, no more, no less. It's a controversial tool as well, and the subject of considerable controversy, even among cops. All of that said, your experience is pretty typical.

    I'm not a LEO yet and have not done much research on this but personally I think confidence is a big thing in these... I've had both polygraph and CVSA now (passed both), and I think you have to just go into it with the mindset that you are 100% confident that you are telling the truth and don't worry about the style of questions or the demeanor of the interviewer or anything. They might toss you a few hooks but as long as you stick to your guns you should be fine. Unless of course you are actually trying to hide something, then I can't offer any advice

    New spin on the poly ququestions!

    I know that there are tons of questions on this forum regarding polygraphs! However I have never seen this one asked.
    I went for my poly this morning, the pre test interview went good, and the test itself went good. The examiner stopped and said that it looks like I might be showing deception but not enough to raise any alarms. He told me to just relax and then we did two more tests. But there was no post test interview, its the fact that he didn't question me after significant to me passing or failing? Has anyone else had this happen?
