    Seems to me that if you had, then you could say "no" and they wouldn't know the difference....

    My brother in law called a psychic line once. They asked him his name, and he said, "You tell me."

    I'm not advocating trying to beat or be dishonest on the poly, but knowing what to expect and how the poly works is probably helpful for those completely clueless and worried about it.

    The resources on the site are interesting. Anyone considering a career in LE or who is facing a poly should at least review the materials.

    Just go into your poly with honesty and don't change any answers once you stated them and you should be fine.

    With all the stuff on the internet, you're bound to run into some of the crap eventually.

    The whole point of the "Poly" during the hiring process is to see how consistant you are with your answers and your original application. Don't over think it....you'll just stress yourself out and fail.

Obviously I didn't continue to watch it but I am curious as to their reaction?

    No, because you'd explain it to the detective. The question would be rephrased with the qualifier, "Other than what you have told me..."

    Don't ask around too much about the polygraph because it'll get you in trouble. They might think you were looking around on ways to lie and still pass.
