Ask Melvin Foster if he trusts the polygraph test. Despite his innocence, he was thought by many to be the Green River Killer after a failed polygraph or "lie detector" test in 1982. Meanwhile, the real killer, Gary Ridgway, passed his polygraph test despite murdering 50 women. Foster was under a cloud of suspicion for 20 years, until DNA evidence and Ridgway's confession cleared him.
In this case, 55 of 100 innocent people will either be labeled incorrectly as lying or inconclusively as "perhaps lying." And you think you have nothing to worry about if you're innocent? You don't even have a 50% chance of being cleared by the test!
Most scientists think that the polygraph is not based on science. Even former CIA Director R. James Woolsey says, "...the use of this highly flawed instrument should be radically curtailed." It is not a lie detector, it is not science, and you are gambling with your reputation when you agree to it.
First of all, don't take it. Chapter Three of "How To Beat A Lie Detector Test" gives you more than just the reasons to refuse the test. You also learn :
If you can't avoid a polygraph test, whether for a criminal matter or to get a job - don't worry. Just go to Chapter Four to learn some simple behavioral and physiological countermeasures used to pass the test (but be sure to practice).
You can see the value in information like this. I've revealed some of it in bits and pieces, through web sites, articles, courses, e-books and newsletters. Here's what people have said about those:
Most of what I get is useless information, but your info is really designed to help and is always useful. - Pola M.
I'm not a fan of e-books, to be frank. I've bought a few that were fantastic, some that were OK, and many that were flat out junk. Yours definitely belongs in the "few that are fantastic" category. - Dennis J.
So what if you are innocent. Do you really think that is all that matters? After the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01, the polygraph test failure rate went to 50% for FBI agent applicants. This wasn't because a lot of liars started applying. The FBI just changed the test, and figured it was better to throw out hundreds of innocent applicants, assuming that more liars would also be rejected. How would you like a failed FBI polygraph test on your resume?
Spies and criminals know many ways to pass a lie detector test. But even as an innocent person you can use these techniques to be sure that the test actually identifies you as innocent. With such a non-scientific and error-prone test, don't you want some peace of mind?
