If you are testing somebody else about
cheating on you or about stealing from you,
NEVER accept the results of a polygraph unless
you are present to watch it and
listen to it from start to finish!
Examiners are occasionally offered money or sex to falsely 'pass' a person.
Most examiners won't take a bribe, but some will.
And, some people being tested will try to influence an examiner with a sad story.
Examiners are human, and polygraph results are the examiner's 'opinion'.
If you are the client, and you are having a person tested,
follow these two instructions or you might regret it later:
1. Do NOT leave your person alone with the examiner.
2. INSIST on watching and listening to the entire test from start
either quietly within view of the testing or from
a nearby room with a live camera screen with sound!
Not a 'recording'-- you must see and hear everything as it happens.
If your examiner can not arrange for your quiet monitoring AS THE TEST OCCURS,
find an examiner that is more professionally set up for this professional situation.

DO NOT TRUST AN EXAM IF YOU ARE NOT OFFERED TO COMPLETELY VIEW IT.
If you (the Client) are told that you will make the other person nervous,
or that you will not sit still, or that you will 'interfere': Laugh in their face!
To be told this would be an insult to you and to your intelligence.
Avoid the clowns.
Avoid the phonies.
INSIST on being able to LIVE (not recorded) monitor
the exam, or find another examiner who is professional!
Also be watching the polygraph computer screen the entire time the test occurs.
Before the test starts, the examiner should explain what
he/she (and you) should watch for on the wiggly lines above.
He/she will be watching the size of the 'green mountains'
(sweat / skin-conductance) on certain questions and comparing
those sizes to the 'green mountains' on the questions YOU wanted asked.
Same thing, comparing 'blue mountains'
(breathing changes) to 'blue mountains'.
(blood pressure)to 'red mountains'.
Although this is oversimplified, it give you the basic idea.
This is why polygraph is known as a 'comparison test'.
DON'T BE FOOLED!
You have choices:
RUN if an examiner does not allow the client
monitor the exam from start to finish!
