What is a Polygraph lie detector test?

The Polygraph is a re-active exam where the Subject’s physiological responses (reactions) to the stimuli (questions) are recorded and scored. The Subject will undergo a detailed interview and is connected to the polygraph components making this a more invasive exam than an EyeDetect. The Subject will listen to a series of questions asked by the examiner. The Subject will answer either yes or no to each question. One, two, three or four relevant questions that directly relate to the issue will be asked on the exam depending upon the exam type. After the exam is over, the examiner manually grades the charts. Computer algorithms are available to aid in the grading of the charts but are not always reliable so manually grading is still required.  Polygraph test formats we use have anywhere from a 80% – 93% accuracy rate depending upon the test type. The entire process takes about two hours. Polygraphs are ideal for both simple and complex issues.

What is an EyeDetect Lie Detector Test?

EyeDetect is non-invasive, pro-active lie detector test that scans the Subject’s eyes at a rate of 60 frames per second for changes in pupil dilations, blink rate, response times and more while the Subject reads and answers questions on a computer.  The Subject will be asked a variety of similar True or False questions about the exact same issue on the exam.  The exam is scored via an automated computer algorithm ensuring no room for human error or bias.  The entire process takes about one hour.  EyeDetect is ideal for single issue exams.  EyeDetect has a 90% accuracy for single issue exams and an 86% accuracy rate for pre-employment/screening exams.  Due to it’s lower cost, high accuracy rates and non-invasive nature most people prefer to start with an EyeDetect test and if needed, then do a polygraph test.

How do you know what to ask on the exam?

The examiner will determine what questions to ask on the exam by using the information gathered from  your case file questionnaires and the interview. Prior to the exam date a questionnaire will be emailed to both the Subject and the Victim/Accuser asking them to outline their side of the story. Within the questionnaire, you can share with us what questions, comments or concerns  you have. You can also provide any evidence you may have. Your questionnaire must be submitted back to us for review no later than 24 hours prior to your exam date. On the day of the exam, we will do an interview with the Subject prior to taking the test to go over the facts of the case. Based off the information gathered from the interview and the questionnaires, the examiner will determine what questions will be asked on the exam.

What can’t you test for?

We can only test FACTS that the Subject has a reasonable expectation of knowledge and recall. Maryland polygraphs and EyeDetect tests cannot test intangibles such as feelings, thoughts,  fantasies, or future intentions.  Lie detector tests can’t ask hypothetical questions or ask about how their actions could effect someone else’s feelings.   It’s important to understand that most people don’t remember minor details such as every website they’ve been to, every person they’ve flirted with or every lie they’ve ever told.  A polygraph or EyeDetect lie detector test in MD cannot clarify every minor detail but they can give you a solid “yes/no” or “true/false” answer to one large overall issue. All lie detector tests are limited on the amount of questions they can ask. Therefore, it’s very important to focus on the largest, most important issue only.

How does an EyeDetect Lie Detector Test Work?

Do you do therapeutic, CSAT, ASAT or Full Disclosure Exams?

YES! About 25% of our clients are currently in some form of therapy or recovery program for infidelity, sex addiction or other addictive behavior.  These therapeutic examinations are non-accusatory, non-judgmental and we do not discuss sexual acts in detail.  It is our goal to get you successfully through the exam process and then share the results with your therapy team so that they can move in your recovery program.

Can other people be in the room during the exam?

Only the Subject (the person taking the exam) and the Maryland polygraph may be present during the exam. This is an APA standard which you will find nationwide and is not negotiable.  In some cases, for an additional fee, a remote viewing via a secure HIPAA compliant online video conference may be available. However, this is rare and is usually limited to CSAT, ASAT & other therapist to monitor their patients exams. The fee for this service is $99 per exam.

When will I get my results?

The Subject will get verbal results within about 10-15 minutes after the exam as well as a very simple “Same Day Results” report.  Within 10 business days, the Subject will receive a detailed polygraph report detailing the questions asked and the Maryland polygraph exam results.

How many questions will you ask?

We only conduct specific issue / single issue exams as those are the most accurate types of exams. On an EyeDetect, we will ask one (1) relevant question in a variety of a different ways. On a polygraph exam, we will ask anywhere from 2 – 4 relevant questions, all of which will directly relate to the same, specific issue.
