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 the, high accuracy rates and non-invasive nature most people prefer to start with an EyeDetect test and if needed, then do a polygraph test.
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?
Both parties are encouraged to attend the appointment and participate in the pre-exam interview. However, during the actual exam portion, only the Subject (the person taking the exam) and the Maryland polygraph may be present during the exam. The other party will have to remain in the waiting room while the actual exam is being conducted. This is an APA standard which you will find nationwide with all reputable examiners.
How and when will I get my results?
The Subject, as well as any other authorized party, will receive an email with an attached typed polygraph report from the examiner detailing the questions asked, the answers to the questions and the Maryland polygraph exam results the same day of the appointment. This report is usually emailed out within a couple of hours after the exam. For safety reasons, we do not give verbal results in-person, in a group setting. This means, the Subject may leave our office without knowing the official results. This is not a reflection of the Subject or the exam findings. This is done for safety and security reasons only.
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 cover one (1) topic where questions are asked in a variety of a different ways. On a polygraph exam, we will ask a maximum of 4 relevant questions, all of which will directly relate to the same, specific issue. We do not conduct multi-issue polygraph exams due to their high inaccuracies rates. For the most questions as the best value, we recommend you do both a polygraph and an EyeDetect test.
