kanya this type of testing is often used by big corporations when considering applicants for a certain job or doing internal investigations on staff the police military private investigators security

when a new video pops up on the bright side of life so how does a polygraph work well the first lie detector was invented in 1906 by a cardiologist named Sir James McKenzie after a few years of fine-tuning the technology he created was developed enough to introduce to the world the polygraph machine that we know to this day in 1992 the lie detector was computerized which greatly contributed to its effectiveness and accuracy of course a polygraph can't really detect the lie itself it only captures physiological changes that occur in the body when a person is lying these changes can include a fast pulse sweating unusual breathing and my blood pressure modern lie detectors can recognize up to 50 different types of reactions down to the expansion of the tiny capillaries throughout your body still most companies use results based on a standard set of reactions experts say that interpreting the results is more of an art rather than a science and that's because the result heavily depend on the qualifications and experience of a polygraph examiner their task is to select the right questions to match each personality to take into account the differences in people's physiology and to be able to interpret them correctly if a truly qualified professional is examining you during a lie-detector test the accuracy reaches up to 98% as for the test itself it's nothing like what you see on the big screen you know the criminal is all wired up while the detective screams at him and dramatically pounds his fists on the table in a passionate desire for truth and justice now the reality is that testing somebody with the help of a lie detector takes long hours and it's done in a very calm environment the questions are specific precise and really well structured anyway let's say there are certain things you wouldn't like to share with your potential employer in this case despite the precision of modern polygraph machines you can prepare yourself for the test and advance so here are six ways to prepare for a polygraph test number one be physically ready get ready 24 hours before the test so that your body is in tip-top shape get a good night's sleep make it at least eight hours don't skip any meals before the test you don't want to be hungry during it don't overstuff yourself full of food right before it either take your usual medicines wear comfortable clothing now as you can see comfort is key stick to your usual regimen so that your body doesn't feel any unusual changes this will help keep your heartbeat from going awry do you usually jog in the morning don't skip it can't go without your morning coffee well don't go without it today either number two let yourself feel nervous most of the time when people are lying their heart literally races they start to pant their blood pressure skyrockets and they sweat profusely but these physiological reactions are also typical for situations when you feel anxious feeling nervous before or during a lie-detector test is absolutely normal plus it can even help you pass the test the results of people who feel anxious while answering each question turn out to be the most accurate according to statistics if you feel that your results might be interpreted incorrectly because of your nervousness then the following method might help to check your basic physiological reactions you'll be asked some controlled questions it's pretty easy to distinguish them from the relevant questions because they're usually more general in nature be especially attentive at this stage if you make yourself nervous while answering the controlled questions then later on the polygraph will interpret your answers to the relevant questions as truthful especially if you try to keep calm when answering them an example of a controlled question is have you ever stolen anything as for a relevant question did you ever steal anything at your previous place of employment so how exactly can you make yourself feel anxious on a dime well try thinking about something unpleasant or scary or you can always bring to mind the most embarrassing day of your life if that doesn't get your heart racing then you must have nerves of steel number three try not to lie about details if you've got nothing to hide or be embarrassed about try to answer all of the questions honestly the more truthful things you say the more precise the results will be people tend to lie about small stuff because they don't take the details very seriously examinees are too worried about being asked trap
