How do Polygraph Lie Tests Work?

Polygraph or lie detector test UK work by monitoring the subject’s physiological reactions to questions. The questions asked during a polygraph test are designed to elicit a physiological response that can be measured and interpreted by a trained examiner. The most common response measures used in polygraph testing are changes in heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration.

The professional examiners will ask the subject both relevant and control questions during the test. Testing consists of relevant questions are those that pertain to the issue under investigation. Control questions are used to create a baseline response that can be compared to the subject’s responses to the relevant questions.

The polygraph examination will interpret the subject’s responses to determine if they are being truthful or deceptive. A truthful person will generally have similar physiological responses to relevant and control questions, while a deceptive person will react differently to relevant and control questions.

There are a variety of techniques that can be used in polygraph testing. What your polygraph expert will choose to use may vary depending on the circumstances.

How could a Lie Detector help me?

I have trouble trusting my partner because I don’t think they are being honest.

Lie Detector Test

Recovering a relationship from a breakdown in trust is a struggle, taking years to rebuild. Once someone has shown they are capable of deceit, it can be hard to know when they are telling the truth. It leaves you to question your own judgment when you begin to trust them again. This is a normal response to protect yourself from further harm but can get in the way when you want your relationship back on track. If you have specific questions that need answering definitively, a lie detector test can help.

While it may seem drastic, polygraph examinations can offer peace of mind to both parties. By agreeing to a private lie detector test, a person shows they are willing to be questioned and give honest answers or face the consequences. We will gather your questions, and these will be asked by our licensed and accredited polygraph technicians at our testing facility. You will receive a report detailing the questions asked, the answers given and the measurements attributed to these answers.

Whether your partner lies during the test or not, these results offer certainty and confidence in your next decisions.

I want to prove to my family that I didn’t do something of which I have been accused of.

Lie Detector Test

When you are accused of something awful, your reputation suffers and your relationship with those closest to you can be deeply affected. Clearing your name can be difficult, especially in cases where evidence is hard to gather. While polygraph testing is often viewed as a way to catch people in their own dishonesty, they are used to prove an individual trustworthy. By asking specific questions about an event or action during a test, our trained technicians can monitor your physiological stress symptoms and create a report to show the honesty of your answers with a scientific method. If no answers are flagged as dishonest, your report will prove to your family that you are telling the truth about your actions.

We know something was stolen but we can’t prove who it was.

Lie Detector Test

In cases where you have multiple suspects and little evidence, it can be hard to see beyond hearsay and blame to find the truth of the matter. A lie detector test, while often relegated to the realms of spy movies, provides an objective, scientific method of uncovering dishonesty.

In a case like this, our practitioners would ask questions around the details of the theft, such as asking how much money was taken or how they opened the safe. This would enable them to observe whether or not the subject exhibits stress symptoms when asked about details only the thief would know. It might be that a practiced thief is also a practiced liar, so it is important to ask questions from multiple angles to see if their answers change or a particular formulation gives them away.

We would provide a report for each test, detailing the questions asked and answers given, and any answers flagged as causing high levels of stress to the subject, indicating a lie. These reports can give you the confidence to begin a criminal case or employment tribunal.
