Relationship issues



Problems within relationships are one of the most common reasons for which a polygraph test is taken. With trust being an essential element of any relationship, the belief that your significant other has been cheating, lying, or hiding the truth about anything you consider unacceptable in a relationship, such as watching pornography or visiting certain online chat rooms, can destroy the relationship.

Relationship issues

Problems within relationships are one of the most common reasons for which a polygraph test is taken. With trust being an essential element of any relationship, the belief that your significant other has been cheating, lying, or hiding the truth about anything you consider unacceptable in a relationship, such as watching pornography or visiting certain online chat rooms, can destroy the relationship. It may seem that there is no good outcome to be found from such a situation, that you cannot continue in a relationship if you believe you have been hurt and betrayed. But it is also hard to finish the relationship if you have no certitude as to whether your suspicions are not just a product of your imagination. A polygraph examination provides an answer to this conundrum. A lie detector test will clear away the uncertainty troubling you and will help you move on in your personal life, or restore trust and feelings of security.

The procedure

A polygraph (or a lie detector) test measures and records a number of physiological reactions given by the person tested to specific questions. During the test, the examiner will attach a number of sensors to the examinee which measure and record their rate of breathing, their pulse and their blood pressure. When people lie, these physiological indicators show the stress the body feels as it attempts to cover up a lie. These indicators are recorded by the machine and the examiner will be able to draw conclusions from them.

On the day of the exam (or previously by phone or email), the examiner will agree with you and/or the person to be tested on the questions that will be asked. We require that you ask no more than 3-5 closed questions – questions to which the answer can only be yes or no. These questions will be part of a series of approximately 15 questions, with the remaining questions being about general, non-specific issues.

Questions to ask

To guarantee the credibility of the test, questions to be asked must fulfil a number of criteria. They can only refer to facts, events and true statements, not to beliefs, opinions or intentions They must be answerable with YES or NO, and it should take no longer than 15 seconds to read them.

Prior to the exam, the examiner will discuss your issue in great detail and clarify what you want to find out. They will then help you formulate the questions. The pre-exam discussion will take as long as necessary until you are perfectly satisfied with the prepared list of questions.

Here are some examples of commonly asked questions

  • Since the beginning of your relationship with your partner, have you engaged in a sexual intercourse with anyone else?
  • Since the beginning of your relationship with your partner, have you engaged in passionate kissing with anyone else?
  • Since the beginning of your relationship with your partner, have you had any form of contact with your ex-partner?
  • Have you ever engaged in any form of sexual contact with XXX?
  • Have you ever watched pornography?
  • Since the date on which you promised to your wife not to visit pornographic websites, have you watched any form of pornography?

Results

Within 15 minutes of the end of the examination you will receive a report detailing the results, as well as an audio and visual recording of the test itself. The examiner will then be available to discuss the results and to answer any questions you may have regarding the report.
