Lie Detector Results
Lie Detector Results
When you’re taking a Lie Detector have you considered what the results may be and how they are delivered to each client?
The results can be one of three and depending on the type of test they are reported differently however the consumer is looking for either a Pass or a Fail when the Lie Detector results are given. The third result is not one we see very often, when using the latest techniques and equipment we have a four percent chance of seeing an Inconclusive result, this means the scores aren’t sufficient to either pass or fail someone. An inconclusive result does not mean the person has done what they have been accused of, however what it does mean is we are unable to clear them either.
A Polygraph Examiner may refer to the results as No Deception Indicated (NDI) which is a Pass, or Deception Indicated (DI) which is a Fail. Depending on the type of test you could also see No Significant Reaction (NSR) which is a Pass or Significant Reaction (SR) which is a Fail.
A single issue Polygraph test conducted by a qualified American Polygraph Association examiner using the latest equipment and techniques will achieve accuracy levels of between 92% and 95%. We prefer not to run multi issue tests as we lose a significant amount of accuracy, a multi issue test would comprise of three questions that are not linked to the same issue.
In most situations the Polygraph Examiner will deliver the results at the end of the test, usually after four Polygraph charts have been run. The Examiner will need sufficient time to analyse the results and draw an opinion. They will also provide a full written report with the results and should run through this with you. If a client does fail a Polygraph Test we like the chance to speak to them to try and find out why they are failing. However, during the pre-test, we ask lots of questions to ensure there is no reason a client would fail unless they are coming to lie on a Polygraph test which would show up in the results.
