George Maschke on How to Beat a Polygraph Test’s George Maschke speaks with Nick Frost about how to fool a polygraph (lie detector) test in episode 5 of the tongue-in-cheek 2003 television series Danger: Incoming Attack. Note that the anal sphincter contraction, discussed as a polygraph countermeasure, while effective, is no longer recommended by, and alternative techniques such as mental countermeasures or tongue-biting are to be preferred. Note also that in his summary, host Nick Frost incorrectly characterizes the anal sphincter contraction as squeezing one’s buttocks (which was and remains to be avoided). Note also that polygrapher Bruce Burgess purports to know that “someone is messing around” based on the fact that Nick’s chart showed reactions to both relevant and control questions. This is utter nonsense, however. Indeed, the polygraph “control question test” was developed in response to the realization that even innocent people might well react to accusatory relevant questions. The way one passes the “test” is to show stronger reactions to the control questions than to the relevant questions, and it is to be expected that a truthful person might show reactions to both kinds of questions.

    he didnt fail the lie detector test, he failed after the lie detector, what the examiner did after the test was make it seem as though he knew that he was lying by telling him bullshit, this is just a tactic examiners will use to try and get a confession, if he didnt confess the examiner wouldnt have known he was lying and nothing can be done using those results to prove anything
