Is Lie Detector Testing a Reliable Way of Uncovering the Truth?
In a world where deception and dishonesty are much more prevalent than we’d like to admit, honesty has become an invaluable commodity. But how do you tell the truth from the lies? When a web of deceit has been spun, unravelling it could prove to be tricky. This is especially true in work environments where there are lots at stake and futures depend on hiding the truth. It is times like this when lie detector testing can be of immense help to detect deception and to verify the truth.
Lie Detector Testing Can Be a Powerful Tool in the Right HandsWhile lie detector testing won’t necessarily uncover the truth, it is a very accurate method to support evidence and eliminate suspects by either verifying true statements or detecting when a person is lying. As such, it is an incredibly useful tool to save you effort and time, as well as money.
Similarly, it’s also useful to verify someone’s innocence when they’ve been falsely accused of wrongdoing, thus providing a way to help them restore their reputation.
However, for lie detector testing to be accurate and useful, it needs to be conducted by the right person and using the correct methods.
Be wary of lie detector testing if the examiner:
- Is not affiliated with any regulatory bodies – Industry regulators such as the National Polygraph Association exist to monitor and maintain industry standards to ensure reliable results.
- Use the Voice Stress method – Users of the Voice Stress method report a high number of false positives and false negatives, and no independent studies exist to verify this as a reliable method of detecting deception or verifying the truth.
- Promises instant results – This is not the movies; don’t expect an instant printout with a “true” or “false” statement. The process requires sensitivity, focus and special skills, so be sceptical when an examination takes 60 minutes or less, or when an examiner claims that their method is 100% accurate.
