How to Prepare for Polygraph Testing
Undergoing polygraph testing can usually be quite stressful. This is because more often than not the test may more look like a cross-examination. Candidates are scared of the result and fear that they will be unfairly blamed for something they have not done. The best way to beat the nerves is to prepare properly, then you can take the test with a peace of mind.
It is not advised to ask other people about lie detection examinations that they have already taken. The questions raised during the examination are not quite worth your while for researching. In many circumstances, the examiner will show you the questions he wants to ask. Try to relax before the questioning starts and listen carefully to each question.
Usually, polygraph testing goes on for about 1 to 1.5 hours, but in some cases, the testing can take longer than expected. This is frequently related to the complexity of the case as well as the number of people involved.
It is essential to dress comfortably and stay relaxed. Also, remember not to be late for a test. Not only is it well received if you arrive on time, but it will also give you the opportunity to relax before the questioning starts.
The absolute most critical thing to do is to get a good night sleep. This will enable you to provide answers swiftly and accurately. When approaching the test well-rested, it will be easier for you to calm down beforehand while making sure you approach the examination in a fit and relaxed atmosphere.
