TRUST

would you trust the POLYGRAPH TEST to be Truthful if your husband took one.  I'm watching Dr Phil and a guy took a polygraph to see if he was cheating.  The test said he was lying but he says the polygraph was wrong.

don't think so buddy!

Polygraphs are inadmissable in court because they are unreliable. Even if you are innocent, you being nervous could botch the results. I still watch Maury, though..lol.

I can tell you for fact that polygraphs are bogus. If you're tired, if you hadn't eaten for the day if your kids have stressed you out, if you're having a bad hair day, the polygraphs can say you're lying even if you're not.

Actually I would never trust a polygraph...they are based on flawed science.

Some people can beat it, it picks up everything.  I would not trust it.

Yeah, I actually would trust a Polygraph test. Those tests seem to be pretty accurate.

When it come to those tests,I think it just depends on the person,because as 1 mom said,some know how to beat it.But if my husband took 1,I would trust his word before the machine.
