How to cheat a polygraph?

How to cheat a polygraph? I clarify that the lie detector cannot read your thoughts and thus find out whether you are homosexual or not. It registers only the psycho-physiological state of the subject at a certain moment. And that means that he, like any other car, can be deceived, his brains can be killed so that he cannot give an exact answer. There are three main ways. Their detailed description you can easily find on the Internet. The first is to try to reduce the sensitivity of our own sensory analyzers. To do this, on the eve it will be enough to drink some alcohol. The next day, the person becomes weakly sensitive, his reactions, conditionally speaking, are “inhibited” and he cannot react objectively to the presented stimuli. Lie detector will not be able to make unambiguous conclusions.

Another approach is to suppress all emotions, so that not a single stimulus will cause a reaction. The basic principle here is that a person tries to answer all questions automatically, without paying serious attention to them. He must focus on a wall drawing that is in front of him, or on some other neutral object or a memory from his life experience. This method requires the ability to self-concentration.

However , feigned emotional reactions to insignificant stimuli are much more effective. If you want to provoke a reaction to the question you need, try to simply multiply a few multi-digit numbers in your mind or think about something that causes fury or sexual emotion. For example, if you do not want to be caught in homosexuality, it is necessary to multiply numbers in your mind when you are asked whether you prefer women. And if there is an inverse problem, i.e. You must pretend to be a homosexual who you are not (for example, in order to get rid of the army :) ), then you need to multiply by hearing the question "Do you prefer to have sex with people of your gender", etc. As an option: when you are asked about women, at this moment you present or recall sex scenes with men (or vice versa). Thus , the sexual reaction to the pictures from your imagination “overlaps” with the question being asked and it seems that this particular question has caused such a reaction. With a certain impressionability and willpower, this method works. The result can also be achieved if you start reading verses. About myself, of course. Something long, like "Eugene Onegin". Worrying for the main character and answering questions as if in between times.

Physiological reactions characteristic of psychological stress also cause pain. Therefore, some have thought to put a button under the thumb in the shoe: pain when pressed on it should cause a "fake reaction". There are many different ways to create fake reactions, one of which is the imperceptible stress of some muscle groups for an expert. Usually, people press their toes to the floor, reduce their eyes to the nose, or press their tongues to the hard palate. The thing is to hide this movement from the interrogator . I warn you that such methods can only be deceived by an un experienced expert; they are well known to an experienced professional. Therefore, this case should be carefully. By the way, it is most difficult to expose the inner, mental tricks. If you use them at the right moments, you can lead the expert to erroneous conclusions.

I recommend to connoisseurs of English to visit the site of committed fighters with a polygraph Antipoligraf.org . The credo of this site impresses me a lot. In the free translation into Russian, it sounds like this: "Their right is to try to find out all about us, our right is to send them all to ... This is democracy." This site presents a curious work "The Lie Behind the Lie Detector". In it, the opponents of the detectors offer their own methods of dealing with "unscientific methods of testifying, designed for idiots and working only in a lawless country."

These recommendations are applicable to the classic barking detector, which records pressure fluctuations, respiratory rate, blinks, contractions of the heart muscle, electrical activity of the skin, brain activity, involuntary movements of the arms and legs. For example, when the device is connected to the body, first of all it is recommended to pay attention to even breathing. Its frequency can vary from 15 to 30 breaths per minute (this is approximately 2-4 seconds).

It is believed that rapid or slow breathing indicates that a person is lying. In addition, it is known that after a "dangerous" question, there should be a "sigh of relief", therefore, breathing should be monitored until complete "disconnection" from the wires by which you are connected.

In order to trick blood pressure sensors, enthusiasts advise between the polygraph examiner to do the following exercise: squeeze the muscles of the anal sphincter and bite the tip of the tongue. It is necessary to squeeze the muscles so that the legs and buttocks do not move, as in the modern models of detectors sensors are installed to the seats, indicating the slightest fidgeting on the chair and ankles shaking.

Techniques similar to those listed above can be applied not only when checking with a lie detector, but also during a normal conversation, for example, with a psychologist. After all, an expert psychologist will also closely monitor your reaction to his questions in order to find out if you are telling the truth.

And lastly I cite the original method of dealing with a polygraph, sent by our reader.

A little thought, I decided to write a few words about the polygraph ... If you will allow ... I do not think that in connection with my problem I will have to undergo such a test ... But still ...

The fact is that you can deceive the polygraph in the ways you propose ... But for this you need to be a very prepared person. The committee prepared people for this, umm ... well, for a very long time. After the failure of the Stasi agents, if sclerosis does not change me in the 60th or 61st year. I mean the methods of replacing questions or (especially !!!) the suppression of emotions. The button method is good, but ... With modern testing, sensors under the chair legs are enclosed. And every movement will be instantly detected and will be interpreted not in your favor. As well as muscle contraction.

Pressing the tongue to the sky, biting the tongue is quickly determined by the appearance of any, even not very experienced, expert who during testing will not look at the tape at all - why, it will still be recorded automatically, well, or on the monitor screen, and you will look at face, revealing additional, NOT psychophysiological reactions, especially eye movement. Come with a hangover - good. It is also good to come JUST by drinking some alcohol. You can NOT alcohol. You can coffee cups 7-10. It is possible and other drugs, such as tranquilizers. But again, with SERIOUS testing, you will definitely be given a blood and / or urine test. What all your tricks will calculate. Which again will be interpreted NOT in your favor. Not to mention that testing can simply be postponed. In addition, all this affects the pulse rate. And it is NECESSARY measured when testing on a polygraph. And an increased number of heartbeats per minute can also be interpreted AGAINST you.

And absolutely all these methods are not applicable if you are being tested from CAMERA. But the method that I allow myself to offer in many ways from all these shortcomings is free , tried (do not ask where!) And showed good results. With this method, too, need to drink. But only water. And in large quantities. Everyone knows about how much he needs to drink in order to go to the toilet ... well, he really wanted to. How long to drink ... You can try to calculate it so that you don’t have much to do with preliminary, "sighting" questions. And this is about the first 10-30 minutes.

But even if they didn’t calculate it, all the same, you can force yourself on “sighting” questions not to think about what you want to use in the toilet, to relax as much as possible ... Well, in general, everyone has their own ways of dealing with themselves in such cases. But then ... Maximum focus on your bladder, which swells, swells, which is now bursting, to think only about what you want to piss, unbearably want to piss, no more strength, no more strength to think about anything except that I want PI-PI !!!
