Statistics show that, on average, every person lies 2.5 times a day. You are currently being exposed to people who, on a daily basis, are trying to take advantage of you by various forms of underhandedness and/or blatant criminal behaviour.
Who is lying to you? Your new business partner, your accountant, the person applying for that key position or someone in your private life… the list of possibilities is endless. Your choices are nearly always based on the credibility of the information handed to you and the accuracy thereof is vital. In short, the truth is an inherent requirement of any decision making process. Enter the polygraph examination.
