    Default Polygraphs

    I saw this on DT today: All antinarcotics agents to undergo polygraph tests

    It got me wondering: how legal and prevalent are polygraphs in the DR?

    Polygraph testing is less prevalent in thr DR due to the high numbers of pathological liars in the population. A pathologic liar compulsively tells lies without even realizing he is doing so. His lying fails to evoke the physiological responses a polygraph vtests for such as increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, irregular respiration or increased perspiration. Botton line, Dominican can tell a lie without a second thought. Or at least enough Dominicans can to invalidate polygraphs.

    Allow me to chime in on this pertinent question.

    Dominicans are great liars. The best in the world. I'm Dominican/Ohion. My father was the world heavy-weight champion of Dominican liars. From growing up with him I learned the pantomime. There are seventeen different things a guy can do when he lies to give himself away. A guys got seventeen pantomimes. A woman's got one hundred and twenty, but that's another story. A "normal" guy's got seventeen... but, if you know them, like you know your own face, they beat lie detectors all to hell. Now, what we got here on this little island in the caribbean is a little game of show and tell. When Domincians are lying, they don't wanna show you nothin'...oh yeah, we'll tell you everything you want to hear, but when you see us moving our lips without pausing for oxygen intake, right there...right at that very instant, you should know for a fact that we're lying through our teeth.

    Now, I know you think you know what we know when we are lying, but that's laughable at best...nothing further could be from the truth. We don't even know when the hell we're lying. That's how good we are. We've taken lying to a whole new level. We don't even need oxygen when we lie. That's a fact.

    Now tell me...am i lying right now?

    One technique,used by "Mi Dominicana",is :Always answer a question,with a question.
    for example,"Did you see my wallet?..........."answer,"Where did you leave it?
    Wait till "Chipper" sees this thread!
    He's a "Platanado" in ONE respect!
