Polygraphs - what could go wrong?

There are two possibilities for an inaccurate polygraph test result. The first possibility is if the polygraph indicates that the subject lied when he/she actually did not lie. This is known as a false positive. The second possibility is a polygraph that indicates the subject told the truth when he/she actually lied. This is known as a false negative.
