well im single, but lie detectors aren't so bad.
hell i have like 2 settings, i'm either completely calm or super anxiety filled. i doubt you could get an accurate or reliable lie detector results from me either way. either you'd see nothing, or you'd get crazy spikes for no reason. i mean theres a reason they're not admissible in court.what would probably happen is i would try that technique to fact out the lie detector test that you always see in movies, and on tv and all that. and then i'd start thinking "oh man is it working? i can't tell wtf, maybe im doing it wrong" and i'd be freaking out at that point so you could ask me anything and it'd probably look like a lie at that point.so yeah, i'll go witht he lie detector since i dont think you could get an accurate results from me.
Definitely the first.
Mostly because I don't have a girlfriend/wife (;____;)
but even if I did, they'd have to come up with the questions. I don't think anyone has ever suspected me of doing something so terrible that I would try to hide it from them.
There are some things that only I know, however, which I sincerely hope to never share with anyone, especially not my mom.
I don't have a girlfriend or wife, but even if I did this would be easy. A guaranteed half hour versus as long as it takes? Dear god the first option! That's not even fair. And in the first one I can still lie if I want, even though I don't really think I'd have much to lie about, whereas the second one seems to suggest that I have to tell the truth. Really this is a no brainer.
What if I had a boyfriend or a husband? Your question presupposes that I am either a heterosexual male or a homosexual female. Also, you don't account for me having killed my mother with boiling acid in 1973.
So, you know, take this more seriously please.
I'm assuming you're supposed to imagine you have a girlfriend or wife for this question if you don't have one (which I don't). With that in mind, I'd still pick option 1. I don't think my gf/wife would think of the right question to get me to tell some of the "terrible" shit I've done in my life.
The other option will make you say every little thing you've ever done. To your mother, no less. Nope. No thanks.
