We are worldwide in 76 countries! 

On this exclusive explosive episode of Light ‘Em Up - we’re talking ALL THINGS about the polygraph exam - that’s right, the lie detector test!  

“In God we trust, all others we Polygraph” … 

A polygraph, also referred to as a lie detector test, is an instrument that measures and records several physiological indicators such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while a person is asked and answers a series of questions. 

Its use is ever-expanding, and has readily been seen in pre-employment screening, the criminal justice system and issues involving national security.  
We have the high honor and distinct privilege of speaking with our special guest Holly Niotti Soltesz, founder/owner of HNS Polygraph Services (Youngstown, OH and Cranberry Township, PA).

Established in 2008, HNS Polygraph has been retained by law enforcement agencies, district attorneys, defense attorneys, therapists, private individuals and city and county officials to conduct polygraph testing when the truth is absolutely needed.  HNS Polygraph Services is a veteran-owned business that strictly adheres to all standards of polygraph set forth by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), The American Polygraph Association (APA) and The International Society of Polygraph Examiners or (ISOPE).

The primary role of a polygraph examiner is to assess and ascertain the truth of one statement or the validity of a denial regarding any allegation made against a person. The expert polygraph examiner, through their passion to the science and their commitment to excellence, tries their level best to get to the truth.  

Holly’s primary area of expertise is sexually-based allegations of statutory rape, gross sexual imposition, child pornography and child sexual assault and infidelity matters. 

On this explosive episode we drill to the core on: 

💥 What exactly a polygraph examiner does? 

💥 Empirical evidence about how deceptiveness—and other psychological conditions—affect the physiological responses that the polygraph measures.

💥Why do we lie, and what in fact is “truth”?

💥Why do people submit themselves for polygraph exams when they know they are lying ? 

💥 We examine the difference between a “specific issue exam” and a “multi-issue exam”. 

💥 We share examples of baseline questions that would be asked at the start of an examination.

💥 How does a lay person know if they’re being examined by a properly trained and competent forensic psycho-physiology expert? 

💥Overt “signs and signals of deception”  

Holly says, “There are some really good liars out there and equally, the opposite is true, there are some truthful people that really look deceptive.” 

💥 Can a lie detector test be “beaten”? 

Holly shares with us explosive revelations of what the current trend is which in many occurrences has necessitated a polygraph exam to be conducted in the hope of ascertaining the truth of the allegations lodged against far too many parents - very, serious stuff, all in the pursuit of justice.    

And so much more!  

A lie-detector test, a polygraph exam, or a psychophysiology veracity exam – regardless of how it is referred to, it works!

Holly clearly understands the gravity of the matter: “This is someone’s life that we hold in our hands – their life and liberty stand in the balance.”  

You will not want to miss this episode!  

If you have ever lied, or know someone who has lied, or is a liar, this episode is for YOU! 

It is my most sincere prayer that this episode is educational and empowering for you! 

Thank you so much for all of your on-going support!
