150 Embarrassing Questions That Can be Asked on Polygraph
Some of the most uncomfortable questions can come from the mouth of a polygraph expert.
But there’s no need for you to be a graduate of a polygraph school or have a lie detector machine with you just to put someone — a family member, friend or significant other — on the hot seat.
Asking some of the most embarrassing polygraph questions can be mortifying for both the enquirer and the respondent. Just about any cringe-worthy or compromising question answerable with a yes or no that can ever come out of an inquisitive mouth and can ever fall on a pair of unsuspecting ears can elicit laughs, gasps or awkward silences.
And making matters worse is the fact that the respondent can choose between yes and no only.
This means that his or her answer is wide open to the interpretation of everyone within earshot. Well, the unspeakable question’s blushing recipient can always give an explanation before others can formulate their very own outrageous conclusions and set them in stone, too.
But while unleashing embarrassing yes or no questions can be thrilling and exhilarating, it’s of utmost importance to know your audience. Otherwise, you might end up on the receiving end of a slap in the face!
Instead of the respondent, it’s the enquirer that could wind up self-conscious if the question is asked to the wrong person, at the wrong place and at the wrong time. So, before you give up taming your curiosity and throw a question too uncomfortable to answer just like a polygraph examiner, make sure that the person can handle it.

And speaking of which, embarrassing questions are best asked if there’s a lie detector machine around. It doesn’t have to be the real deal — it can be a toy that randomly determines whether someone is lying or not.
With the device contradicting the answer of the individual whose face is probably burning, even more giggles or guffaws or gulps or shrieks are likely to fill the room. But life won’t feel complete, satisfying and fair for everyone around without the enquirer getting his or her turn to answer some horrifying questions!
In this post, I will share with you some embarrassing questions you can ask or be asked.
Just make sure that you and your “victims” are both willing to play the game so that you will come up as the hero who saves everyone from boredom rather than a sicko!
