In the Positive Control Technique, examinees are presented with each question two times in succession as a set. Examinees are instructed to admit committing the offense under investigation after the first presentation of each question and deny it after the second reading of the same question. The first time the question is read, it is called the subjective lie question, while the second presentation is called the subjective truth question. See: Driscoll, Honts & Jones (1987); Gordon & Cochetti (1982); Howland (1981); Reali (1978).
