Full Scope Poly definition

I am a prior FBI employee and I have a upcoming interview with a DOD contractor. The position requires a "Full-Scope" polygraph. My question is: what is the definition of a "Full-Scope" poly v-s a "Lifestyle?'

I'm under the impression I had a FBI "Full" because I was prior Navy with a TS clearance. They asked me the normal drug/life questions during the poly, but they also asked if I ever gave away classified info while in the Navy?

Did I have a "Full-Scope?" Thanks!!

A full-scope polygraph examination includes relevant questions about lifestyle issues (typically drug use, crimes, and, in some cases, sexual behavior) that are not included in a counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination (wherein the relevant questions are limited to issues of espionage, sabotage, and terrorism).

In common parlance, the terms "full-scope" and "lifestyle" are are often used interchangably with regard to polygraph examinations.
