Initial tells

F-train makes some comments about predicting the behavior of a stranger based on initial physical observations. He uses an example of people getting into an elevator. He says he can pretty well predict whether they are the type that will stare at the floor, stare at the numbers on the screen, etc. based on their general physical appearance.

Of course, he makes the extension that such initial impressions can be useful in making initial catogorizations of poker players also. He made some good observations about people. The post is well worth reading. His observations are more people specific than poker specific. But that's really what reading people is all about.

He's talking about some characteristics that were discussed rather extensively in
Caro's Book of Poker Tells
