The study of facial expressions is fascinating. I played some poker over the week at a casino, and finished up $38 on a $60 max buy in table. My two biggest plays were off of tells, basically just observing this players actions and being aggressive when I saw weakness. It was a BLAST. I've been paying more and more attention to people's facial expressions, including those of the people I am talking to, and it results in seeing a lot more of their true beliefs and personalities. For example, I was talking to someone over this last weekend about what they implemented in to their business and how much of it was from reading things, and they made a curious facial expression. I'm not sure what it meant. Other times I saw expressions come up when talking to person B, and the results were interesting.
Also I noted that Carmelo Anthony did not really like the whole Jeremy Lin/Linsanity phenomenon when this was happening.
There is tension there on that team. It won't end well.
