Do you have a pokerface?

I don’t – in fact, I have real trouble hiding my feeling like disgust, joy, worry, annoyance etc.

If I were to play poker (I don’t for this very reason) – you would be able to read my hand by looking at my face. I would have a huge grin with a good hand, anda look of concern with a bad one.

This prevents me from playing poker but also hurts me in face to face negotiations either professionally or when it comes to my personal affairs.

For example, if I want to play hardball with a vendor, plumber, cable company etc., I am much better suited to do this over the phone. Luckily for personal finances issues most such conversations happen over the phone anyway.

How about you – do you have a poker face? If yes, how do you use it?
