5. Finally, my biggest tell is the “lottery question.” I’m usually introduced as a lottery expert, and I ask people what they would do if they won the lottery. Those who have a well thought out vision, such as educating their children, buying property or giving back to society will do well when they have a smaller sum. Not having a vision is a major league “tell.”
As the song says, “You’ve got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away and know when to run.” Looking for “tells” is a good way to find out which work best.
