According to Science, These are The Most Successful Poker Player Personalities

Written By: Samantha A. | October 15, 2014 | Posted In Poker News

When it comes to being successful in poker, you might need a certain type of personality in order to win the game. This is something that is able to provide you with an idea of whether or not you’d be good at the game of skill, or perhaps you would lose your hand to the other players around the table.

What the scientists have found about these types of personalities, is that the more emotionally stable you are – the better you’re going to be at playing, and winning the game of poker.

You have to do well under pressure, and you have to know how to read people, while staying unreadable yourself. This comes with being able to control your emotions, to hold back anything and to be level headed – no matter what the stakes are. This comes without saying for some people.

What Does Your Personality Say About You?

When it comes to who you are, you might already know but can you control the way you feel? Can you manipulate your emotions to show different signs that what you’re actually feeling in the moment?

By having stable emotions, you’re able to be in control throughout the entire game, and also kick some major butt at the table – which is why so many people that drop out of the game can be read, and they are not good at holding their emotion back during game play, thus, giving themselves away to the other players that can call them out and continue to play the game.

So many people are trying to up their skill at the card game, but they are just learning the cards. What they should really be learning – according to these scientists – is the art of mastering the emotions and being able to control each and every feeling that you have, especially while you’re at the poker table with the other players.

So how do you feel about this? What do you think your personality says about you and how you play the game of poker? Do you think you need skill or perhaps you need this personality trait, like the scientists are saying?
