Traveler's Tell Defined: If you understand a "Tell in Poker," you can start to understand a Traveler's Tell.
Tell (poker) Defined: A tell in poker is a change in a player's behavior or demeanor that is claimed by some to give clues to that player's assessment of their hand. A player gains an advantage if they observe and understand the meaning of another player's tell, particularly if the tell is unconscious and reliable. Sometimes a player may fake a tell, hoping to induce their opponents to make poor judgments in response to the false tell. More often, people try to avoid giving out a tell, by maintaining a poker face regardless of how strong their hand is.
There are signs that tell you want you need to know.
Example: You want to know if the city is dangerous, then you look for the tell, the tell here would be bars on windows, many guards with guns, and less people talking to each other. The tell is the security measures you see.
Example: If you want to know if there is an Expat colony in a destination, try searching for used bookstores in English, that will tell you there is enough foreigners living in the city to be called an Expat colony.
