Poker Face (noun): an impassive expression that hides one's true feelings. Having a poker face is both a gift and a curse. While you can hide your thoughts and feelings from everyone else, a lot of people will think you're arrogant and unemotional. In a lot of circumstances, it is helpful because you want to hide how you're feeling. But on the odd occasion where you are opening up to others, they find it hard to believe because your facial expressions do not correspond to how you claim you're feeling.
No one ever knows what you're really thinking. You could be cursing someone or laughing at someone's stupidity. But no one can tell!
When you're nervous or angry, you can convince people that that's not the case.
