An action performed by extremely intelligent people or highly trained (typically government) operatives, in which one figures out someone’s personality, traits, interests, past, future, and general backstory based on the studying of their face.

This action can be seen executed in magnitudes of movies and even books. It supposedly has been a known tactic since before recorded history.
Excerpt from The Office:

Dwight: What makes you feel qualified to judge a place after a mere interview? Robert stares at Dwight What are you doing..? Dwight sits up abruptly Stop trying to figure me out.

Robert: I just did.

Dwight: You can’t.

Robert: It’s done.

Dwight: No, it’s not.

Robert: I know you now, your nature. I'm done. Not worth continuing. at the same time, Dwight says: You don't know me! Anything about me! Get out of my head!

This is a prime example of “figuring-someone-out.”

The only "Secret" you'll ever need. Life isn't fair. Shit happens. You DO have the power to create your life and change your destiny, but not by wishing for it. It may take blood, sweat or tears. And sometimes booze at 8 am. Nobody's judging. Just figure your shit out.
