Pyschology Matters?

If the players were robots, you could just put them on a chosen setting and expect a constant performance from point to point, no matter what the context.

However, as human beings, things are probably a lot different.

Eg: If Jairo gets on a roll and plays his very best, he has a week that looks like "Bolivar of the early games".

But if he were playing in the lates against the top guys, he might never get out of the starting blocks.

Psychology-wise, does it make an impact on a player's attitude if his work experience is daily dominance, or a daily beat-down?

Kind of a silly question, since my long-lost souvenir booklet from Dania decades ago spells out that when a player is struggling, the PM will usually give him better spots until he gets his confidence back.

However, if that pattern has any validity, (it should) then clearly an 'observational handicapper' could anticipate and immediately ID it. But I wonder how well it would be captured by a ratings formula?
