Hello. Could someone help me please?
What does "She scanned me with the laser accuracy of the socially astute" mean?

    It means she scrutinised him, looked at him from head to toe, and she did it with great accuracy normally possessed by people who are wise in social matters.

    Does that help any?

    "Social astuteness" seems to be what used to be called being "good with people".

    Here's one person's definition:

    Social Astuteness is measured by five factors 1) understanding people well 2) being good at sensing the motivations and hidden agendas of others 3) having good intuition or savvy about how to present myself to others 4) instinctively knowing the right things to say or do to influence others 5) paying close attention to people’s facial expressions

    Thank you for details.
