Agreed. If there was an easy trick to figuring it out then nobody would fall for feints and they'd be completely useless, which is obviously not the case.

Maybe you could talk to your coach or more experienced guys at the gym and have them spar a few rounds with you every session for a while, focusing on different kinds of feints so you can be exposed to them and start to learn what to look for and how to properly react to them. It's an experience thing so the sooner you're exposed to them the better IMO, and it'll keep you from developing your own, potentially bad, habits and reactions to feints.
