Mini-Trim Pot: How to tell setting?

If the top of the adjustment screw "+" on a mini-trim pot is not marked, how can you tell the setting?

Meaning, as in the example above ("+"), is the trim pot set at 12 o'clock? or 3 o'clock? or 6 o'clock? or 9 o'clock?

Sorry if I am not clear.

it is usually hard to tell, but when I have wondered the same thing, I usually take note of where it is, then turn it the whole way each direction to tell its range and what effect it has, then find the sweet spot.

This, though a lot of trim pots have markings to make the + into an arrow.
It can be really subtle:
