That is a good representation of Poecilotheria rufilata...my big female is just as laid back as she was.
Poecilotheria aggressiveness/defensiveness is really hyped up too much. For all of you that are scared of getting them...you shouldn't be. They're fast, but not "aggressive".
And if you have a Pternochilus murinus in your collection, then you have a T with some of the strongest venom in Theraphosidae.

nice new setup,nice pokie aswell, my female is not aggressive,but she is very skittish,when she is out of her hide(at night) any sudden vibrations,little draft sends her taking off really fast,great spiders never the less.

That's one very laid back girl! I've never seen a T soo calm even with the brush touching, she cooperated 100%. :D
