Has no energy, there is no shake, no squeeze, not even a pinch, and it gives the feeling you are holding a dead fish instead of a hand. Indicates low self-esteem. It is commonly found amongst inmates and people with a very low sense of self.PowerPoint Presentation: Hand HugPowerPoint Presentation: The " handhug " is popular with politicians, as it can present them as being warm, friendly, trustworthy and honest. Involves covering the clenched hands with the remaining free hand, creating a sort of "cocoon."PowerPoint Presentation: The Bone CrusherPowerPoint Presentation: Shows overly aggressive personality types. Also used with less strength by individuals with a desire to dominate occasionally out of weakness or fear they will be dominated by others if they don’t do it. Is often performed by larger men that are trying to make up for smaller things and is also popular amongst politicians, lawyers, and other authoritative figures that think they have something to prove.PowerPoint Presentation: Queen’s FingertipsPowerPoint Presentation: A person who offers fingers, instead of his palm for making a handshake is said to be making a Queen’s handshake. This handshake indicates a sense of superiority. Commonly seen in men-womenPowerPoint Presentation: Keep BackPowerPoint Presentation: Used by the aggressive types. The purpose of this one is to keep you at a distance and away from their personal space as they might feel threatened, they will lean forward or balance on one foot to achieve needed distance.PowerPoint Presentation: It can also be common to find this type of handshake in people who were raised in country/rural areas as the personal space for people in such areas is much larger than the personal space needed for individuals raised in the crowded cities.PowerPoint Presentation: Yank and PullPowerPoint Presentation: This one is considered a power play, it’s when a person decides to grab your arm and pull you in close towards them and inside their territory/personal space.PowerPoint Presentation: Possible reasons: The person is insecure and needs you to be in their own territory in order to feel comfortable and safe. They come from a culture/city that requires smaller space needs. They want to take control and get you off balance, considered manipulative because they want things done a certain way.PowerPoint Presentation: It is a quick grasp and then a release that feels like your hand being shoved aside. This handshake is a statement of “it’s my turf and my agenda that matters, yours doesn’t.” Listen first to what the person wants before talking about your ideas for them. The Brush OffPowerPoint Presentation: Involves any use of a downward turned palm. A seemingly innocuous turn of the wrist, this handshake is more often than not an indication of superiority. It literally says, “I have more power than you.” The DominatorPowerPoint Presentation: Person’s thumb and fingers touch the palm of your hand. The person doing this may fear connecting at a deep level and may have challenges building relationships. Lobster ClawPowerPoint Presentation: Your hand is taken normally and then twisted under the other person’s. This is usually done aggressively. Hand WrestlerPowerPoint Presentation: No palm-to-palm contact. The other person’s palm is cupped, like a teacup. This handshake indicates that the person is hiding. Also could be shyness. TeacupPowerPoint Presentation: The UrbanPowerPoint Presentation: The “Urban” is popular amongst athletes and the younger generation. Has no place in the conference room. A slight elevation of the four fingers is all it takes to go from an appropriate business greeting to a disastrous ordeal.PowerPoint Presentation: The ShugPowerPoint Presentation: Half shake – half hug The “ Shug ” is incredibly flexible and versatile. It conveys masculinity with a touch of affection; it’s reserved but expressive; and it’s close but not uncomfortably close.PowerPoint Presentation: Also, a “ Shug ” can be premeditated or it can evolve from a proper handshake to the “Urban” to the “ Shug ”; truly versatile.PowerPoint Presentation: The SouthpawPowerPoint Presentation: Otherwise known as the “Lefty”, the “Southpaw” should be avoided at all costs. To shake someone’s hand with your left hand is considered uncouth and even an expression of disrespect in some countries.PowerPoint Presentation: The I’m Too Occupied Right NowPowerPoint Presentation: Seen in passing or hurried moments or feels obligated to extend his or her hand, the “I’m Too Occupied Right Now to Shake Your Hand Properly” handshake is the most difficult of all to execute.PowerPoint Presentation: The Fist BumpPowerPoint Presentation: Not a “handshake”, the “Fist Bump” is a form of haptics and has gained overwhelming popularity. Generally not acceptable in the workplace, but popular socially and in business world.PowerPoint Presentation: The Appropriate HandshakePowerPoint Presentation: Stand and extend your right hand straight out in front of your body, with your elbow slightly bent, and your thumb pointing to the ceiling. Lean forward slightly if there is room, but not so much that your faces are uncomfortably close.PowerPoint Presentation: Keep eye contact; do not glance down at the hand offered as you shake.PowerPoint Presentation: Keep a pleasant expression; not stiff or overeager.PowerPoint Presentation: Close your fingers around the other hand with your thumb resting to the side. Grip with a slight firmness (like a gentle squeeze) as you raise your hand slightly up and down for the “shake.”PowerPoint Presentation: Release the hand after 3-4 seconds.
