re: How important is a handshake?

I always give a solid handshake. What freaks me out the most is the people (especially older) who keep holding on to the handshake. I met our new department head the other day and after introducing myself the handshake went on for another 30 seconds while the conversation continued. Wasn't sure how break it so I just tried to slowly reduce the squeeze pressure until he finally pulled away.

Very important. If you can't do this, I don't want you around.

I have an older neighbor who does this. He'll start asking me questions like how I'm doing and stuff at the start of the handshake, and he won't let go until after I'm done answering his questions. He's a pleasant guy, but that is kind of wierd.

It is important. I notice it. It does affect my intial perception of the person with out a doubt.

I make decisions that influence large amounts of revenue stream direction... it is important.

re: How important is a handshake?
I always grip the shite out of people's hands, look them in the eyeballs and give a firm shake. Womenz and menz. I have gotten some very surprised looks from some menz. I teach my 5 year old to do the same. They go over it with the kids in karate also. Super important IMHO.

I also make the 5 year old hold doors open for me. I will stop and wait until he walks in front of me and gets it. He does it now without prompting, and will run I front of old peoplez and womenz to do the same.

Honestly, handshake is something lower level and young people worry about.

In the real world no one gives a rats fricking ass.

A weak handshake says WORLDS about you.

A firm one is just a good first step.

I always try to go in strong because there is nothing worse than a failed handshake.

Also, F you people who squeeze too early.
