Everyone knows that if you wanna be anybody in life, you've got to have a good handshake. Fuck going to school and getting a Masters Degree and all that bullshit. All you need is a good firm handshake. So, on a scale of 1-10, how firm is yours?
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

My handshake is so firm that it actually is a firm. I charge people for shaking my hand.

6 normally, it would be a 7-8 if most people didn't shake so damned weakly and I'm conditioned to think they're going to have a weak handshake.

Sometimes it's pretty bad because I'm my mind is on other things, but usually it's nice and firm.

People who do the "dead hand" handshake should just be ashamed of themselves. You know, those who just put their hand forward like a lump of dead meat and doesn't press back the slightest.

Agreed. It makes everything very ACKWARD from that point on.

I mean, why do they do it?!

Is it because they want me to check their pulse?

ARGH.

I do have a friend/peer that whenever I see him, we give each other a hand shake and it can almost be a competition.

Also, <- Handshake? amidoinitrite?

6 or 7.

I mostly shake hands with my clients. You have to be firm, yet soft.

Shaking hands is an art.

My handshake has exactly the same firmness as the person I'm shaking hands with; I imitate their firmness.

I usually aim for an 8, but if I sense a weak handshake in return I generally dial it down a bit, for the sake of not coming off as controlling

I'd say it is about a 7.

Definitely not bone-crushing, but easily firm enough to establish a presence.

My grandpa taught me when I was a young lad.

But what if the other guy is imitating your firmness too?

*head explodes*

Then it generally varies at random from 3-8. It's awkward.

over 9000. But since that wasn't an option, I was thinking I'd have to choose 7. But I was like "No way, that might be taken as a literal 7" so I choose 10.

6. My handshake isn't the strongest...

I am ashamed, upset, and in a neverending spiral of depression because of it...

If I'm just meeting someone for the first time, it'll be around 8, but at my high school hand shakes at around 3 or 4 for the duration of a short conversation have more or less replaced high-fives.
#35
I would say about 7 for me. But my boss at work - well, whenever he shakes my hand I feel like I should apply an ice pack to it afterwards.
I can't think of a signature.

If it's with an aquaintance or most guys in general, a 7. If it's with a pretty tough dude, and 8. If it's with a woman a 6.

6-8 is a good range.
