What is your opinion on hanshakes? Some people offer very 'firm' handshakes i noticed, as if to prove something and this is not good.
Perhaps on your way home, someone will pass you in the dark, and you will never know it, for they will be from outer space.

Poll shall be up soon.

handshakes should be firm ive shook some hands and they dont even grip they just slide it in and out as if they dont really give a damn, yet they offered the shake, the ****s up with that?

some guys almost broke my hand though thats a dick move

Firm whilst looking them in eye.

No need to try and crush their hand though.

Limp handshakes are pointless and rude.

Firm and sincere and say your name while looking them in the eyes.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Remind me to never shake your hand. I may have to get the bones set and a cast if I ever do...

Firm handshakes = confidence, assertiveness, positivity

I wouldn't trust or do business with someone who can't even shake your hand properly.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I don't like shaking people's hands, it's not that I'm a germophobe or anything like that...
...I just like it when people raise their arm to shake my hand and I just stare at them like they've insulted me.

Depends, are you a fish or a giant?

If you say you're a giant, we'll know you're insecure.

I think it's just a formality at this point, but having someone's hand go limp during a handshake is almost as annoying as having to shake hands with 'that guy' that thinks he's showing dominance by angling your hand down and vice-grip- from-helling your hand.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

When I run into that guy I just let him have his way for a moment then rip his hand off and laugh at his bloody stump.
I have quite the collection of hands.

I reciprocate their handshake.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

I like to just stare at them with massive toothy grin. Right in the eyes. And then when they try to take their death grip off my handshake I clamp down and whisper "Shhhh. They'll never know about us."

I used to do that but strange men started following me home.

Handshakes are a sign of trust and acceptance by both parties. It's more like an honor code type thing, especially in say England where there's less physical contact in general.

I'd rather handshake then kiss someone on the cheek tbh

I hate the guy who grabs your fingers, regardless of how hard he does it. Dude come on, I do not have that big a hand.

i hear stuff about how people gauge your personality by your handshake, in business settings and such, and i just think that's stupid. anyone can develop a firm handshake.

Handshake grip/firmness probably has no real reflection of a person inner strength or moral fiber. But it really doesn't have to if the idiot shaking that persons hand thinks these things apply to their psychology then a judgement is made based on the shakers preconceptions and so on.
