The 3 Handshakes

The Dead Slug
When one limply puts their hand in yours and does not initiate any shake or grip. They make you do all the work, but you can’t grasp their hand too tightly for fear of squishing it.

The Perfect Shake
When one applies just the right amount of shake and grip. This handshake says they are healthily confident in themselves but are also so pleased to meet you. It feels secure but not overbearing.

The Blood Pressure Monitor
Often the result of a much larger and stronger hand than yours, this handshake almost crushes your hand and is slightly painful. You have no chance of escaping until they release your hand.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
