It's all in a handshake

Yes, this is what I do to help me evaluate and/or form an impression or opinion of someone when I meet them for the first time.  My secret is now out but that's okay.

My dad once told me that handshakes often help to tell a story but I'll also tell you that it is not always accurate.  Most times, however, it is.

I almost always pay attention to the type of handshake I receive.  There can be so many types of handshakes, ranging from the limp one to the firm one and from the full one to the two-handed one.  There is the one where one barely touches your hand.  The one where one simply touches your fingers.  The dry one and the sweaty palm one.

I have had them all and even the one where one firmly grasps your hand and swings it round and around.  I am not saying that anyone should use this particular strategy to help them evaluate and formulate but when one is unable to see expressions, gestures, smiles, and glances, it is the next best thing.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
