How to Judge a Woman by Her Handshake

From Ladies' Home Journal

Find out the powerful message behind her greeting.

By giving a woman’s hand a shake, you can also get a grip on her personality. “A handshake sends a powerful message,” says Robert E. Brown, a California management consultant, long-time handshake observer and lecturer on the psychology of handshakes. According to Brown, the best greetings engage the full hand and involve eye contact and a brief linger, all of which signify sincerity, confidence and openness. Beware of the shakes that are:

Half-handed: A fingers-only squeeze may show a lack of connection and a fear of intimacy.
Clammy: A cold and indifferent shake typically conveys fear or nervousness.
Two-handed: This double grab tells you that the woman wants intimacy too quickly; it may be a sign she can’t be trusted.
Over-the-top: When her palm faces down in relation to yours, she’s expressing superiority and dominance.

Hmm... very interesting... what about for men? Do the same rules apply?
