The importance of a handshake cannot be overrated

Just like handwriting, how a person shakes hand is also a clue to their inner nature. Nowhere will you find a larger variety in handshakes than at your workplace. So if you know what each handshake says about the person you are interacting with at workplace, you can put that knowledge to good use. Here are ten types of handshakes that you should know about.
1. Sweaty palms: This is usually the sign of a nervous person. When a person is nervous their sympathetic nervous system often becomes overactive, sometimes resulting in sweaty palms.
2. Dead fish: Of all the types of handshakes, the 'dead fish' is the most infamous one. The hand has no energy, there is no shake, no squeeze, not even a pinch, and it gives the feeling you are holding a dead fish instead of a hand. This handshake is synonym to low self-esteem.
