Slouching is not only bad for your physical body – creating aches and pains in the back, headaches and strained muscles in the neck – it is also bad for your image.
Whether you’re trying to get the attention of a romantic interest or trying to score that promotion, your posture plays a significant role in how others view your attitude and other competencies.
Even if you’re a little on the short side (like myself), that doesn’t mean you have to look timid. Best posture for most confidence: Handshakes are usually the first impression you give someone upon meeting them.
Having a good grip is a sign of confidence, power and wisdom, whereas a “fishy”, weak grip shows insecurity and fear.
Another component of this form of communication that people don’t often think about is the placement of the palm: This is a common question and everybody has their own, comfortable duration before he or she begins feeling like they are holding someone’s hand unnecessarily.
