What Does a Weak Handshake Mean to You?

Having this debate earlier. To me I feel someone with a weak handshake has something to hide.

What about everyone else?

I met Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis when BSC brought Planet Hollywood public.

I was on the otc desk at the time as an assitant trader.

As each Celeb walked by, I stuck out my hand.

Arnold: more of a low-five, side slap.

Stallone: Dead fish and seemed to be taken aback by the scene on the trading desk -

Demi - no shake.

Willis. firm handshake -left hand on shoulder. Sincere .

Willis was the cooest out of the bunch. He stayed for a bit and asked us what it was like to trade. Seems he was a regular guy at heart and missed comraderie...

- Met Barry Pepper a few years later. Dead fish.

Whatever it measn - I don't know

I love when I get complemented for having a firm handshake, makes me feel like people actually care about me

I've never met a chick with a firm handshake.....but I guess that's a good thing wink.gif

A weak handshake to me means that the person is probably embarrassed or nervous.

I hate when I shake someone's hand, and they realize that I have a firm handshake so they start squeezing harder, and then it just gets awkward....

I've shaken a thousand hands in my life, maybe more, but the one that stood out was Mark Gastineau backstage at a Rod Stewart concert. I did my best with a firm handshake and wished him a good season, but swear his fingers alone wrapped around my hands a few times. I was totally intimidated by his handshake.

The funniest handshake moment was with Gerry Cooney. We shook hands and posed for a photo. I then suggested as a goof that we strike the boxer pose for the photo, at which time someone in our group yelled that Cooney should lay down on the floor to be a realistic pose. Even Cooney laughed hard.

I like a good firm handshake with the free hand on the other arm.

If I know someone well. I like the shoulder bump/semi-hug pat on the back.

If someone gives me a weak handshake, I put my free hand on our hands, I suppose to encourage some trust and easieness.

Similar to what others think, a weak handshake to me means either they are insincere and/or they have low self-esteem/confidence. Or they're literally a homo. I think that's how they do it... being effeminate and shaking hands like a lady.


On the other side of it, I have a fishing buddy that just about crushes my hand before and after each fishing outing. A bit overdone. It's almost as bad as getting a limp shake imo.
