I've always been a bit of a wuss when it came to manly things. Even the most basic things you never even think about, like a handshake. If a man shakes a woman's hand, he naturally shakes it with gentle care. When he shakes a man's hand, it's usually quick, strong, and hard. In fact, a lot of interview tip sites will actually tell you a firmer grip is actually supposed to help you because it makes you look aggressive and confident. I actually hate it. Not because it's necessarily uncomfortable, more like it's a shock of "woah, I forget some men shake like this". Had a couple new hires recently at work, and both of them greeted with that typical strong handshake.

  1. Ha! Love the look on the woman's face. It really looks like her hand is being squeezed. I tend to shake hands firmly at interviews and that's about it.
