The Hands

– Hiding their hands:

–> not inclined to communicate

–> secretive, possibly lying

– Touching your face while kissing:

–> genuine romantic interest, slow seduction

– Open hand wave:

–> inviting, welcoming

– Thumbs:

–> superiority

When someone has their hands are in the pockets, leaving the thumbs out, it shows confidence, they probably feel superior.

The Handshake

The position of the hands while shaking hands is very revealing of how a person is feeling towards you. Your handshake can also help you seduce men or women and influence others.

– Alpha male handshake:

palm facing down (usually at a 45 degree angle)

–> domination

– Bone-crunching:

–> enthusiasm or domination

– Limp:

–> doesn’t like being touched or submissive

– Double handshake:

It is a sort of mini embrace.

–> friendly

–> invitation to trust or intimacy

Subtly use the double handshake if you are trying to influence someone, or to seduce a man or a woman. When shaking their hand , briefly brush the back of their hand to effectively create a double handshake for a split second.

At an unconscious level, this creates a much stronger bond between you and research shows that it makes the person trust you and like you more.
