Want to make a better first impression? Here's a quick trick to help you out.
Researchers at the University of Illinois have found that when two people meet, the person who extends their hand for a handshake FIRST leaves a better first impression.
They actually monitored brain scans as people met, to see how the brain reacts to different parts of a first meeting. And nothing was more tied to a positive first impression like extending your hand first for the handshake.
BUT . . . it's also important to give a GOOD HANDSHAKE. They found you can waste a lot of the goodwill from initiating a handshake if your handshake is LIMP or WEAK.
