Cu o strângere de mână

What a Handshake Smells Like

Chevrolet, the company announced that July, now had the mathematical formula for a perfect handshake, with 12 variables ranging from the sincerity of the shaker’s smile down to the ideal degree of sweatiness, though the simplified version that made its way into the staff training materials—dry palm, firm grip, eye contact—could also be described as “common sense.” But beneath the weirdness of the whole campaign, Chevrolet actually had a fair point. Hands offered forth for a shake—timid or strong, lingering or prematurely withdrawn—can reveal a lot, especially between people who might otherwise reveal very little to one another. Many historians believe that the handshake originated not as a greeting, but as, to borrow Chevrolet’s phrasing, something that would “offer peace of mind and reassurance” by allowing two people to prove that neither was carrying a weapon.
