Here’s the formula for the perfect handshake

Melbourne, July 16 (ANI): Brit scientists reckon that they have devised the formula for the perfect handshake.

The traditional form of greeting needs to be executed with the right hand and a complete grip, firm squeeze, cool dry palm, three shakes with medium vigour and no longer than three seconds, all accompanied by an appropriate verbal statement.

Manchester University researchers have unveiled a mathematical formula for the ‘perfect handshake’, which, according to them should convey respect and trust.

The formula is: PH = ? (e2 + ve2)(d2) + (cg + dr)2 + ?{(4<s>2)(4<p>2)}2 + (vi + t + te)2 + {(4<c>2 )(4<du>2)}2.

In other words, sweaty palms, limp wrists, gripping too hard and lack of eye contact were contributors to a bad handshake.

Geoffrey Beattie, the university’s head of psychological sciences, took twelve key measures into account that would convey trust and respect.

“The human handshake is one of the most crucial elements of impression formation and is used as a source of information for making a judgment about another person,’ the Courier Mail quoted Beattie as saying. (ANI)
