|Instead of looking at other applicants, you should look at yourself. You are making a major business decision, as well as a decision that will profoundly impact the life of another person, and you are basing your decision on nothing more than a stereotype. There is absolutely no correlation between a personís handshake and his or her character. |
The notion about the relationship between a personís handshake and his or her character has been bandied about for many years, and this fact alone has caused many people to believe it. However, there are many age-old truisms that have been around for eons and lack even the slightest hint of truth.
If you want to know about the strength of this applicantís character, take a look at the best indicator of his character, namely his past behavior. By gathering a clear picture of his work history, you will have no problem discerning a true measure of his character. If you rely on a handshake to make this determination, you are on shaky ground.
