Why President Donald Trump doesn’t shake hands like a normal person.


Today we discuss that why President Donal Trump doesn’t shake hands like a normal person. One of the fascinating psychologists explained about the president. The chapter is created this past month, when the newly France President Emmanuel Macron, saw the signature handshake of Trump’s.

After the visit, Trump he offers half-open hand after signalling a  handshake is expected (in this case, requesting an uncalled for handshake from King Phillipe of Belgium).

He will also avoid from a normal shake, he’ll yank it uncomfortably towards himself, forcing Trump’s “victim” to extend their arms and turn their body into an uncomfortable position.

Frank Bernieri, an associate professor in the psychology department at Oregon State University stated that,

“It’s an intimidation tactic. There are self-preservation strategies and  intimidation is one of the main ones. This is perfectly consistent with Trump. He pretty much says that’s what I do to make a deal.”

Howard Friedman, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Nonverbal Behavior and a professor in  the psychology department at the University of California said that,

Such attempts would usually be ineffective because the main point of a handshake is to establish a sense of mutuality and mutual respect. [S]omeone who uses or attempts to use such a power or intimidation handshake either 1) already has the power and would also simultaneously be employing other status signals like elevated height
