Since I haven’t been on any cruise lately – next one coming up January, 2011 – I had fun analyzing the hands and personalities of famous people such as Charlie Sheen, Elvis Presley, Robert Pattinson and Marilyn Monroe.
I also decided to turn my Handshake seminar into an article that I am sharing with you in this newsletter. So shake it well!

Way of the Mind's Article - Types of Handshakes: How to Give Them; How to Read Them

There are many types of handshakes and ways to greet people. Some of them are the accolade, the military salute, the high five, the kisses, the bow, the wave – royal or not – and many more besides the handshake. In this article, I am going to focus on how to give a handshake and how to read the most common types of handshakes. To facilitate the reading, I will use the masculine form (he), but this content applies to women too.

How to Give a Good Handshake

According to Vedic palmistry, the palm of the hand indicates who you really are deep inside, while the fingers show only what you decide to show others about you. Since a handshake is an exchange of energy between two people, you should make sure that your palms – more than your fingers – connect to each other.

By holding your hand in a vertical position, fingers together while your thumb is extended and forming an L-shape with the rest of your hand, you will ensure that your palms connect. Then, you can wrap your fingers around the other person’s palm. Your arm should be slightly bent in a flexible position.

As you make hand contact, also make eye contact. Don’t stare but look at the other person’s eyes long enough to see the eye color, and remember to smile.

Then shake the hand two or three times, more if you are in South America. Also, if you finished a job interview and your interviewer shakes your hand five times or more, you probably got the job! Alcohol seems to influence the number of shakes: two per drink, I have been told!

Knowing how to give a proper handshake allows you to identify and read other types of handshakes. Read the rest of this article here.

Mind Boggling
Love and Lust
Love and lust, when they are set in motion, stimulate very different areas of the brain. Erotic photos activate the hypothalamus, which controls hunger and thirst, and the amygdala, which produces arousal.
Love triggers areas with a high concentration of receptors for dopamine, a substance associated with euphoria, craving, and addiction.
So if you are not sure whether it’s love or lust, all you need is a mini-brain scanner in your pocket!

Mind Games
Anne, Josée and Catherine are dating Alain, Thierry and Daniel.
Knowing that Catherine can't stand Daniel, that Josée dates Daniel's brother and that Thierry dates Josée's sister, who is dating whom? You will find the solution in the next issue of With You in Mind but you still have time to think about it!

Solution of last newsletter's Mind Game:
How many days will it take the snail to reach the top of the well?
The answer is 28 days. Congratulations to Brahm Memone who sent me the right answer within a few hours!
The other participants who gave 30 days as the answer didn’t take into account the fact that, once the snail reached the top of the well, it didn’t need to slide back one more time.

Mind Tickle
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. - Abraham Lincoln
