Singapore APEC

The APEC summit is currently being held in Singapore and for the past week, photos of our leaders exchanging handshakes with their international counterparts and top delegates made daily headline news.

Having read a book of body languages before, I find it interesting to note the different kinds of handshakes exchanged between the leaders as different handshakes may mean different meanings.

Whether the person perpetuating a particular kind of handshake does it out of ignorance, naturally or with knowledge of the intended meaning of the handshake, it is a hazy area, but handshake signals can be an interesting sight to watch especially when top leaders pose for photos of their exchange of handshakes in front of the media.
