It can be hard sometimes to let people know precisely how you feel. A high five is always a firm favourite gesture. It doesn’t feel appropriate for all situations – especially if you aren’t feeling too friendly towards the receiver. Don’t worry – we have suggested some modifications for such situations
- When you think that palm to palm isn’t personal enough to get your message across why not try the fingers to face technique.
- If you think that five fingers might not be enough what about four legs (of a chair) instead?
Feel free to make your own modifications. The high five is amenable to many amendments.
