I have a habit to have a firm and hard shake. I think its important to shake your hand hard and firm to show and express your confidence.

I use a pretty firm grip. Not hard enough to crush your hand but hard enough to make you notice. I feel slightly revolted when someone gives me a real limp hand shake. It makes me think that they have something to hide or that they are just going through the motions like they don't really want to touch me. On the other side I don't care for the macho men who want to try and crush your hand. It makes me think that they are trying to prove that they are superior.
