To such conclusions, experts from the University of Manchester came after the study. They studied data on 475 thousand people. As a result, they determined that those people who had greater muscle strength were smarter.
Based on the results of the experiment, it was found that volunteers who had a strong handshake, were better at solving analytical problems. They also reasoned more logically and stored information for a longer time.
In addition, it was possible to determine that people who strongly squeezed their hands while greeting or saying goodbye, within two minutes, solved most of the tasks for logical thinking, which the scientists proposed. In addition, they responded more quickly to visual stimuli.
At the same time, some people whose handshake was less strong, some degradation of white matter was observed. It’s about the cells that connect the areas of the brain.
