No matter how we greet each other, whether with our hands, with kisses or with a casual hello, the greeting is important. She opens the conversation and ensures a friendly welcome. The greeting expresses appreciation.

The greeting is a ritual and serves to show respect. This happens, for example, when someone who is sitting stands up to greet someone. The "you" or "you" are also decisive in order to show closeness, distance or even professionalism.

The greeting of the employer, for example, differs greatly from the greeting of the parents or friends. Those who master this move successfully in society.

Often the rank is decisive in the greeting. The lower rank greets the listener. Not the other way around. This also applies to age. Younger people (sometimes) greet older people first.

A personal greeting is often better than an impersonal greeting. If the name of the person is spoken to, it shows interest and also a certain knowledge, as well as decency.

There are some cultural differences in the greeting. In some countries hands are shaken, in other countries people bow. Still others nod to each other. Some kiss each other on the cheeks, others receive a small present as a greeting.
