I'm really shy, but I'm actually pretty good at introducing myself.

this is what i do. although if it's a work-related thing (or the person extends their hand, obviously) i'll shake hands. i dunno, shaking hands seems a bit too professional for me if i'm meeting someone like in a social setting.

I do the first two in work-related situations, but socially, I wait for the other person to make the first move, or wait to be introduced if I'm with someone

As far as shaking hands goes, it depends on the person I'm meeting-if it's an older person, and it's a business situation or a formal situation or whatever, I shake hands. If it's someone about my age, I don't do that. Kids don't really care if you're formal with them.

But I do always say hello and introduce myself, regardless of the age of the person I meet (unless, of course, someone else has already introduced me to a person, then I just say, "Hello, it's nice to meet you.").

Smile, sometimes shake hands depending on who the person is, and introduce myself

i do this too.

i'm currently tutoring and with new students, i always introduce myself with a handshake. little kids really get a kick out of it - i hope it makes them feel important.

I smile, introduce myself, and give a firm handshake. I don't get why people sometimes don't return a firm handshake. It's kind of basic.

But I also have to say that the ability to just walk up and introduce myself is something I've learned to be comfortable with through my work. I have to meet and greet people all the time and I used to hate it but now I don't give it a second thought, it just has to be done.

edited to add that I realize a firm handshake is not necessarily customary within all cultures.

I'm shy at first, but once I get to know you or feel comfortable around you I won't shut up.
