Best Answer

You shake someone's hand with your right hand.

Unless you are a Boy Scout greeting another scout in uniform. Lord Baden-Powell instituted the left hand shake to emulate the Ashanti warriors of Africa who shook with their left hands as it necessitated letting go of their shields - thus indicating trust in the other party.
