The psychological aspect of touch

When you touch a person you send them many indirect messages that their subconscious minds understand. As soon as you touch a person the person feels safe around you and no longer think of you as a threat.

In addition to that the person doesn't think of you as a competitor anymore and they believe that you are there to help them.

This kind of safe and friendly environment that a touch creates makes people more willing to help and cooperate.

In addition to that the hormones that are related to bonding such as dopamine and oxytocin are produced when a person is touched. This makes the person think that you are a trustworthy friend and not some kind of a stranger who wants some kind of personal benefit.

Finally before you touch a person make sure it's culturally acceptable to do it for sometimes touching can cause aggression when it goes against the culture.
