Some people have soft hands which are more smooth to the touch while others have hardened, dry, sometimes calloused skin on their hands. Ive heard that having harder hands has the implication that it makes you seem like a hard worker. Mechanics, engineers, carpenters and construction workers usually have harder hands. On the other hand, having softer hands can be construed as being feminine or weak. My work history is primarily in food service, and where ive worked they always had special gloves that you had to wear for almost every task for safety and sanitation reasons. Now I'm working in a desk job where much of my work is done on the computer. So naturally my hands have been pretty soft. Ive had to do some work on my house a few times which roughed em up a little more than they used to be, but still I cant help but have a sort of appreciation for someone when I shake their hand and they have a sturdy grip with hands that feel like they've been used.
