How you greet someone can set the tone for your interactions throughout the rest of the day. An awkward greeting may well lead to an awkward day. Then, when the next day starts, it’s hard for your greeting to be anything but awkward, which in turn affects that day, and the resultant feedback loop is how I explain my difficulty making friends when I was in school.
Of course, the fact that I put so much thought into this kind of thing might also have had something to do with it. Also, my habit of using words like resultant can’t have helped either.
