A firm grip is good, but it can't be so firm as to be bone crushing.

A firm grip is genuine, it shows me the other person has strength and is good on his word.

Your Question itself seems to me MISSING a word, perhaps "at", or "for" (as in, "What do you look AT when...", or "What do you look FOR when..."). It makes NO sense in it's present state.
To answer the "AT" question: I actually end up looking AT my/our hands, to be sure that MY hand gets into the correct position (and my hand doesn't get squeezed improperly).
To answer the "FOR" question: I look for a firm grip 1st, and eye contact 2nd (after I've made contact, of course).
Whew!

What do I look or what do I look at? I look like me when I'm shaking someone's hand.

None of the above. It's just a hand shake. Sometimes I shake hands loosely, sometimes not, just depends on my mood. I'm a good employee though and would prefer not to be judged by a 3 second hand hold.

All of the above, except not so much the well-groomed nails. Eye contact and firmness/sincerity of grip first, duration, etc. are all important to me.

I would prefer not to shake hands. Just a simple thank you would do. But I realize in the business world and as a point of getting hired for a job, you might have to shake hands and be friendly. Some people have a real tight grip and too much strength in their hands. I have small hands for a man, so I don't like a tight grip.

I look for a combination of firm grip, eye contact, and how much of my hand the other person grabs. When a male gives me that dainty, delicate, half-arse handshake, he's telling me several things. All of them make me break out the Marine Corps wife mode. Sorry dude, but just shake my hand, you're not about to kiss the hand of royalty. Nor are you going to break me with a simple handshake.

LOL! Too funny! Exactly! Just shake my hand...

whether or not a man shakes my hand correctly, since I am a female- so really, the lack of a firm grip or not.
Because: a man is supposed to shake a woman's hand differently than a man's hand- the classic firm shake for a man, and a gentle hold for a woman.

I don't like to miss hands for firm shaking and I love to watch their fingers how many gold rings they wear.

I look for it to end as soon as possible because i hate handshakes. I don't want to touch a stranger. I really dislike people assuming i want to grab their hand, but somehow i'm the weird one if i don't do it.

Handshaking is nasty, transfers a lot of germs.
I don't shake hands.
Handshaking was originally meant to show you had no weapon...
