How do we get a repulsive shock?

Repulsive shock - are you referring to the electrical shock where the hand or the person is apparently thrown away from the source of the electricity?

If so, it all depends on how the contact with the live wire is made...If the wire is held by the hand like we hold any wire or glass, the chance of the hand / fist closing around the live wire is high because the muscles tend to contract when a voltage is applied...the galvanic effect...

On the other hand, if we touch the live wire with the back of the hand, the hand would contract and thus pull itself away from the source, apparently the shock is repulsive...

That is why trained electricians use the back of the hand to test leakage / live wire if a tester is not readily available...

I hope you got what you are looking for...
