Nurturing, creative and obsessive: Expert reveals what Beyonce's handwriting tells us about her personality



22:33 GMT, 12 April 2012

In an open letter today, Beyonce expressed her admiration and pride in Michelle Obama.

But in addition to her love for the U.S. First Lady, the note also revealed fascinating insight into the 30-year-old singer's character.

According to handwriting expert Michelle Dresbold, author of Sex, Lies and Handwriting, the style of Beyonce's script indicates a nurturing, creative personality with a logical approach to life.


Analysis: Beyonce's handwriting reveals insight into her personality. The large loop of her 'F', for example, tells us she is sensual and enjoys fine food and wine

She told MailOnline how the way the star underlines her name indicate pride and self-confidence, which likely explains that ease in performing on stage.

And writing the letter 'F' with a full bottom loop shows that she is sensual and likes fine wine and good food.


Pride: The handwritten letter, posted on the singer's website, declared Mrs Obama 'the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman'

Maternal instincts: The rounded script shows the star is feminine and nurturing

It comes as little surprise to learn that Beyonce is 'feminine, nurturing and would make a good mother' – traits gleaned from the rounded shape of her letters. The star gave birth to a daughter, Blue Ivy in January, and clearly dotes on the newborn, carrying her around New York in a furry papoose.

But what few beyond her immediate circle
are likely to know, is that there is apparently an obsessive element to
her character, indicated by the way she ends her last sentence with a
large full stop.

Here, Ms Dresbold explains what each aspect of Beyonce's script means – and how you can apply the same logic to your own handwriting.

Do you see the gap between the letter “i’ and the “chelle” in the
name, “Michelle”. This gap is because Beyonce subconsciously dotted her
“i” immediately before writing the rest of the name. You will see these
gaps in the writing of very intelligent, creative people.Beyonce’s letters are very rounded. This shows Beyonc is feminine, nurturing and would make a good mother.Beyonce’s handwriting does not slant to the right or to the left.
This shows that she approaches matters in a very logical way.The bottom loop of Beyonce’s letter “f” is full and rounded. This
shows that she is sensual and likes fine wine, good food and a warm
massage. Personal Hint: If you find that the bottom loop of your “f”
gets bigger and bigger it indicates that your stomach is expanding…You
may be pregnant or you may just have to hit the old diet plan.Beyonce ends her last sentence with a large period. This type of
large, yet light punctuation dot shows that she is obsessive and won’t
stop until she gets what she is after. Personal Hint: if you see many
punctuation marks where the periods are large, heavy and ground-in, it
is a sign that the writer is angry, irritable and obsessive.Beyonce writes her name smaller than the name “Michelle”. This
indicates that Beyonce sees Michelle Obama as bigger and more of a
champion than see sees herself. Personal hint: Look at your old love
letters. If a certain someone wrote his name extra-large and your name
teeny weeny, he thinks he’s hot stuff and you’re cold potatoes.Beyonce underlines her name with a squiggle. People, like Beyonce, who underscore their name with a simple line, feel proud of themselves, like to be on stage and have good self confidence in public. Personal hint: You can boost your self-esteem by making a simple underscore beneath your signature.
