Michelle Yeoh's hands show her to be different

Michelle’s Yeoh’s hands are quite different from a typical actor's hands. Her hands show her to be a practical, down-to-earth woman, with a broad and unselfish outlook on life. She is far less immersed in herself than other actors. In other words, she appears to lack that quintessential quality of narcissism, which actors often possess.

Research has indicated that actors/celebrities are more narcissistic than the general population. The research shows that while men in the general population are more narcissistic than women, in the celeb world it is the femmes fatales who are
“significantly more narcissistic than their male counterparts”.

Not Michelle Yeoh. She is an exception. It would be difficult to guess that she is a celebrity/actor by looking at her hands. Check out one of her hand photos here.

The shape of her hand, rectangular/square with its broad palm and predominantly square tips, the balanced Head Line and strong thumb betray a strong character rooted in reality. The thumb shows strong will power, that of a person who pushes things almost in a bull-headed manner until the job is done. And Michelle is a planner as well. Oh yes. Her Head Line, knots and third phalanges show extreme planning skills and amazing discipline and control. Such people are doers and achievers, with a thinking mind behind the strong will.

The shape of her fingers and thumb tell us about her action-oriented, bold and energetic nature. This is another very strong aspect of her personality - several signs on her hand point to it. Her broad palm, the slimness of her phalanges, the gap between her Head and Life lines and also her strong Mercurian qualities.

Mercury itself personifies energy. Mercurians are active people, and in addition, graceful and agile. They are not suited to a desk job. The developed first phalange of Mercury (which Michelle has) shows an eloquent person, both mentally and physically and shows acting ability, or rather, the ability to mimic. Many actors do have good Mercury fingers, but in Michelle's case, Mercury dominates.

Money matters to Michelle. She is the kind who will work hard to earn her bread, but money is important and always was. Perhaps it is a practical nature and lack of idealism that makes her this way.

Her Mount of Moon is developed too, although less than her Mercury. This sign, in combination with the slight development of the third phalange of Saturn as well as the shape of the Saturn finger tells us that she can think morbidly at times. Cynicism and a certain amount of negativity is part and parcel of her. This quality seems surprising for someone as pragmatic and controlled as Michelle. Perhaps her lack of aggression and temper has resulted in her becoming this way. While Michelle is strong-willed, she can be pushed and bullied by someone stronger or by circumstances. She can get crushed, and perhaps that is why she has built a wall around her.

She has a strong sex drive, passion and a big heart. Evident in the developed of her Mount of Venus, it’s width and also in the shape of her Heart Line. However she remains a mystery woman because she can be closed and hard to approach (the way she holds her fingers). On one hand she has deep passions and a loving heart, and on the other hand she has the melancholy and cynicism that keeps her aloof. Michelle appears tough on the outside, but she is very soft on the inside, and very straightforward in her dealings.

  1. I recently saw one of her films in which she had given an impressive performance. With some people, you cannot guess their character by looking at their faces (like how we generally tend to do!) and perhaps its true of her as well! I must appreciate the director's skills and how they mold their real life characters in to on-screen ones!

  2. Thanks for your comment DI. About people, I guess people put up a strong front when they know they are vulnerable. More in the case of those in the public eye, probably.
