Warm, loving and generous in his relationships, Damon Dash inspires tremendous devotion and loyalty in his loved ones. This is good, since he would never settle for anything less! Damon wants to be adored and worshipped like the royalty he feels he is, and it is difficult for anyone to resist the warmth and attention Dash lavishes on those he cares about. Damon Dash has a great deal of pride and needs to be recognized and appreciated. The way to really hurt his feelings is to ignore him. He is genuine, sincere, and has a strong sense of personal integrity. Damon Dash hates emotional games and dishonesty.
Damon Dash has a soft exterior and tends to relate very personally and sympathetically to other people. However, Damon sometimes lets his emotions overpower his reasoning and logic, and consequently he is sometimes biased in his opinions. Damon Dash is impressionable and rather gentle, or at least that is the way he appears. His feelings are on the surface and Damon cannot hide his emotions.
Damon Dash tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if he perceives a threat to his family or home or personal safety, he can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Damon feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Damon Dash also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent, that he is not entirely conscious of. It is good for Dash to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Damon Dash may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in his relationships.
Although Dash gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Damon Dash to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
Damon Dash often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Dash actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Damon Dash to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Damon Dash becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Dash can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
Although Damon Dash was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Damon's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
He is a dreamer who is attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. Damon does not enjoy confrontation and becomes very evasive when problems in his personal life or relationships arise, and escapes into his imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. He is also rather gullible and naive about people, especially if his sympathy has been aroused. Damon Dash is very sensitive to music and can use it to achieve emotional balance and harmony.
Damon Dash tends to be a bit pessimistic and is inclined to feel emotional depressed a lot. Damon may feel like withdrawing from everything, but should try to listen to others' point of view in order to balance his overly pessimistic views.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Damon Dash enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Damon wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Damon is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show Dash places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, Damon Dash feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
Damon Dash is not a traditionalist where love and relationships are concerned, and he often feels that formal commitments and conventional relationships are too binding and restricting. Thus, Damon is not very comfortable with forming lasting attachments or letting other people depend on him. He may be attracted to wild, unreliable, highly creative and/or unstable people who do not offer him any security. Even if Damon Dash professes to want something steady and solid, he is very reluctant to give up his freedom and autonomy for its sake. At best, he is suited to serial monogamy or relationships that leave Dash a lot of breathing space.
