approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Damon's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Damon Dash comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Damon Dash - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Damon Dash" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Damon a little better. This page describes the disguise Dash wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Damon Dash likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Dash must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Damon does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Damon Dash also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Dash will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Damon dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Dash admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Damon Dash befriends someone, Dash is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Damon expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Damon Dash often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Damon Dash has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Damon always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Damon Dash also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Damon more than anything else. Damon Dash feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Damon Dash has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Damon Dash often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Damon has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Damon Dash is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Dash must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Damon Dash appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Dash is unreliable.
Damon Dash believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. His relationships tend to be very harmonious and his participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
