Although Damon Dash is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Dash's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Damon Dash has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Damon Dash will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Dash can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Damon Dash also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Damon Dash has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Dash for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Damon Dash usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Damon Dash also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Damon has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Dash's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Damon Dash lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Dash. Damon Dash has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Damon Dash may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
At times Damon Dash may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of him. When his life is becoming too predictable, Damon may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Damon Dash which needs to be expressed now and then.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Dash knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Damon Dash tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
His courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and Damon Dash is prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he has chosen.
