Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Dexter Holland has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Dexter Holland is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of his kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Holland for help, which he readily gives. Sometimes Holland's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
He is a gentle, poetic soul and has a great love and affinity for music. Because many of his feelings are vague and he cannot easily verbalize how he experiences life, music seems a natural language for Holland. He is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
His own feelings and emotions are something of an enigma to Dexter, and it is often difficult for him to share with others what he is feeling.
Dexter Holland frequently withdraws from contact with the world, and needs a healing, peaceful environment in order to blossom and come out of his.
Holland identifies with the oppressed, disenfranchised or underdog in any situation and he wants to help them or care for them in some way.
Dexter Holland has a buoyant, cheerful disposition and he reaches out to others in a warm, open and friendly way. His emotional generosity and lack of pettiness is well known among his circle of friends, and people often seek Dexter out for help, sympathy or advice. Dexter Holland is always willing to overlook others' faults, and he sometimes overdoes his charitableness.
His childhood and early home life was in many ways unsettling, and the nurturing Holland received was erratic and unreliable at best. Dexter Holland has had to move a lot, or Holland's family may have been blatantly different from other people so that Dexter was often deemed an outsider or a "weirdo". As an adult, Dexter Holland may long for "normalcy" while at the same time he balks at any routine, structure, formality or restrictions.
Dexter Holland often becomes nervous or shaky when emotionally stressed. Developing a regular rhythm and a steady, consistent (if not traditional) way of life would be beneficial to Holland, both emotionally and physically.
The beauty and harmony of his surroundings have a very powerful effect on Holland's emotions. He is very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kindhearted, and peace loving, Dexter Holland is prepared to sacrifice a great deal in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy".
He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Dexter Holland values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Dexter desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Holland, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Dexter Holland appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Holland is a very sociable, congenial person and he wilts very quickly without relationships with good friends and people to share good times with. Dexter Holland thoroughly enjoys working with others on group projects or community activities. He is quite happy when he is a part of a club, support group, or team of some sort.
