Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Howard Dean is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he allows only a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is very, very instinctive and intuitive. Howard Dean usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels as he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Howard Dean also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationships with someone he loves. When Howard Dean commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Howard merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Dean has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Certainly Howard will never forget the injury and he often harbors grievances and resentments for a long, long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Howard does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Dean can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Dean can also be very narrow: either he is 100% involved in something or else it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Howard Dean emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on being obsessive. Fierce pride, courage, and emotional strength are his in abundance.
Howard Dean loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Howard never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Howard Dean tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
