Maybe I'm just being dense, but the obvious definition (a personality that adapts to the situation at hand)...seems a little off. Anyone have a better definition?

I'm no psychologist, but I would say that a dynamic personality is an exuberant, outgoing person who has wild swings in their actions and deeds.

Is that what they mean when they say "That person is a real dynamo"?

Just as everything, it's all in the definition/intent.

The good: Dynamic Personality - Highly adaptable and willing to take on any challenge.

The bad: Dynamic Personality - Highly unstable and reacts to any stimulus.

The ugly: Dynamic Personality - Any of the billions of terms from that over-diagnosed nation : )

From a 1987 social sciences paper cited in my textbook:

"Those with the dynamic-personality archetype outwardly exhibit motivation, activity, and are generally considered gregarious by others."

From dictionary.com: (I wasn't sure what gregarious meant)

Gregarious: Seeking and enjoying the company of others; sociable.

i dont know why but i tend to mimic the personality of whoever i am spending time with.

Seriously, if i hang out with a funny person, i actually say funnier things. Its not a complete change but i definitely act and feel different around different people.

I dont get it.

That's pretty normal, I'd say. Different situations call for different conversations. If you worked at the assembly line of General Motors, you'd behave differently around your co-workers in the break room than you would if the company president stopped by to inspect the plant and boost morale.
