He is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from his own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if he could turn his feelings on and off at will; Ernest should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for he could easily become too impersonal.

Borgnine can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously he may feel that too much closeness in his relationships will interfere with doing what he needs to do and being his own person, so Ernest Borgnine puts up subtle walls and distance himself when someone begins to want more of him than he can comfortably give. However, Borgnine may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Ernest Borgnine might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming his fears of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on his autonomous needs, is the challenge here.
