He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Ackles. Jensen Ackles tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous.

Jensen Ackles has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Jensen Ackles feel that "it is me against the world".
