He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Stonewall Jackson cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Jackson can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Stonewall has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Stonewall Jackson probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Stonewall Jackson seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately.
