He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Youssou N'Dour rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often N'Dour's love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". N'Dour may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.

Youssou's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache.
