From the way he acted, he was willing to sell out his own family to get what he wanted.

The main character is extremely overconfident, ignoring the advice that those who know much more about the land give him. He decides to embark on the journey despite the warnings of cold from the elders, does not take a partner, and ignores survival advice during the moments where there is no time to make mistakes. The man is so ignorant that he even ignores his own observations. When it’s observed that it could be as cold as seventy degrees below zero, the main character is more amused than concerned at the realization. As he notices his cheeks are freezing, he acts like it’s nothing to be worried about, despite the fact that this is evidence that his body is not properly covered up.

He also decides not to tell any of his friends about what he went through, being introverted. Another example is when Alan finished crying and said, ¨I am descending into madness¨ (Haber 167).

The traumatic experience caused him to behave this way. The Underground Man is not able to look at people in the eye. He sees himself with disgust and regret, hating the appearance of his face but frightens if others catch a glimpse of him, as he is afraid of their derisive laughter.
