These negative traits come out in Gene's character profile:
However, Gene has some positive points, too. He is ambitious, hardworking (studious), and reflective. He has a natural complicity in friendship, which to him means more that superficial relationships with peers. He would have been loyal, too, had not the competitive and envious streak in him got the best of him in a moment of weakness. That is why it is so hard for him to make peace with himself after he betrays Finny by making him fall.
