Jessie refuses to reveal her weaknesses to the other toys, but a lot of them are clearly shown and mentioned in both films; but all of the toys accept them. She is sassy, sweet, rambunctious and adventurous. Just like the rest of Andy's toys, she also tends to be quite stubborn. She has a fear of abandonment which was caused when her first owner, Emily, gave her away to a charity. This fear causes her to hyperventilate. She also suffers from nyctophobia and claustrophobia which also triggers her hyperventilation or panic attacks. These two phobias were developed when Al put her into storage. She is also shown to be a third leader to Andy's toys as they listen to her when Woody and Buzz aren't around.
