When Adam knows what the right thing to do is, he lets no one get in his way. This can manifest as outright stubbornness. His moral compass is usually right, but when it's wrong, it can take awhile to change his mind.

Adam had a sense of duty drilled into him from an early age that was further reinforced by his experience in the Korean War. He is quick to self-sacrifice for what he perceives to be a greater good.

Repressed Resentment:
Adam has a lot of things worthy of resentment. He lived through the civil rights movement. He was asked to step down as hero because of the color of his skin. His wife was a plant by SHIELD. He was forced to kill his best friend who was zealot for human equality. Add all these things up and it makes a complicated relationship with modern day authorities.
