You see nothing special.
While he is not stupid as his trouble with grasping some human concepts, his naivety, and his own insistence to the fact might make him appear, it can very much come off that way to some. He can often be ignored or not taken seriously thanks to this. His having been gone from humanity for 10 years of the formative part of his life means he doesn't get a lot of things. Some he doesn't get after already having had it explained to him, and some just being things no one thought to explain because it was such common knowledge to them. For instance he'd likely have a lot of trouble with grasping even the most basic of complex social issues. It's almost impossible for him to wrap his head around higher tech things like computers as well. Trying to explain as such is sometimes quick to lead to annoyance and headaches for both parties. To make matters worse he's a bit insecure because of these shortcomings and can can grind others' patients more so by assuming wrong doing on his own part and apologizing or fretting more oft than needed.
Naivety and Trust:
Gonta wants so badly to get along with people and believes in the best from most people. Unless he actually sees someone as evil, he will most likely want to give them second chances over and over and over again even though they've burned him personally, making him look very forgetful and stupid to those that don't understand his motivations and drive to help and protect others.
Depending on the severity, sometimes just saying you don't like bugs is enough to start making Gonta irritated. Actually hurting bugs without very good reason is likely to cause MUCH worse with his temper.
Gentleman Code: Gonta tries his hardest to follow everything he's learned of how gentlemen are supposed to act. As he feels part of being a gentleman is doing the right things, he probably would also be EXTREMELY unlikely to ever be talked out of these beliefs. This means there are several things he tries to severely adhere to that might strongly inconvenience him at times. For instance he must not strike women unless it is ABSOLUTELY necessary to do so(such as if they are being a clear and obvious threat to his friends). He's not supposed to look at naked people. He should help people in need. He should always treat women nicely and with respect. He shouldn't be rude. He shouldn't lie. So on and so forth for whatever he is convincingly enough lead to believe a gentleman should do. This also causes him to mostly try and default to handling things with pacifism, should it not be important to do otherwise.
It's very easy for Gonta to fall into his emotions a bit too hard and, despite his generally happy and positive temperament, fly into the kind of aforementioned moments of being overly excited or angry, or one of the other alternatives is that he just breaks out sobbing over something seemingly small. This, in turn, tends to lead to him feeling self conscious of how he'd overreacted, often causing him to apologize or worry overly much.
