He jumped into the Ice Prison because he was attempting a Heroic Rescue. It wasn't until afterwards that he bothered to think about how stupid that was. It was all about striving for recognition.

As for yelling at the kid, that actually turned out to be the right response. Once he figured out that Naruto was like himself, it helped the kid to stop feeling sorry for himself.

Such bitterness! He can afford to be baka because a whole show is named after him. But I have to agree that the show should have been called Shikamaru. Then there would have been atleast one episode title which would have read, Shika the Cloud Watcher.

I don't think that was really "striving for recognition", it was just raw stupidity. His striving for recognition bits were saving the kid and his mom from the swordsmen who just loved cutting stuff up, and then the pseudo dynamic entry.

Walking into a prison cell to get your friend out while the people watching the prison are still there is going above and beyond the realm of normal person stupidity. He must have had access to Kyuubi chakra at this point to allow for this to happen.

Yelling at the kid turned out to be the right thing, but Naruto was just yelling at him because the kid was pissing him off...the way Naruto yells at everyone.

It's a combination of both. Naruto is both obnoxious and striving for recognition. Telling everyone you face off that you will definately kick their ass in obnoxious to me.

As time goes on Naruto will begin to gain the ability yo controll more and more of the 9 tails chakra. As you have seen in ep 16/17 when he is using that chakra he is pretty much unstopable.

Later in the series he starts gaining more ability to call on that chakra at willl. Sasuke's reactions to naruto using this power are quite nice hehe

striving for recognition isnt just shown in that one event. it is in the whole series.
