I've both owned and worked with TEJs and found them to be pretty decent for the most part.There's the odd one that was a bit crazy,but then every line has some of those. The QH breeding operation where I used to work dealt heavily in TEJ bloodlines,and boy did they have alot of nice horses;used for everything from roping,ranch, halter, pleasure,and even some english. A number of the studs there had alot of TEJ and they were all very quiet and well mannered. I've owned a couple of TEJ mares.Both were super quiet and went on to be kids mounts. I currently own a filly with alot of TEJ,so we'll see what she's like once she's weaned and comes home and I start working with her.
Also,alot depends on what it's crossed with,as someone mentioned already.

We have a 3 yr old TEJ Mare she's double bred with some Zan Parr Bar, she's smart nice temperament but has a bit of a stubborn streak (side effect of being intelligent I think)

I've noticed once you teach her something she has it down pat.

Two Eyed Jack is a Hall of Fame Quarter Horse.. He was very successful in Halter and Western Pleasure, but also earned points in hunt seat, working cow horse, and reining. And then went on to be a top sire of many disciplines ranging from Western Pleasure, Barrel Racing, and many successful Ranch horses.

Here..This is a pretty good read for someone that is unfamiliar with bloodlines

Two Eyed Jack was a stud back in the 60's and 70's. He was a well known sire of many champion halter and performance horses.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

This.

We have a foundation broodmare who's foals still have Two Eyed Jack on their papers. (her youngest is two) We are done breeding and are considering selling her.

Mare is insanely intelligent. Sweet and easy going.

The majority of her foals have her personality but the looks of the sire.

He would have been a fantastic bronc! He wasn't worth a darn for much else unless you worked the living daylights out of him first. Thankfully, he wasn't mine

We have a mare who we've owned for quite a few years with TEJ on her papers, and she's a beautiful, quite broodmare with quite a stubborn streak! Her foals seem to be the same way, the filly who was on her when we bought her was the first horse I ever trained, and she was full of attitude, pissy days and would consistently be testing me. Also one of the smartest horses I've ever ridden. Only one I've ever trusted enough to ride out bareback and bridleless! I ride her sister now (same dam) and she's got the same attitude and threw the girl who started her a couple times, but she tries hard, and once you establish that your the boss, not her, she is a different horse, softens right up and sweet as sugar!
