If McMurphy is the hero he obviously has strengths but what would be his weaknesses?

I think McMurphy didn't know when to quit. He pushed nurse Ratched so far that she retaliated in the worst way possible. McMurphy is rather a Christ figure. He chose to become a martyr for the other men even though he could have done more for them if he stayed alive and got out.
