Imaam ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) mentions in his book “al-Fawaid” under the chapter, “The Wisdom of Ibn Mas’ud”:

يَنْبَغِي لحامل الْقُرْآن أَن يعرف بليله إِذا النَّاس نائمون وبنهاره إِذا النَّاس مفطرون وبحزنه إِذا النَّاس يفرحون وببكائه إِذا النَّاس يَضْحَكُونَ وبصمته إِذا النَّاس يَخُوضُونَ وبخشوعه إِذا النَّاس يختالون وَيَنْبَغِي لحامل الْقُرْآن أَن يكون باكيا مَحْزُونا حكيما حَلِيمًا سكينا وَلَا يَنْبَغِي لحامل الْقُرْآن أَن يكون جَافيا وَلَا غافلا وَلَا سخابا وَلَا صياحا وَلَا حديدا

“People who have memorized the Qur’an should be known by the night when people are sleeping and he is awake, and by the morning when people are not fasting but he is, by his sadness when they are happy, by his crying when they are laughing, by his silence when they are slandering, and by his piety and humility when they are arrogant. He who has memorized the Qur’an should be tearful, sad, wise, patient, and calm, he should not be rude, inattentive, loud or cruel.”
