Is Stubbornness Detrimental? Here Is How You Can Recognize It In Yourself

stubbornness definition
Stubbornness is a basic character flaw or personality defect, one of seven possible chief features adopted in adolescence to protect the self at the level of false personality.
Stubbornness is the tendency to resist any form of change. It is defined as:
1. refusing to move or change one’s opinion;
2. the trait of being difficult to handle or overcome; resolute adherence to your own ideas or desires
Other names for stubbornness include dogged insistence, intransigence, temerity and pig-headedness.
Stubbornness is essentially an entrenched resistance to change. And given that life is all about change, stubbornness is effectively a resistance to life itself.
The person with stubbornness is driven by a fundamental resistance to being forced to do anything or experience anything against his will. The basic stance is, “No, I won’t, and you can’t make me.”
The personality with stubbornness is over-sensitive to the possibility of having sudden or unwanted change imposed upon itself, and sees the threat of it everywhere. Anything new or different or involving change is perceived (subconsciously at least) as a direct threat—even if the change in question is positive and in the person’s best interests.
Like all character flaws, stubbornness involves the following components:
1. Early negative experiences
2. Misconceptions about the nature of self, life or others
3. A constant fear and sense of insecurity
4. A maladaptive strategy to protect the self
5. A persona to hide all of the above in adulthood
