Are You Stubborn?

Are you the kind of person who takes a stand and then won't back down? Are you set in your ways and resistant to change? Do you refuse to admit that you're wrong, or have a hard time compromising if it means you won't get your way?

Sure, being a little stubborn shows that you have confidence and self-respect, and that you don't let people walk all over you, but there is such a thing as being too strong willed. I'm pretty darn stubborn, it runs in the family, but where do you fall on the stubborn scale? Are you completely inflexible when it comes to bending your views or giving up on your desires? Does it matter what the issue is or who you're dealing with? Or are you a total pushover and pretty much give in immediately?

I feel stubborness can be very unhealthy, it can make you bitter eventually.I have a sister who wont talk to me out of stubborness( bitterness), it has split a family......So I would be careful on being stubborn it doesn't prove any thing but being selfish......

BeachBarbie ,That is a perfect reason to be stubborn. I hope you sent his ass to jail too! *Hugs* :)Scandalous04,How someone chooses to define their self is not stupid, and not open to judgment. Did you post to answer the question or just castigate someone???

To the person who said "I'm a taurus so I'm stubborn." Stupidest thing I've ever heard. You're gonna actually let your "sign" describe who you are? Create that for yourself; don't rely on the fact that your sign says something about you when you can make yourself how eveer you want to be.

Sometimes. I just pick my battles much more selectively, now. I don't like drama. But, if it's something I'm extremely passionate about..we may just have to agree to disagree. And, I'm totally fine with that. I really like getting along with everyone. And, I haven't lost any friends over it. Oh, except one couple (who I no longer speak to at all), that live down the street. When I was sexually assaulted, by there renter, they choose to believe the young idiot pervert guy, who btw., was an alcoholic drug user, over me! Can you even imagine!!? And btw., the couple are older than my husband and myself. So, in this instance I'm extremely stubborn, and should have called the police. What awesome neighbors, huh? Oh, and the pervert was around 25 -27 years old. And, I was probably 37 at the time. So, yes, I can be stubborn when it counts, and I should be. You have to have some respect for yourself, or else people will run all over you. It's a shame, though. It would be so nice if everyone respected everyone else. (Btw., my remark was probably TMI..but it feels good just saying..what I said. So, I apologize if I offended anyone.)

I can be very stubborn! Sometimes I back down when it's over something petty and not worth the time fighting over. However when I have a set opinion and want to do things my way, I can get very testy with people. Being stubborn runs in the family and I'm also a Taurus; so I've go a double-dose of it,lol.

This is the one complaint I get from my boyfriend "You never back down!" is usually thrown in a fight. It's endearing and also hated by everyone around me. I'm German so we're known to be very stubborn and strong willed. I will admit if I'm wrong but will fight to the death if I truly believe in something or know I'm right.

Yes. I also need an outlet for it or it will wreak havoc in my daily life. So I exercise like a fiend, work as an advocate, and am working towards a JD, these are my outlets for the stubbornness. My SO is worse, we are a Taurus and Scorpio couple, so that's why we never argue. But we do out stubborn each other for the win. :)

this will probably sound bad to u, but im almost always right! i dont act or react on impulse, i think things through and i make decisions based on whats right and wrong, so yea usually im stubborn about my decisions and actions. BUT if i dont know something or am not sure i will always say so. if i do something wrong, i am willing to apologize.

I remember growing up and my dad would always blame me or my sister for losing things, when most of the time, it was him. He refused to ever admit he was wrong and I always complained to my mom about it.Fast forward and I'm the exact same. haha - funny how that happens. I also probably wouldn't have been as stubborn as I am if my boyfriend didn't let me get away with it in the beginning. haha - He knows I'm stubborn and rolls his eyes, but he always lets me get my way.I'm sorry that I'm never wrong... O:-) (jk jk jk jk)
