Definition
not bendable or adaptable
in various senses, including:
  • not willing to compromise or make concessions — as when a boss says "Do it my way or you're fired."
  • not able to adjust well to different conditions — as of a schedule that cannot be changed
  • not easily bent without physical damage or injury — as of brittle steel or person with stiff joints
  • Mr. Phillips might not be a very good teacher; but a pupil so inflexibly determined on learning as Anne was could hardly escape making progress under any kind of teacher.
