only 1 use
(click/touch triangles for details)
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
The early climbers established paths that were on firm ground with an accessibility that appealed to all, but today the Western routes are all but closed because of dogmatic inflexibility in the face of change.
