Default Who else here is stubborn?

As the title reads. Who else is stubborn and when does your stubborn side rear it's head?

I am pretty calm, cool and collected most of the time. I go with the flow, I'm easy going... but every now and again I dig my heels into the ground and will not budge when it comes to an argument. No one takes Briggs anywhere unless I install his carseat, rearfacing, into their vehicle. It is not up for discussion. Ever. Don't like it? Tough cookies. I don't car if he is over the age, height and weight minimums to be forward facing. I have a carseat that rearfaces till 45lbs and till he maxes that weight out he will not be forward facing. Do what you want with your own children but this little monster is mine and my say is the final say.


So what about you all?

Notoriously stubborn.

I do not like to lose debates. I will take my argument to the gates of Hades, kick in the door and take up my case with the devil himself. Been working on that one.

I will also do things my way. Book says I can't do that? I'll make it work. Try me. (more often than not, I'm right. It DOES work. Might not be the best way to do that, but it works)
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not YOUR lawyer. Nothing I say should be taken as legal advice.

The Court's extensive review of these pages serves as a useful reminder that loaded guns, sharp objects and law degrees should be kept out of the reach of children.

Me. I'm really really stubborn. When I KNOW I'm right I don't give in. I hold grudges and I don't forgive easily either. I had all of my faults listed out by a relative yesterday, they're pretty fresh in my mind.

I wouldn't say stubborn. I am fairly open mindef to new ideas and can accept a different approach or opinion fairly well.

However, I do fight for what I believe in and I am passionate about it. If you want to call that stubborn, then so be it.

I am extremely stubborn. I am a Taurus, and people tell me I can be quite like the bull.

I can't think of ways in which I'm stubborn, it just comes down to the situation.

Nope. Not stubborn. Malleable as putty, which can also be not good. :P

The boyfriend is horrendously stubborn. HORRENDOUSLY. It can make for some bad clashes in feelings.

I'm not stubborn per se. But I have been called passive aggressive. I can generally get what I need in one way or another, and people still think I'm sweet. I put up a good front :P

One thing I've noticed is I hate being told what to do. Especially by those younger then me, or those high up in authority who don't know me. I'm fine with coaches and people my age or those who know me really well, but I hate being told what I can or can't do.
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

I used to be stubborn in an argumentative way, now I'm stubborn in a sarcastic kind of way. It's more annoying, and if I can't prove I'm right I will at least prove that I am more annoying.

Well . . . the few who really know both of us will tell you that Kharma and I are basically the same person. We can dig our heels in and be completely intractable, but it's going to be for a good reason (at least in our estimation) and we are pretty choosey about our battles.

Most of the time.

Or we can be knowingly capricious about them.

So yah, there's a stubborn streak, but we both try to use it for good
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. ~Buddha

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.

There are few things more nauseating than pure obedience. ~ Kvothe

I'm mildly stubborn, I would say. If I think I'm right then I'm pretty sure I'm right unless someone just has amazing logic that will prove me wrong, and even then I won't cede my point without a fight. And typically, that results in me saying, "Yes, I understand and what you are saying makes perfect sense, but so does what I'm saying." LOL

If I really want something, then I dig in my heels and won't give it up. I have mastered the art of compromising, though, so while I still get what I want the other person feels like they have accomplished something, too.

And I'm also a bit contrary. If someone says, "You wouldn't do XYZ" I am always tempted to do XYZ just to prove them wrong. LOL "You wouldn't just drive away and leave me here." "TRY ME."
