Rigidity is the inability to easily change the position, opinion, actions in accordance with the situation. From the Latin language, this word means inflexibility, rigidity, hardness. A rigid person uses a permanent set of strategies, many of which are often outdated, but does not accept new ones, clearly follows the rules and norms, does not allow himself to go beyond the framework of the only right thing. An illustration of rigidity can serve as an example of the road that a person urgently needs to go. The nearest traffic light or the transition is far away, the road is empty, excellent visibility, visibility and illumination, crossing the road now is not dangerous. However, a rigid person will feel a great internal obstacle to breaking the rules, going to a safe, even if not fixed, place. He goes to a distant transition, wasting time, strength, perhaps, being late even losing a new opportunity, just to follow the need to be right.
In life, rigidity greatly prevents a person from allowing himself to have fun, to be happy, because he believes that short-term desires do not deserve his attention. A certain degree of rigidity is peculiar to everyone, the psyche is inclined to get used to the pattern for saving forces, which is reinforced by the beaten paths of neuron connections.
