It is when you cannot move forward, or perhaps will not; and where paralysis becomes a habit of living. Old people often fall into that trap, where laziness is misinterpreted for conviction or when we rely upon the rightness of something merely because “that is the way it has always been done,” or by waving one’s hand and saying, “That is the old way of doing things.”
Leo Strauss was a philosopher who never accepted the truth of a proposition merely because something was accepted from ancient times. Intransigence of thought, of course, can be caused by mere arrogance; often, from stupidity coupled with ignorance; and more than a few times, from sheer laziness. But paralysis of thought and the intransigence of thought (which amount to the same thing) can lead to stagnation and lack of progress.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a disabling medical condition and remain in a state of intransigence, it is often the case that the medical condition itself can result in the intransigence of thought. Moving “beyond”, or even just moving forward, by small and incremental steps, can break you out of that state of intransigence.
