Daily Video Vocabulary Episode 47 :

Rigid :

There are certain things in life which are hard to change; it could be an idea ,a thought or even a habit.

Rigid basically means something that is not flexible or just does not change. When you are unable to bend or move something, that means, it is rigid.

For example, When your boss is very particular about the way the office functions and doesn't wish to change or bend the rules and regulations under any circumstances, that means he is a rigid man. Rigid also means something that is not flexible and is not going to change , no matter what happens.

When you are stiff or unable to move because of a strong emotion such as anger or fear, it means you are rigid.

As the word rigid describes something that is incapable of change, it is an adjective.

Example 01 Maria forced Sam to dance in the party, as he was standing rigid like a statue.

Example 02 : fresh graduates, today prefer working in an MNC, instead of taking up a Government job, due to their rigid rules and orthodox way of working.

Example 03 : When the little girl saw the road accident take place, she was rigid with fear.

Example 04 : Mac computers are always trusted for their rigid performance.

Example 07 : To keep growing personally and professionally, one must not be rigid as it restricts growth.
