I agree completely with the above answer, as it refers physically. In psychiatry, it refers to being overly concerned with keeping control and refusing help and suggestions. It also refers to someone (rigid) as unwilling to change, even if the person knows change will better his life. Examples: control freaks, "my way or the highway" thinking, etc.
