Intractability is the quality of being hard to manage or control. In many cases, it is defined as the degree to which a problem or issue is resistant to negotiation, compromise, or other forms of interaction. Intractability may be the result of various factors, including the difficulty of the problem itself, the strength of opposing forces, or the difficulty of reaching a consensus. In some cases, intransigent individuals may be motivated by a desire to achieve their goals unilaterally, regardless of the consequences.
