How to use "Inwardness" in context?

Inwardness is the apparent inability or unwillingness of a person or thing to take in or embrace new ideas, experiences, or information. Outwardly, people may appear open to new experiences but inwardly they may be resistant, fearful, or even blocked from developing new perspectives or ideas.

Resistance to change could be one underlying cause of inwardness. People who are inwardly resistant to change often maintain static views of the world and keep rigid boundaries between themselves and others. They are resistant to exploration and learning because they fear change and new challenges. They also may be uncomfortable with change because they feel they are not in control.
