Hi everybody! I keep meeting guys in Poland that I would best describe as dogmatic in English. I'm talking about men who are so convinced that their way is the only way of viewing things, so much that it leaves no room for discussion. Any other perspective is considered to be almost heretical. Often this is related to religious views. New Oxford American Dictionary's definition is excellent: dogmatic |dɒgˈmatɪk|adjectiveinclined to lay down principles as incontrovertibly true : he gives his opinion without trying to be dogmatic. I found in my Polish/English dictionary that the word dogmatyczny does in fact exist in Polish. But I wanted to know if the average Pole would understand this word or if it is such a rarely-used word that I would be better off replacing it with a synonym. Thanks for your help! P.S. Please know that I'm not stereotyping Polish men this way. I'm describing a very specific type of men I keep running into in my current circumstances. In general, my experiences with Polish men have been very positive.
