As seen in Okonkwo’s participation in Ikemefuna’s death, we see a demonstration of his rash thinking.

Okonkwo’s participation in Ikemefuna’s murder ultimately pushed Nwoye to Christianity and this caused Okonkwo to lose respect in himself for not raising a better son.

Nonetheless, many humans portray flaws, it’s just how we work and how we learn to grow.

Yet Tybalt's Stubbornness results in Lord Capulet calling Tybalt a child which angered his pride. In a sense, Tybalt was only killing in part because of the rivalry between both families.
