He could not walk at all because of his birth defects, but his brother slowly but surely taught him how to first stand up, and then walk. Doodle accomplished an impossible feat.

Biff blamed Willy for this, telling him that he “...never got anywhere because you blew me so full of hot air I could never stand taking orders from anybody!” (Miller 131). Also, Willy’s inability to accept anything deviating from what he wanted to hear led to Biff not being able to talk to his father candidly. Willy never allowed Biff to expose the truth - he constantly reminded Biff how smart, successful, and liked he was, so much so that Biff never had the chance (or the confidence and heart) to tell him all of this was not true.
