I can't speak for your specific case, but I would guess that stubborness would indeed work against you. The rules for single cofounders work the same as for teams: call out YC when they incorrectly correct something you know to be valid (and back it up) but if the criticism/idea they inject is good then roll with it and riff on it with them. You'd do the same, presumably, if you were chatting with your entrepreneur friends... I'm not sure it's really that different; it's basically a panel of hackers :)

I wasn't aware of them suggesting anything that I dismissed. It's my policy to consider every suggestion, be it from users or not, and I don't recall them suggesting anything...

Applications are open for YC Summer 2019
