There are problems with the list. Not all dogs are Labradors, and not all Labradors are dogs. Not all Argentines are guitarrists, and not all guitarrists are Argentines. And so it is with the terms in the list.
"Mulish" is possible, but it certainly isn't common. Some other terms are also rarely heard or read.
Someone can be an ass, asshole, uncooperative, intolerant, a hardnose, unflexible, closed-minded, fanatic, deaf to the advice of others, etc. without being stubborn. What does being a maverick have to do with being stubborn? I could ask the same question about most of the terms. And one can be stubborn without being an ass, asshole, uncooperative, intolerant, a hardnose, unflexible, closed-minded, fanatic, deaf to the advice of others, etc. What I am saying is that, despite being found in a thesaurus, most of these terms are NOT interchangeable with the word "stubborn".
It's just a personal opinion, but...
