What is a hardened heart?

Joshua 11:20 (ESV)

20 For it was the LORD’s doing to harden their hearts that they should come against Israel in battle, in order that they should be devoted to destruction and should receive no mercy but be destroyed, just as the LORD commanded Moses.

A person with a hard heart is intractable, stubbornly resistant to outside influences.1
