What's "lean" mean here? Is this metaphorically used?
Answer from a Native speaker
It is a metaphorical use of "lean." You're right! Here, "lean" means to agree more with or to be in favor of something compared to something else. Ex: I'm leaning towards having chicken for dinner rather than pizza. Ex: I lean more on the side of action movies rather than rom-coms.
