Well I think I am a pretty patient person most of the time, but lately I haven't bean very patient, because it seems like theres always something going on in life that requires a lot of patients, for example waiting at the docters office or waiting in line at the super market, or waiting at the bus stop, but sometimes I feel like hurry up already, sometimes I just get tired of waiting and I keep trying to remind myself that patients is a verchu. Well tell me do you consider yourself a patient person?

Yes, I do, most of the time, especially since I play games that could take days/weeks/months to "solve". I can also wait a long time for something because I know I'll get what I want anyway. However, I can lose patience when my computer causes trouble and I'm not very patient with other people.

well,I think I am a patient person at most occasions,but sometimes I lose my mind and just be impatient,that leads to some bad things.in my opionion patience plays a critical role in our daily lives and we all need to remind ourselves to be more patient at some occasions

Hi ya apples99 It really does depend what the situation is. My eldest son would try the patients of a Saint believe me! I don't mind waiting in the doctors surgery, or the supermarket provided the kids are ok and I have plenty of time on my hands. I become very impatient when I am tired and cranky! On the whole though I think I have pretty good patients, I think you have to have when you have got kids!

Yes, I think I am quite patient most of the times...I believe too, that patience is a very important trait that a man should have and very good for the society! I lose my patience sometimes though, but mostly when I see someone is doing something on purpose...But, ok, also sometimes when I am in a great hurry, I might lose my patience for less important reasons, but I am trying not to do that! The most common example of me losing my patience, is when I have a morning class and I am late and running to catch the metro and I see people not keeping the rule of standing at the right side of the moving stairs!!! lol...This is very common though, but when I am in a hurry I can get very annoyed of people doing that and I can be kinda rude at this time! :p But, in the morning, incidents like that are good sometimes to wake you up for good!! :)

I am a very patient person, have always been. My training and my work before made me develop my patience more. I used to work as a special ed teacher/ occupational therapist, I've been bitten, hit, pinched by kids. I waited for results of some things, and in some cases, it takes months to achieve such results....those are just petty ones as compared to many more circumstances in my life that required patience. So yeah, I consider myself a pretty patient person!

Most of the time, I am very patient. There are those times though when I am not patient at all. Those are normally the times when I am pressed for time or have just really had a bad day.
