When it comes to patience it is the women who succed men in all aspects. Not just this they have imense will power too and can resist all sorts of lures.Do you agree in that women have more will power and patience

well, it does seem like that. women are more patient than men. except maybe me. maybe because women are more showy than men and probably had let out any steam before it piles up thus when new challenges come they have room for it. ability or immense will to resist lures? women? take them to the mall...

I really think so that women are more patient. Like in a family they say that the mothers are the ones who nurture and builds the character of the kid because women are more patient than men. Also in my experience now with my son, I have noticed that men are just plain unpatient when it comes to little things that kids do. They really do not have the patience to teach them step by step stuff. Thus, I can atest that women are very patient and that is why we are considered the ones who nurture children.

Yes I do agree that women are way more patient than men. I have seen a few men also but unfortunately they are just a FEW of them. We often have to bear what a man cannot ever think of. Probably because Allah (swt) has made us that way and our asian up-bringing is more sort of a training to us to be more polite and patient.

Depends on the issue at hand. I've seen women that were incredibly patient over things that would drive me nuts. I've also seen women incredibly impatient with their husbands over relatively minor issues. Of course that's perspective too. Things I'd consider minor, a women may consider major. The reverse also being true. One women was patient working with her husband who was addicted to (dirty web sites). Which to me is a big deal. Another women left her husband because he didn't take her out to eat on Valentines day. Which to me is minor. Depends on the issue at hand.

I don't think that is true, I think it just depends on the person. I am generally more patient than my wife about most things. As for willpower, I don't think women have that much. Just wave a pastry around one and you'll see, some things they cannot resist

to some degree i guess. i know myself, i am so not a patient person most of the time, even with my own kids! i guess i was when they were younger but these days i find that i have so much to do, i just dont have the time to be patient.

I think that it all just depends. I am a very impatient person, and when it comes to willpower I can't be sure how much I can really say that I have. I guess people might think that women are more patient because they've tuned shopping into a hobby, or sport that takes a long time and practice, lol. Sorry if I've confused you at all!

My partner has a lot more patience than I do for most things in life. I am full of lots of energy and have a NOW NOW NOW attitude. Sometimes it is great when I am the one who has the control to get things done, however, it has messed me up having to wait for other people to do things. I have to work on that though cause it has made things difficult in my relationships.

no, and this is solely on my personal experience. I could say that just because im more impatient compared to my husband.

I think we have to be more patient. We are wives, mothers, housekeepers (unless you have one of those wonderful husbands that helps out), counselors, nurses, etc. Plus we have to deal with the men. :)
