Are you more patient with your family, or with other people?

Say, in every aspect of your life... how patient are you when it comes to your loved ones? do you tend to have more patience with them than your friends or officemates? I'd say normally we have our own tolerance level right - and some are much shorter when it comes to people not very close to us - but we tend to just be more patient with our families, or bf/husband right? But what do you think about this?

I have little patience for anyone who is close to me. Regardless of relation - either work or family. As long as they are close to me then I would expect them to act with some decorum towards me, and even more towards everyone else. I, and everyone close to me, we all represent each other so I tend to be harder on the ones close to me. The ones who I don't allow to get close means I don't see much potential anyway so I don't bother they can test my patience all they want. I know this may seem brutal, but I'm just really rigid and honest. But at least I'm happy. LOL!

Generally, I have longer patience to people who are really close to me. But it still depends on the situation, when I think that they should already know how would I react to their actions or the things that I don't like and still they do it. I have short patience for that, since I believe that they should already know the things I hate.

To Honest Chiyosan I think I am more patient to others than my family because I family really knows who I am and they know what make mad or sad. So they have to more understanding about me because they are my family. If others I will just think they don't know me and I had to be more patient because I don't wanna to be mad to them. So if I mad its mean they are to far and I can not forgive them for that. Even if they sorry I tend to keep remember it and there are certain distance I created automatically. We will never as close as before.

The level of patience and tolerance for my family and friends are the same, coz I consider my friends as member of my family. I always put consideration and understanding to everyone so that the tolerance of my patience are stretched and can reached to the highest level.

i would say my patience is equal to everyone. family or loved ones, friends or officemates, i will treat them equally. same goes to my patience. if i can be patient with you it means i can do the same thing to others and via versa.

Hi, I guess I am not a patience person and I treat everyone in the same level. Be it, is my family member or friends,as long as I am out of patience, it will burst out too. Of course, my tolerance level is high too,but once it is over the limit,then it is bit hard to control my emotion.

I have a high tolerance level when it comes to being patient especially with my loved ones.But with other people it all depends with the situation.If the situation doesn't need to be patient that I can be frank to the person right away then I will do it. Why wait?right...

I think i am most patient with other people. your expectations with family members can be higher. you are more familiar with each other. Family members know just what buttons to push on each other. We lose our patience faster with the ones we love. The emotions are just stronger.

I think I am more patient with others instead of my family. That's due to the fact, they're outsiders, they don't understand me and I need to socialize well without showing unhappy or uneasy. I guess I can be who I am when I am with my family. But being less patient doesn't meant I'll show tantrum or yelling just like that. I only raise voice to them.

Patience is something that is almost a must to get through life a lot of the time. I think that people we know, we are far more patient with them sometimes because we know what to expect. Of course in many ways, we might be far less patient, because we know what to expect. I know for a fact that I do have a lot more room for patience with people I know well, because it could be awkward if I lose my patience and then have to interact with them. Of course, there is only a certain extent that we need to go, before the patience runs out. There are a lot of times where I tend to get pushed far enough and eventually I am going to lash out, to get angered about something. I try to keep my patience, but it is going to be more than difficult when we reach that point where we lose our patience. Even the most patient person has their limits and I am far from the most patient.

I always try to be patient with my friends and my family members, too. However, my patience, just like you and people in general, that there are values my patience limit that should not be violated by anyone

I am more patient with other people than with my loved ones. With people I don't know very well, I am more polite and more willing to make accomodations for them. With my loved ones, I am more at ease and tend to get irritated more often. Perhaps that means that it may not be a good idea to be someone close to me but I make up for it in other ways.

Yeah, as far as I am concerned, I think I am a little patient with my friends. I know this is not so right for me to treat my family like that. But I do can not control my temper at that time. When my friends have something to do, then I usually try my best to help them and give my best sevice to them. Maybe I should try my best to overcome it later.
