SCORE:

  • 0-4 Points... you tend to be impatient, so ask yourself whether saving a minute or two is really worth it if it hurts the feelings of others. Start enjoying life a little more. Extreme impatience can have a basis in physical problems... anemia, vitamin deficiency, poor sleeping or eating habits.
  • 5-7 Points... You're even tempered with good self control. You realize that many delays and inconveniences turn out to be no one else's fault. But there is a limit to your toleration of the vices and manipulations of other people.
  • 8-10 Points... You are extremely patient and don't demand instant gratification at the expense of others. You enjoy completing every job. You're very tolerant... almost TOO tolerant... so guard against people who might take advantage of your good nature.
