If you suffer from impatience, it probably means that you are a highly intelligent person. You're quick-thinking and quick-acting.
If you're suffering, it also means that you're in a negative Impatiens state, which can be damaging to you and to those around you.
Working with those who proceed at a slower pace is a constant irritant, so you're apt to become tense and irritable. From a physical standpoint, you could be prone to nervous indigestion, sudden pain due to nervous tension, and even hot flashes. You're also apt to tire quickly, simply because the stress combined with inaction is exhausting.
Are you an impatiens personality?
In addition to being highly intelligent, Impatiens personalities are independent, although they're generally open to good advice. The best jobs for them allow them to work alone, at their own fast pace. While their intelligence and efficiency often get them promoted to "higher" positions, this is not where they want to be, nor is it where they belong, because it can put them into a negative state.
Those in a negative impatiens state make very unpopular supervisors, since they'd rather just do a task themselves instead of guiding and teaching a trainee. As bosses, they tend to push employees until they become known as slave-drivers.
They make even worse teachers.
I recall a teacher I knew who was an impatiens personality in a perpetual negative state. She taught algebra, and her students suffered. Those who could grasp the concept from the book alone did well, but students who needed instruction simply ended up hating algebra. She had no patience with teaching and would berate those students for their stupidity.
Impatiens parents tend to do things for their children rather than teaching them to do for themselves – which can be extremely damaging to those children. I've known young people who didn't even know how to sew on a button, or load a dishwasher, simply because their parents didn't take the time to show them how.
Fortunately, Dr. Bach created the Impatiens flower essence to allow the impatiens personality to enjoy life with their more "laid back" co-workers, friends, and relatives
