    EDIT: I've come to realise that patience may or may not be a trait of mine depending on the perception of someone else.

    ^Definitely not true.

    Do you think you are patient. what other people think of you does not matter.

    It is evident in strongly-expressing types, those with a large J such as myself want decisions finalised, items planned in advance etc. etc. uptight crap.

    Those with a strong P can certainly improvise in the last minute with little tension placed on anyone.

    But then it depends on what sort of "patience" you are trying to describe.
    I know many Ti-dominants who become impatient with slower-thinking folks, Se-dominants who want to work at their own comfortable pace with little patience for others intervention.
    How many types of patience are there?
    Patience is just patience, like waiting things to go your way without feeling frustrated and feel the impulse to interefere.

    Kind of like fishing, and waiting for the fish to catch the bait.

    I don't think either type has patience on lock. I think P's may give a better appearance of patience, since deadlines may not mean much to them.

    P types are more interested in soaking in external information just for the sake of experiencing/learning. There doesn't need to be a reason for their inquiry and interests; the reason is in itself.

    J types are typically more interested in experiencing/learning when the inquiry can foreseeably be applied to some end goal, rather than just for the novelty of soaking in new information.

    That being said, P types can appear more patient because they are likely to be able to value (and thus enjoy) something within (what a J would consider to be) an "insignificant" moment/experience, thus giving off the appearance of "going with the flow". J types, on the other hand, are driven by an end goal, so if their actions/experiences cannot be applied to this end goal, they get antsy and want to escape this "insignificant" experience to move onto something more useful, thus appearing impatient.

    On the other hand, P types (especially EPs) are more likely to become increasingly jaded with their external environment, and they thus desire novel experiences to offer them with another interesting stimulus. Thus, they may appear/become impatient with (what a P considers to be) menial tasks, because, unlike J types, the fact that a "menial" task can be applied to a certain end goal doesn't affect or enhance their level of enjoyment with the task.

    J types are impatient with roadblocks to achievement.

    P types are impatient with roadbocks to novel experiences.

    To be honest, it's more likely that others will lose their patience with me before I do with them. I'm relentless if I value the objective enough. That's definitely a double-edged sword though.

    Edit: That's obviously on a social level though. I'm usually quick to identify if something is a waste of time in most other matters though.

    Generally, I am extremely patient. Infinitaly patient I could say.

    But not when there's something I want, something I know I can get, but external factors are prohibiting me unjustly. Then I loose my patience.
