Fallen man by nature is impatient. If that wasn't the case, one of the Fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) wouldn't have been patience. The degree to which he is impatient varies, however. People who suffer from severe impatience are often considered arrogant, insensitive, overbearing and egocentric. Impatience can have far-reaching effects at both the personal and interpersonal levels, as well as at the professional and career levels. No matter how you view it, impatience is a problem.
