Patience
OnePoll

Patience is a virtue, a popular phrase says, and this stands true in every walk of life. Patience gives way to remarkable results and it can lead to positive recognition. A well-rounded leader sets himself apart from others by mastering the skills of patience and not giving up. Patience also helps you avoid making impulsive decisions and teaches you self-control, calmness and humility. A study conducted by parcel and postage comparison website Interparcel.com, earlier this year has revealed some interesting findings regarding the limits of British patience:

Key Takeaways:

  • British people can wait up to 10 seconds for a web page to load
  • They are only willing to wait up to 13 minutes for a delayed train
  • They will wait up to 16 seconds for an online video to buffer
  • 50% of British people have noticed they have become more impatient in the last five years
  • Almost a third of British people (30%) sit still in traffic before considering another route
  • Men are more likely to describe themselves as “very patient”  compared with women.
