The Patience Questionnaire is a psychometric tool designed to assess an individual's capacity for patience in various life scenarios. Drawing from the premise that patience is a multi-dimensional construct, this questionnaire dissects patience into three categories: interpersonal, life hardship, and daily hassles patience.

Respondents are presented with a series of hypothetical scenarios or self-reflective statements related to each category. Through this, practitioners and individuals can pinpoint specific areas of improvement and understand the facets of patience that are either strengths or weaknesses.
