Tolerance boosts one's ability to maintain positive and constructive relationships, despite encountering people who hold contrasting views. The Interpersonal Tolerance Scale is a tool designed to measure the capacity to tolerate and accept interpersonal differences. The researchers' analyses resulted in three distinct factors: warm tolerance, cold tolerance and limits of tolerance.

The Warm Tolerance dimension of the Interpersonal Tolerance Scale is useful for assessing an individual's capacity to maintain accepting attitudes toward others. This dimension helps evaluate the degree to which an individual exhibits warmth and acceptance toward those who hold different beliefs or values.
