From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Patience (or forbearance) is the ability to go through difficult times without getting mad. Patience may involve focus and without any emotional response relating to disrespect/anger.

In psychology, patience is studied as a decision-making problem, involving the choice of either a small reward in the short-term, versus a more valuable reward in the long-term.[1]
