The essence

People who respond positively to Impatiens are impatient and usually under high tension. They are quick in thought and action, often hectic and can hardly bear it when someone is slower than they. Then it can happen that they intervene without regard to the consequences, because they think they are better and faster.

This makes them difficult to bear for other people since they fit poorly into the group dynamic and rather seek to impose their own pace on the group. This can lead to a backlash of the group or family members, it may raise a quarrel, or they withdraw at last. The end result is an impatient person standing alone.


Impatiens gives inner peace, it does not change the rhythm of the individual, but makes it easier to accept when others choose their own speed. It helps to calm down, rediscovers one‘s social conscience, become sociable and friendly.
