Feeling impatience is not the same as losing your cool.

Frustration isn't quite the same either, but it's closer.

I would like to someday apply this test to applicants for a management
position:

It's as bogus and unfair to the people it's applied to as any other
personality test in use today, but what the heck, it's not as if managers
are really people, right?
