    I think that most people are so stressed with life they have zero tolerance for anything. People who do not understand about behavioural origins and basic psychology, have no idea how they act. Tolerance like many things in life needs to be understood and worked on. Everyone is capable, but not many choose to be, mostly out of ignorance.

    Great question , Intolerance is just a another weakness , a failure in maturing and understanding. There is so much passive aggressive behavior out there. Its all a matter of maturity.

    I am not sure exactly what type of tolerance this question is about.. I can assume, but given the general scope of it I am going to say there are many things I do not tollerate in my life as a matter of choice, and it is often very obvious what they are. I show my intolerance as a means of voicing my opinion, sometimes in hopes of a change of actions or situations, other times just because I am easily read.
    IF, on the other hand, the question is based on a matter of race, religion, or someone elses choice and thought in life or their path in it... I believe it is as Ahorseback said a matter of maturity to allow someone else to be what and who they are no matter their choice. The only exception would be if anothers actions were to endanger someone else, that then slips into the no tolerance zone.

    Well I have to voice my opinion here. Sometimes rather then showing intolerance, I wish more could take the time to educate when needed. However, we have a saying sometimes at work....You can't fix stupid and it will kill you. I hate to be pesimistic, but some don't even use common sense! Either way I don't want to be surrounded by know it alls, and I do wish people would be more tolerant. I guess to sum it up , it depends on the situation!!
