Patience is determined by anger, not behavior following. The behavior following relates to attitude most likely of circumstance. Both patience and attitude can be learned. To not be artificial it must be natural. So, yes patience can reflect upon an artificial attitude IMO.
For instance I am diabetic a chronic illness. It won't go away. I love snickers chocolate bars. At one time I could eat them anytime I wished. When I first couldn't I would be angry or I lost patience with my medical condition. My attitude was forget it I am eating one.
Today, I know I can eat the small one smack dab middle two meals as a snack (Carb count stuff). My patience at first did not change because I was still angry about it. But, I developed an artificial attitude limiting when to eat one and how big.
Today, my patience has changed. I am no longer angry with my condition. Matter of fact when I have a sudden drop in blood glucose levels I smile because I can have a regular size Snicker Bar to boost it back up. Hooray!! But, today people lose patience with me. They are angered when I don't eat there delicately prepared desert. Go figure.
