Tranquil? I'm quite sure Bob (whose latest description of me is of a cartoon character that has wheels where my feet should be, always scooting around from one thing to the next) and those who've had to work with me would disagree with that. And, you know, exactly how tranquil can someone who reads those results and thinks "What it, it says about you, not is," be? However, the "inner me" would love to be tranquil. Patience is another matter. I do not suffer fools gladly. Nor do I suffer things that don't work properly without my having to read OED-length operation manuals gladly. I'm more likely to throw something across the room than to keep trying to understand it until I've mastered it. However, if you all want to admire my fresh outlook and vitality, well then, by all means, please go right ahead.
