    I hate answering my phone in public and I almost never speak to someone on my cell phone in public. It just seems incredibly AWKWARD to talk to someone else about something private with a bunch of people around potentially listening (and yes- I do listen in on other people's phone conversations in public! )

    I absolutley never answer my phone when out with other people because that's just plain rude.

    Though, like evan, I also hide my monitor from others when typing online or even reading things online- I just don't like other people getting all up in my business

    And I'm pretty damned extroverted as well...

    I hate talking on the phone in public. I highly doubt it's an introvert thing. Extroverts might care less about it in general, but for different reasons.

    What are you guys like talking on the cell phone in public? Is there a correlation to preferences with something like this?

    Yea agree. If I'm in public I tend to make my sentences become slightly vaguer or I avoid saying the person on the other end's name, haha, as a strange way to keep private my conversation.

    I don't really worry about talking on the phone in public. But I do think it's funny to listen to some conversations - some people talk so loudly! At college, as soon as everyone gets out of class they've got the phone to their ear looking as if they've got some serious business to attend to. And then they open their mouths and it's about the most mediocre thing you've ever heard:

    "Yo dude! Just got outta class. I'm walking."

    I hate having to listen to them. In fact, I'll start answering the person's voice sometimes. They look over annoyed like "You're interrupting my train of thought" and that's when it hits them....on a delayed basis....yeah.

    i always go outside or in another room to talk on the phone and i absolutely will not answer it and talk to someone if i have someone over...unless maybe they are otherwise engaged for a bit.

    I usually don't want to talk on the phone to begin with but if I'm in a situation where it wouldn't be rude to answer and the conversation isn't private I don't care where I am. Chances are high that I won't answer to begin with though.
