    And by all means, if you are an Introvert that is not bothered by cell-phones, then speak up.
    Karaoke?

    Speed dating?

    Actually, I'm sure karaoke and other venues for performance helps really introverted but otherwise spotlight hungry individuals.

    Some performers are (almost) painfully awkward to the point of being obnoxious around others but really shine (and are truly obnoxious) on stage.

    I think I might enjoy speed dating because it's five minutes and you never have to say "I don't want to see you again."

    But we NTs are the fathers of technology. And we're those really bad, uninvolved kinds of fathers. Designing and refining cellphones is fun. Using them is someone else's problem.


    I hate phones of all types (wireless or wired). If someone's in close physical proximity, they can see if you're in the middle of something and wait until you're free to bother you. But with a telephone, people invariably call right in the middle of something, and yet you're expected to drop what you're doing and talk to them right now.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    Coteaching. When you have special ed students in your classroom you're supposed to have a special ed teacher with you. But the special ed teacher doesn't just teach the special ed students. Noooooo. The special ed teacher has to COTEACH. Which means you're a TEAM. You have to plan together, teach together, and grade papers together. Negotiate every blasted thing. It takes twice as long to get stuff done with another person wanting to talk it all over. No longer "my classroom"--it's now "our classroom". I've heard so many extroverts piping up with enthusiasm, "Everything is better when you're a TEAM, right?" Wrong. *grumble*

    I don't have a cell phone, either. Nor an answering machine, nor call waiting.

    I used to think that they waited. Since I've been teaching, I've learned better. Students expect you to drop everything and talk to them--NOW!--even when what they have to say is a random useless comment. Perhaps it's their close affiliation with cell phones that makes them assume everyone is ready to talk to them at any moment.

    Spam. Really hurts a nice introvert way of communicating.

    Study Groups. At least for me, it's much simpler to just learn the stuff on my own.

    Some Chat Rooms, blog comments, etc. Makes it very hard to get noticed unless you say something right away, and information goes by so quickly that it is hard to mull over stuff and respond later in a way that makes sense.

    You can solve most of your cell phone problems by getting less friends. Works for me!

    Although you could just turn it off or not have one at all, but then you'd just be a loser.

    I do not have a cell phone. Never needed one. I also hate those GPS units appearing in cars now, that literally tell you where to go as you drive. Mapquest/Google maps is good. I can plan my route and print the maps I need, then take them to any car I happen to be in, even as a passenger, and make my own decisions about which way to go. I've heard GPS units tell drivers the strangest, even stupidest routes to take. One look at a paper map or atlas is all it takes, but it seems map reading is becoming a lost skill, along with mending clothes and cooking food from scratch.
