Usually I will excuse myself and switch over, but cell phones are not as good with giving you time to do so.
    I don't answer my home phone, but I usually answer my cell phone. Only people I care about have that number. If someone I'd rather be talking to calls I'll get off the phone with the person I'm talking to. I just say it's my mother.

    DO NOT CALL
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I used to pick up every call however now I figure if they really want me they'll call back or leave a message. That doesn't always work tho...Once I had 48 messages dating back about a month.
    I lost my cell phone for three months and did NOTHING about replacing it. I hate talking on the phone. If it's someone far away or someone I haven't spoken to in a long while I'll talk...but just talking for the sake of talking. Nope. If I have something important to relate...I call, if not it can wait until I see you. I definately not a social call maker.
    for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.

    Wow. You have managed to stun me, Littlelostnf. I'd never thought an extravert would dislike talking on the phone so much.

    Really.

    On more than one occasion I have begged my ISFJ wife to not get up and answer the phone. Finally, after 18 years of marriage, she's let it go a couple times.

    More and more and more confirmation every day that I am not an ISFJ. Leastways not a conventional one (and is there any other kind?).

    Edit: this is mostly tongue-in-cheek.

    I almost always run to pick up the phone, unless it's an 888 number. I actually felt worried and guilty that I didn't reach the phone in time once because my hands were full. I have a phone right by the bed in case someone calls me in the middle of the night. Sometimes I even talk to the telemarketers, and tell them that I'm satisfied with my current services, and offer suggestions about how they could improve their offer. In fact, I wish people (not telemarketers) would call more often.

    I'm most likely an INFJ, and even if I'm not, I'll stick with that because I'm used to the idea.

    Depends completely on my current mood, sometimes I want conversation so I will answer, and sometimes I will just cut off everyone and not answer, or be indisposed should my brother answer it.

    I haven't switched the ringer off in awhile as only important people get my house number, and the mobile I can just ignore as it's caller id.
