    I don't have a cell phone.. haven't for 6 months, when I realised the cost/benefit ratio wasn't satisfying. I have a house phone, but I haven't given the number to anyone yet.

    Oops.. I didn't answer the question.

    I would always answer it.

    That's funny because I am an ENFP and I have been accused of being the 'queen of screen'. I used to not answer the phone except for a few close friends. This was when I had a fair bit of social anxiety and not a lot of self-confidence. I don't have such resistance to answering my phone now. Also at this transitional stage in my life, I don't need a cel. phone but I'm stuck with my plan, so I have it at the cheapest rate possible which they only give out to 'loyal customers'.

    CzeCze, I've struggled with social anxiety as well. That might have something to do with my phone phobia.

    I have to make a confession:

    when I make necessary phone calls, I'm often relieved if the other party's answering machine picks up.

    Do you answer your phone?

    90% of the time I do. If I'm busy, I will pick up the phone and say that I'm busy and ask if I can call back the person later.

    And what type are you?

    I never answer the phone, my mother and brother know to ring twice to get a response.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    I hate talking on the phone but I probably answer it more than most of you do. If somebody is genuinely trying to get ahold of me for any reason, I offer them the respect of at least answering the phone, hearing what they want, and then telling them that I'm busy or that I don't want to talk. If it's my girlfriend, I'll happily answer. Everybody else knows that I won't sit and chat on the phone, so they only call to set up a meeting time or for something else that's very quick.

    I will never get out of bed to answer the phone. And obviously I won't answer if I'm right in the middle of something important. (But I always call back when I get the chance.) I don't get many phone calls so it's easy to manage.

    I'm an ENTP, or possibly a very cool INTP.

    Anybody who would call 5 times in a row needs some kind of professional help! Call once, leave a message, and wait! I used to say that in my voicemail and everybody thought it was funny, and mean. I think everybody that calls me knows me well enough not to ever call twice in a row.
