    Do you answer the phone...

    Yes. Unless it's an intrusion. If I have just sat down to eat and am starved, I'll let the machine get it. I don't want to feel bothered by someone I like. I always check the machine. Since I mostly freelance, the phone is a rather important feature for my eventual income. Tons of scheduling of gigs and teaching.

    Do you answer your phone?
    Almost never, unless I'm expecting a call (rarely). All my friends know to leave me a message on msn instead (I don't even give my number out)...so the only people who call are family and telemarketers. I haven't figured out which one is worse. I also never check my messages because they're never for me and I know someone else will check them.

    And what type are you?

    Yes, because it's the family phone and I thus cannot turn the ringing off.:steam:

    Do you answer your phone?
    I'm usually the only one in the house who will answer the phone. If it's a friend or family and I'm not really busy, I will normally answer. I love caller ID and don't use an answering machine. I don't like listening to the messages.

    And what type are you?

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Do you answer your phone?

    My phone rings so rarely, I get an angry visceral feeling when it ting-a-lings. I HATE talking on the phone and resent being interrupted, unless the call has a specific purpose (as in, "This is Crate and Barrel calling; your chairs will be delivered tomorrow"). Thank you. Click. Buh-bye.

    I have called ID because I want to know who I am ignoring.

    The phone (like my mobile) is for my convenience. If someone needs to track me down that desperately, they can call the cops.

    I will pick up my cell, as very few people call me on it and it is usually something important, or semi-important.

    My home phone however, can ring until doomsday and I won't pick it up. I want to be left alone at home. Most people who call me there usually want something from me, even if it is only to waste my time. Some times I will screen the caller ID, but only if I'm not engaged in something else.

    My ISFJ wife will pick up almost every call. As stated earlier, it took me years to make her realize that it was her responsibility if she picked up ... and not to transfer it to me. She has a rather large family, so most of the calls are for her anyway.

    We never pick up the phone (thank you, caller id) unless we recognize the number. Even then, we may or may not answer it.

    Yep. I don't even answer for friends unless I truly am in the mood to talk to them right at that time. They all know this about me and I'm sure they find it a little quirky, but it hasn't made anybody mad yet. Unless they're silently fuming about it, which seems like a personal problem to me.

    Yes, because the ringing is annoying and the people will scream at me about it eventually if I don't. Usually, I'm expecting the call too, or I told them to call me. But if I'm in the shower, I will NEVER, NEVER pick up the phone.
