    Compulsively. Even if I'm avoiding the person who's calling. The ringing, man, the ringing...

    And I'm ENTP.

    And I hate talking on the phone, too. So idk why I do it.

    But I don't listen to Voicemail. Ever.

    Unhappy `

    I know I'm starting to feel used because I have several friends that exchanged numbers, myspace
    and email addresses and never initiated conversation or bothered to reply to anything and very few period that actually think I need somebody outside of work and other settings to actually do
    stuff with.

    I can't stand always being reachable. Don't have a landline and I rarely bring my cell with me when I'm socializing - but during my business hours, I compulsively text. I hate voice mails (unless I'm dating you) and I generally wait and listen to them like 2x per month. Drives folks insane, but I don't care.

    Plus, I drop that damn thing so often that I'm without a phone 40% of the time.

    I answer my cell phone most of the time, but generally only my girlfriend/close friends call it. In terms of the home phone, I almost never answer it.

    On a related note, I despise talking on the phone to people whom I don't know very well.
    Hands in the air, it's a robbery.

    I'm an xsfp. (yea, still not sure.)

    I answer my phone depending on my mood.
    Some days I won't get away from my phone.
    Other days whenever it rings I cringe and let them leave a message.

    my voice mail developped evolution and intelligent life forms in a rushless battle for limited memory ressources.
    I believe that one day the overmind 'll try to initiate contact with its creator.
    I won't answer of course, I never do.


    maybe we all exist in somebody's voice mail?

    I switch my phone on silent so I never have to answer it. I look at my missed calls and occasionally return some of them. If my cellphone runs out of batteries I tend to leave it that way for days.


    I think I might be an ENTP.

    It depends on my mood. If I don't feel like talking, I'll usually unplug it.


    And my voice mail stacks up so much! After it fills up, I'll usually just delete all of the messages at once. It's easier than going through them. I figure people will call back if it matters.

    Because most people don't seem to understand what a telephone is for.



    It's worth noting that if the other person is interested in talking about anything that warrants an hourlong conversation, I'm more than happy to talk. But that's not what happens.
