I answer mine. After all, why have a phone in the first place if I don't use it? Do I make many calls? No. Do I receive many calls? No. But I answer it unless it's some weird number from another area code.
I know this might be a bit of a surpirse but I don't really answer my phone that much despite my love of people and communication however, when I do answer BEWARE cos I talk for HOURS Anyone fancy givng me a ring?? HAHAHA
... couldn't drag me away

I answer the phone if a)I can ID who it is before I pick it up and b)I want to talk to them. I never pick up numbers I can't identify, because it's usually the shithead bank calling to jerk me around with some new product or another.

If I can find it and have remembered to turn the ringer (back) on. My phone is one of the major sources of sensotard moments for me. Not only do I have difficulty figuring out how and when to answer it, but I also have this really cool trick where I call a half dozen people without realizing I've done so. I usually find out right about the time I plug it in for the night and see the gazillion or so frantic texts from friends wondering whether I'm okay. (It's an iPhone and I'm an iDiot)
