    Do you answer your phone?

    A lot of the time it rings and I don't hear it because I'm busy, away from the phone, playing music, I'm at work or school, etc.; and then I forget to call people back. But if I'm there and hear it ringing, and it's not my mother, I answer it because I like my rare moments of social interaction. That said I don't really like talking on the phone for long periods of time. I prefer face to face interaction. Holding the phone and trying to do things is awkward, and then there's that awkward time of wanting to hang up and not knowing if it's the right time. I particularly don't like talking to my mother on the phone because 1) she's loud and boring, 2) she asks me a bunch of silly questions I don't want to think about like what someone else is doing, 3) she's constantly giving me pushy unsolicited advice, 4) if something is going on she'll call me like 5 times in a day, and 5) she usually calls at inopportune moments such as I'm carrying something and about to unlock the front door, driving, in class, about to take a shower, thinking intensely about something, you get the idea.

    And what type are you?
    That's the question, isn't it? I think I'm INTP, but there are a lot of people who seem to think I'm an F. So INXP/INTX.

    My reasoning is generally not havin the patience to listen to meaningless rambling. Sometimes anxiety over expecting the worst that can not be controlled.
    I ignore perhaps 80% of calls...But I tend to be very honest with people when giving out my # that when you call, probably I wont pick up... unless its veryyy urgent!! This way, I wont feel guilty about ignoring calls...

    I actually got that from a conversation I had a few days ago. An etype 2 was having problems with presenting herself professionally when she entered a room (looking confident, introducing herself ect.), and someone else suggested that she use ordering a pizza over the phone as practice, trying to sound professional while arranging a tracsaction with somebody you don't know.

    from there the conversation turned into how nobody answers their phone.

    (funny enough we actually did prder pizza that night, but we did it online since nobody wanted to call XP)

    Only if it meets these conditions:
    1. I hear it
    2. I know who it is or expecting a call from some company
    3. I want to talk to the person

    If it fails any of those 3; I don't answer. :p My type is INTP.

    Not usually. But I'm flaky as hell.

    Rarely. I hate talking on the phone if I can help it. I greatly prefer text messages for communication if face-to-face communication is not an option.

    Don't like talking to people on the phone. Except my mom, and sometimes my husband.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I really don't like standing up when comfortable. If it is comfortably located.

    Understood. But do you know why you feel that way?

    Get the Voxer App- the best of both worlds for those who don't like a phone call but don't want to type it out.
