  • I HATE talking on the phone

    I don't know why it is, other than I much prefer to see facial expression, body language, other general reactions --- I'm good at talking to people face to face, but I HATE talking on the phone. I'm BAD about returning phone calls, but I'll text, email, send smoke signals....

    Anybody else like this?

    I'm like that too. Except for my wife and mother. If I want to talk to either of them and it's not possible to do in person I'd rather just do it over the phone. I'm not sure why, maybe I just feel comfortable enough.

            I'm the opposite - I'd rather hear a voice than see a text.

              I'd rather talk to someone in person than on the phone and talk to them on the phone than write.

              I'm always still in trouble again

                I don't like talking on the phone. I'd rather correspond by email or talk face to face.

                  A major advantage to email is it eliminates the expectation for small talk.

                      Sometimes a quick face-to-face talk can clear up issues much better than email exchanges, however.

                        and there is less likely to be a permanent written record of it.

                            Much prefer face to face. Avoid telephone when I can.
                            Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                              Do you ever communicate by typing stuff?
