You may be surprised to find out that I am not a fan of the telephone. Well, not the phone itself as I love smartphones. But the act of talking to another person on the phone feels torture. I am serious when I say the only person I talk to is my husband. My family comes next. But we're not phone people. Not even when I live far from them.
While reading about the introvert personality, I found out, not being fond of phone conversations is one of the traits. I am a truly a introvert as I read more about it. I am also always unavailable on Facebook chat, Skype, YM. I cannot strike a conversation with just about anyone. I consider it small talk which is my waterloo.
It is not that I am incommunicado, there are text messages, BBM, Twitter direct messages, Facebook private messages or even e-mail messages. It's probably the urgency of a phone call and the fact that I am always in the middle of something.
However emergency situations are different. I would pick up when I see several missed calls on my phone. So please be assured I am ready to help.
So am I the only strange person who hates the phone? Share your experiences away.
