Default Talking on the phone or texting?

Do you prefer talking on the phone or is texting better?

I generally don't like talking on the phone. I sometimes have trouble understanding the other person and I get anxious. Texting may be less personal but for me it's an easier way to get the point across.

However, talking in person would be superior to everything else, IMO.

I always prefer to talk on the phone, but I like the convenience of texting, I was anti-texting until my daughter went away to college, it's nice being able to send and receive quick little texts from/to her from day to day.

Depends on the person I'm communicating with. Some people I like to text, some I like to talk.

Talking on the phone if there's a lot to be said. Texting if it's a short conversation, I hate texting over 2 sentences. My sister-in-law will text paragraphs and then run out of room and send another text before I can read through the first one.

The older I become the less I enjoy texting, so I prefer talking on the phone.

100% texting. I will talk on the phone if I have to but I like it less and less. It's much more convenient to text, especially in situations when it's not an option to talk on the phone. I've found that my clients are starting to prefer texting as well.

Definitely talking, I will text brief messages to family members if I know they're not able to talk at the moment, but I can't stand the auto correct feature especially when it corrects words that I know are right to start with.

For the most part... talking. I will use texting as well, but I'm more of a talker...unless I talk to my dad...he talks more than I do...
