Are you a kind of "caller" type or the one that is being "called" ?

Hey there! Today I was messing with my cell phone and decided to take a look at the total duration of the calls. I found that incoming calls were 1h 33min long in total, and the calls I made, the outgoing ones, had a duration of 2h 18min. It seems that I am a "caller" type of person, because I've called others much more than received the calls. What about you? Check your mobile phone for statistics and tell me, are you the "caller" or the "called"?

hi! I think I am the one that being called, just because my outgoing call time is 33 min. for the last month and my incoming call time is 2 and a half hours which is about five times more than the outgoing calls. maybe just because the people that mostly call me are my parents and my aunt, her daughter and my grandmother. just because they have "free" minutes each month and I don't :)

Well yes, you're obviously a "the called" one. Free minutes are useful, I used to have them every month before I've changed my mobile communications operator. I used to call a lot without a real need back then, but now, when I haven't any free minutes anymore, I call only when I really need to. Thanks for a good answer, happy myLotting!:)

Hey friend, I use my cellphone just in case anyone needs me, not for myself. You may be surprised but I don't need it for myself. I can stay all alone without any problem by the grace of Allah. I call people very few times. That's why my call amount shows that the duration of my received calls are 98:48:51 and dialed calls are 34:06:39. Therefore, I I'm definitely the 'called' Have a nice day.

Hey, mate and thanks for your response! I know see what you mean, you have your phone just to be sure that people can catch up with you anywhere anytime. And that is indeed a good side of the cell phone - you don't depend on your current location. People can always get you by the cell phone. Thanks for sharing again!:)

Hi there Biomechanoid, I don't even have to look at my phone to tell you that I am not the caller type. I am not a big fan of chatting on the phone or even texting. I like to see my friends in person and do things hands on. I have certain friends that call me all the time just to chat. Sometimes I pick up and other times I just don't because I know they'll keep me on the phone for a couple of hours when I could be doing something else. These are the same friends that will come over to visit as well. I have one friend that calls me several times a day. He just will keep me on the phone for 2 hours at a time every time. I would rather he knock on my door. Not sure why it is but I really don't like chatting on the phone.

Hey, sid556 and thanks for responding! I understand what you mean. If I had to choose between phone calls and meeting in person, I would choose that last option too. In addition to costs that come with calling people, mobile communication also isn't as vivid as real talking, you don't see the real emotions of person. So for me it's also way better to have a direct conversation than distant one.
