I can sympathize with people comments here as i’m not a great phone lover myself. Things I experience are

– Switching off when people are talking to me.
– Fear when calling someone I don’t know such as a job interview, making up all kinds of stuff in my head, I overthink it, get into a major muddle and it all comes out as verbal diarrhoea. It can lead to massive drops in mood, getting myself worked up and anxious.

I much prefer to talk with people face to face, as a lot can be said for reading peoples body language.
