"Phone Haters"

I wonder sometimes if there’s a common psychological profile to blogging’s early adopters. One interesting data point is that I, like Amanda and Atrios absolutely despise talking on the phone. This is why even though I like writing and I like politics, I could never in a million years be a “real” political journalist. I can get through a conversation with, say, my dad but as a general matter I just absolutely hate to talk on the phone and will always use email, IM, or SMS if it’s even vaguely plausible as a substitute.
