Why do some people prefer talking on the phone, but others prefer text?

I find I'm a person who prefers texting.

Update:

Or email with family and relatives.

    Texting, to me, is good for passing on quick information or asking a question. Otherwise it's an impersonal form of communication.

    I don't prefer it at all.

    Sometimes important messages can be received faster through a text message instead of a phone call and more affective but as mentioned to each their own

    When you hear what someone says the tone of the voice can add to the meaning of the words that text can miss. there can be a sarcastic tone of voice a more serious tone or they might laugh none of which a text message could pick up on.

    I personally hate talking on the phone.  When I'm on a call it can't end soon enough.  I was like that before there was such a thing as texting on a phone.
